Mountain House Educates Consumers: When Long-Term Emergency Food Isn’t

Third party study finds wide range of oxygen levels in popular brands

Albany, Ore. – February 16, 2015 – Mountain House, the best-selling brand of camping, backpacking, and 
emergency preparedness meals, released results today of a recent study designed to inform consumers how 
popular brands of emergency meals manage oxygen levels, a critical element in long term emergency food.  
This information is increasingly important as consumers continue to move from tried-and-true #10 cans to 
flexible pouches. The study, conducted by Fres-co System USA, Inc., tested the oxygen levels found in Mountain 
House pouches as well as those of six other brands.
Low oxygen levels with little or no variation from pouch to pouch are key indicators of both good process 
control and packaging integrity (other key indicators include: moisture, heat, and light). Oxygen degrades 
shelf life in foods by oxidizing fats and oils. This oxidation causes rancidity and unpalatable off-flavors. 
The presence of oxygen also depletes food of valuable vitamins A, C, D and E.


























“Prolonged exposure to oxygen will cause most foods to become rancid within six months to two years, 
depending on ambient levels,” said Drew Huebsch, R&D manager for Mountain House.  “For truly long term 
storage of food – measured in decades – our research indicates that oxygen levels should be below 3 percent.  
United States Military specifications go even further, requiring oxygen levels to be below 2 percent.”

Four of the tested brands sell pouches of long term food with a claimed shelf life of fifteen to twenty-five years: 
National Geographic, Legacy Premium, Food Supply Depot, and Wise Company food storage.  Three additional 
brands sell camping and backpacking meals often used in emergency “bug out” situations, with a claimed shelf 
life of five to twelve years: Backpacker’s Pantry, AlpineAire, and Mountain House.
The study measured the oxygen levels inside 30 pouches from each brand. Only Mountain House pouches 
maintained an oxygen level of less than 3 percent in all cases, with an average oxygen level of 1.42 percent. 
This bests the U.S. military specification of less than 2 percent oxygen. All other brands had average oxygen 
levels above 3 percent. Food Supply Depot fared the least favorable with near atmospheric average levels of 
oxygen at 17.76 percent.
The study also tested for variation of oxygen levels from pouch to pouch, a measure of reliability and process 
control.  Mountain House again came out on top with a standard deviation of 0.3. The closest competitor, 
Backpacker’s Pantry, had a standard deviation of 2.4, or more than 8.1 times that of Mountain House. 
At the bottom of the list was Wise Company’s survival food at 8.4, representing a variability of 28.2 times 
greater than Mountain House.“We’ve been making Mountain House for nearly 50 years,” says Reiner Bohlen, 
Marketing Manager at Oregon Freeze Dry, Inc., the parent company of Mountain House. “You don’t become 
the gold standard in outdoor meals and emergency food storage unless you make products consumers know 
they can trust to taste great, no matter what. We commissioned this study to see where we stand in the market 
and help determine where we could possibly make improvements. We want to make sure we continue to deliver 
on our promises.”
Brands were chosen based on brand awareness in either the outdoor adventure or emergency preparedness 
segments.  All foods tested consisted of dehydrated and/or freeze dried foods that are prepared by just adding 
water.

About Mountain HouseBased in Albany, Ore., Mountain House has been the first choice of backpackers, hikers, 
campers and emergency preparation experts for nearly 50 years. Why? Great taste, ease of use and reliability,

outdoor freeze dried meal market according to the Outdoor Industry Association. Their line of meals in pouches

This extreme winter survival course teaches service members how to stay alive in Arctic conditions

Few places on the face of the earth can be as unforgiving or as deadly as the frozen Arctic. 
Because of the dangers of the Arctic environment, coupled with the growing strategic importance of this part of the world, the US Air Force runs the Arctic Survival School out of Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska. 
Each year, this five-day intensive training program, also known as Cool School, teaches over 700 servicemembers the survival skills necessary to fight back against nature and survive in the Arctic. 
“Mother nature does not like you in this situation,” Survival Instructor Staff Sgt. Seth Reab, tells his students in the morning freeze. “She’s violent. She’s harsh. Your job is to survive until help comes; her job is to find a way to take your life.”

What is GMO ?

A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Organisms that have been genetically modified include micro-organisms such as bacteria and yeast, insects, plants, fish, and mammals. GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce goods other than food. The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism' defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").

How do you save on butter ? Buy Real Red Feather Canned Butter Cans / Cases- Lowest Prices

Case of Red Feather Butter, at lowest prices anywhere. 



http://www.safecastle.com/red-feather-canned-butter.aspx
MSRP: $195.00 , BUY: 152.00

What customers are saying about Red Feather- If you like REAL butter taste, it does not get any better than this. I purchased it primarily as a long-term survival storage food item that would keep on the shelf. To my surprise, after trying out the first can my whole family is hooked on this as our regular use butter. Normally we purchase the Kerry Gold Irish Butter (which is also far superior to the regular brands), but these New Zealand Cows have one heck of an edge on the competition. - O T
