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 sharp cheddar cheese 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, eat right out of the can or soak in water for 10 minutes, then enjoy.
Helpful Hint: Store a can opener with your cheese, so you have it when you need it.
Directions: Add cheese right into recipes with no added water. Can be eaten out of the can as a snack with no rehydration needed. To re-hydrate cover 1-1/2 tbs. of shredded cheese with 1/8 cup warm water. Let stand 10 minutes and drain off excess liquid. Yield: 1-1/2 tbs. (1 oz) cheese.
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 manufactured date, look at the label on the can. There should be a code similar to this one below:
8034 b2 19
All you need to look at is the first set of numbers (8034) - that is the date code in Julian format. So in the example above, it was made on the 34th day of 2018, which is February 3. 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.
