Freeze Dried Food VS Dehydrated Food: Which One To Choose

When it comes to deciding for Long Term Food Storage, a lot of people comes across a dilemma of choice between Freeze Dried Food or Dehydrated Food.


Let's have a look upon a few factors which will help you to choose for Long Term Food Storage that you are looking for & which can help you during any kind of emergency.

The difference between Freeze-Dried & Dehydrated Food is that in Freeze Drying, 98% of the water is removed whereas, while dehydration, the amount of water removed from food is around 80% which gives the products longer shelf life.
 
Both the solutions can contribute to your Emergency Food Storage, but some more key factors need to be understood before choosing between Freeze-Dried or Dehydrated Food.

So, let's begin with the following factors:


1. Nutrition

Whenever it's about making a choice for Emergency Food for your survival, the most important thing that matters is Nutrition.

While processing the dehydrated food, the amount of nutrition left in food remains 50-60% of the original amount whereas, In Freeze Dried Food, 97% of nutrients are retained. So, when it comes to nutrients, Freeze Dried Food can be a perfect choice.

2. Taste

Flavour is one of the most important factors when it comes to food. No one can enjoy food which doesn't have any taste.  But the good thing here is that both, Freeze Dried Food & Dehydrated food tastes better.

But according to a lot of experts, The process to prepare Freeze Dried Food just involves very little heat which maintains the flavor in the food, thus it tastes better as compared to the dehydrated food.

3. Shelf Life

One of the important factors that matter to a lot of survivors or people who keep themselves prepared for any kind of emergencies or survival situation is Shelf Life.

When it comes to shelf life, moisture plays an important role. If the presence of moisture is more in the product, the less amount of time it will last. Dehydrated Food can lose around 97% of its moisture, so a lot of dehydrated foods can maintain their shelf life up to 15 years or more.

On the other hand, Freeze Dried Food is preferred for long term food storage as 98-99% of the moisture is removed so that they can have a longer shelf life of around 25 years or more.

So, these were some factors that need to be understood before choosing between Freeze-Dried or Dehydrated Food. You can analyze the factors and can make a choice which contributes better for your long term food storage.

Yikes! Pricing Mistake on Mountain House Multi-case Listings

Much Lower Sale Prices Now!

An eagle-eyed customer pointed out to us this weekend that our 70-case MH listing was not priced properly. He found that our MSRP list price was overstated in the listing (compared to what he found on the Mountain House site) and that thus, our 46% discounted price was not as low as we had intended. 

In fact, we then discovered that our new employee had also mistakenly made the same process error on all our Mountain House multiple-case listings for this sale.

Bottom line--

1.  We have corrected all the multiple case listings (the single full case case listings were not in error).

2.  We have refunded all customers whose prior purchases during this month's big MH sale were affected by these pricing errors (averaging over $100 per customer).

3.  We are happy to say today that our multiple case listings--from 6-case packages all the way up to 70-case packages are now SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER in price than they were previously.

We sincerely apologize for that pricing process mistake and we hope you will have another look at the now properly discounted listings.

As a way of extending our apologies, we have increased the discounts (for club members only) on our35-case MH package and on our 6-case MH package

Fact is, the 35-case member discount is now 47%! ... even greater than the previously advertised maximum MH sale discount of 46% (on the 70-case package)!
