25+ Year Shelf Life!
You'll be ready for anything with a food supply that will last and be there when you need it most. Our 12-grain bread is freeze dried, so it can be stored long term and without needing refrigeration (lasts longer than dehydrated and traditional canned food!). Perfect for emergencies, you can eat it right out of the can or rehydrate by wetting each slice in water.
Helpful Hint: Store a can opener with your bread, so you have it when you need it.
Directions: To rehydrate the bread, just wet a slice in cold or lukewarm water, pat it dry with a towel, and let it sit for 30 minutes in a sealed container (zipper locking bags work great).
Once opened, they will last:
When will your freeze-dried food expire?
The manufacturer guarantees the minimum shelf life of 25 years from when the food was made. To find the production date, look at the label on the can. The production date code on the can could be something like this:
1288 b6 46
The 1288 is the actual date code in Julian format (the 288th day of 2021, which was October 15th, 2021). For example, 0201 would mean 201st day of 2020, 9012 would mean 12th day of 2019; 8067 would mean 67th day of 2018, etc. 25 years from this date gives you the minimum of how long it will last.
Note: Since it is a long-term storage, the shelf life will depend on the conditions under which you store the food.
