Freeze Dried Food Pouches vs #10 Can Size
Have you ever opened a #10 can of freeze dried or dehydrated food and wondered what to do with the rest of the ingredients, before it's not good any more? I have — because there are just two of us now.
It seems that every brand has pouch sizes or small cans — which is great! And the choices are just as varied as the #10 cans: like fruits, vegetables, lasagna, pasta parmesan alfredo, sweet and sour stir fry, granola with milk and cinnamon apples, quick cooking oatmeal, spices, meats, and even pilot bread crackers.
Why am I excited?
- Mainly because having freeze dried food in pouches means that I won't waste half the food when I open a #10 can. Since there are just the two of us, opening a #10 can means that we must eat all the food inside within a month or two for optimum nutrition. Or, I would have to seal the food up again with my FoodSaver. Pouches solve that problem.
- Another reason is that the pouches are perfect for taking camping, backpacking, or adding to our 72 hour emergency packs.
- Pouches also have a shelf-life of up to 25 years.
- And they're filled with the same high quality food.
