Q: Where should I store my Wise Food?

A: This depends upon where you live.  Meals made of both freeze-dry and dehydrated components are affected by temperature, moisture and light. Optimal storage conditions for    our meals are in cool, dry places.

Q: How much water will I need?

A: On average, each individual serving requires 1 cup of water.

Q: Do I have to use boiling water?

A: Hot water speeds up the process of reconstitution.  Meals will be ready to eat more quickly when hot water is used.  However, many of the meals can be re-hydrated and ready to eat with any temperature of water.

Q: How are the meals packaged?

A: 100% of our meals are packaged in mylar pouches.  These pouches are then arranged in durable polyethylene buckets for easy storage.  Please see our Smart Packaging section for more information.

Q: How long do the meals last in storage?

A: Studies have proven that freeze-dried and dehydrated foods will last up to 25 years or even longer. For optimal storage life it is suggested that food be stored in a cool, dry place, such as a basement, with room temperatures of 50 to 55 degrees.

Q:  Why use both freeze-dried and dehydrated ingredients?

A: Certain ingredients set-up and taste better when freeze-dried (vegetables, fruits, meats) while others do better dehydrated.

Q: What alternative uses are there for your product?

A: In addition to storing meals for an emergency situation a number of customers have found our products to be versatile enough to be consumed on a day-to-day basis.  Entrees are also often used for camping, hunting and backpacking trips. Others pull them from the pantry at home or take them to work when they don t have time to prepare a meal or go out for lunch.
