Freeze Dried Dehydrated Meals
Freeze dried and dehydrated foods are often thought of for long term situations. It seems a perfect fit because they can be stored for up to 25 years so remote club houses, long boat trips or anywhere there is a risk of power loss or sudden isolation from normal shopping. However, as you remove the water from foods you reduce the size and the weight making those meals compact and light weight so they then become ideal for short outdoor activities such as camping and hiking or just any personal adventure. They have also become an easy prep meal and a good source of nutrients plus calories. We like ReadyWise because they have taken two extra steps for quality and usability. They use the method they believe best preserves the food taste so they balance between freeze dried and dehydrated methods. They also run an active program to identify and reduce allergens. ReadyWise requires each of their raw materials suppliers to provide them with a Certificate of Analysis with accompanying test results verifying that the raw materials provided are free from any trace of shellfish, fish, peanuts and tree nuts. Additionally, through their own internal allergen identification, storage segregation, and sanitation practices, they are taking every effort to ensure our products are allergen free. We think these extra steps add to the fun, joy and wonder of being in touch with nature. We hope all this adds to your ability to enjoy where you are and what you are doing.
