mountain house food information

Oregon Freeze Dry, Inc. was a pioneer in the commercial development of freeze-dried meals and continues to be the world's leader in freeze-dry technology. In the 1960's, Oregon Freeze Dry worked with NASA in adapting these meals to meet the requirements of the space program. This breakthrough in food technology was used aboard most of the Apollo missions and today Oregon Freeze Dry continues to produce many of the foods used on the shuttle flights.

Emergencies can take many forms, from storms to power outages. Keeping food on hand for emergencies protects you in the same way as insurance on your home or auto - for the unexpected. With Mountain House® freeze dried foods in your food reserve, you can be ready for just about any unexpected crisis. Imagine what a lifesaver these foods can be when your electric power is knocked out for several days by a storm.

With Mountain House products on hand and a one-burner stove or NuWick Candle toNuwick Candle heat water (cold water can be used in a pinch), you can still enjoy a hot, satisfying meal in less than 10 minutes. Having a private food reserve makes sense for both financial and security reasons. Use pouches and the New Mountain House ProPak for limited short-term emergencies and cans or Mountain House Emergency Food Kits for potential extended emergencies or an emergency situation affecting a lot of people.

Mountain House® freeze dried foods taste superior to competitive products because Oregon Freeze Dry actually starts with fresh or frozen foods, then cooks and prepares Esbit Pocket Stovethem, and finally freeze-dries them. All the goodness, flavor, and taste are locked in just as if you had hand-made Mountain House Foods yourself from scratch. In comparison, other food companies do not freeze-dry or cook their own foods. They blend the dry components of other companies and package them. Mountain House foods taste as close to fresh, frozen, or better, as you can get. Backpackers, for example, consistently rate us #1 year after year for the best tasting foods and ease of preparation.

Mountain House freeze dried foods are packed in airtight NITROGEN PACKED #10 cans or pouches. Up to 98% of the residual oxygen has been removed. Our unique canning process uses both vacuum oxygen removal and nitrogen flushing. This is a time consuming and slightly more costly process...but is well worth it. It is the same process mandated by the U.S. Military for whom we also can. Our foods will have the longest shelf life available...up to 30 years! We've been around for 40 years so we know first hand.

Each of our cans is coated with a protective enamel inside and out for double protection, including the lid. The cans contents are protected until you are ready to open and use them. After opening, we recommend using the Mountain House Food contents within 1 to 2 weeks for best results and taste; using the convenient resealable plastic lid between uses. Treat any leftover food as you would fresh food.

As of 2006, we have changed our shelf life from 5 years to 7 YEARS!! Based on storage studies conducted over many years, our shelf life is at least 7 years from date of manufacture, as long as the pouch is stored unopened in a cool area. After 7 years, a change in flavor and appearance may be noticed. For best results, avoid prolonged storage at temperatures above 75° F (24° C).
