IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO PREPPER and PEOPLE WHO STOCKPILE COMMERCIAL FOODS FROM COMPANIES
I don't know if anything like this has been posted before but for the last few weeks I have been cleaning out things around here and on those things is my food stash. Mind you, I have been stashing food for about 10 years. I have foods from several different companies.

As a side note let me just throw this in their real quick: I had a three month supply from a company that I received about seven or eight years ago and it had been stashed under my bed. I threw it out.

One more sidenote: I used to work for one of the major storable food companies. I used to sell this stuff to customers. Now I feel like I have jilted them.

So back to what I was saying, as I began clearing out things I started selling and throwing things out. What really struck me is how much of the food had actually gone "bad".

Almost all of the foods from EFoods and My Patriot Supply were bad. What I mean by bad? Let me explain:

Upon opening the bag the contents were a bit discolored. Well maybe that's part of the natural aging process and they're still actually edible, so I go to prepare them. Potato soup is gross. Cheesy broccoli and rice, gross. Granola, rancid. Cheesy potato soup was tolerable. Creamy chicken and rice, let's not go there. Tasted like ass.
.
I mean you can still live on the stuff I guess, but is this really what peole paid for? Weren't we told that these foods would keep for 25 years? I'm calling BS.

I mean after all their dehydrated freeze-dried so they're supposed to retain their viability right?

I'm going to go dig some more and experiment some more and document some more. I really believed in the products that I was selling to customers. I swear to God I hope that this is not common because if it is I have this crap on my conscience.

Please check your own stash, or if you already have and have found out that your foods suck and you had to throw them away or get rid of them, respond and let me know.

The companies that I have foods from are:

EFoods
My Patriot Supply ( think they changed the foods from Patriot Pantry to Ready Hour or something like that.)

one more thing, I had several fruit and vegetable packages that are freeze-dried. Inedible. Just plain Inedible. I think I would have eaten the packaging in an emergency before I would have eaten the actual foods inside them.

Not being the least bit religious, but I was wondering the other day how they stored grains in the BC era. I was thinking about the old story where Joseph had a dream about a famine and they stored grains for 7 years in preparation of the famine and saved the people. What all did they store, how did they store it and how much did they store to save so many people?

I ate 5 year old efoods direct a couple of years ago and it was fine. It wasn't the best tasting stuff, but some of it wasn't that bad.
I just see it as an easy, and cheap way to have storable food, unless you want to spend weeks making your own.
Even mac and cheese and dry packaged mix stuff off the store shelf lasts plenty of time. I ate 5 year old mac and cheese, 8 year old Knorr Sides and they all tasted fine and were not bad, I just had to break it up after sitting for that long.

I would recommend to apply KISS. Stock up on staples, raw and uncooked. I don't really want premade stuff made by some for profit company that was sold as "survival food".

Is the company still around even anymore? And how long was the company in operation?

A lot of this prepper stuff being sold is garbage and they don't care because the company will be dissolved before any long term food goes bad.

Are.you storing the food items inside of glass canning jars? The really big ones are great for this. For cereals or trail mix just mix it right in the jar, flour, sugar, all that can go right in the jar, open the package and pour.
Small packets of food can be pushed down in there and stored in the packet
Freeze your flour for 48 hours before you store it. That kills any weavels or larvae that may be hiding in there

A jar of fresh made ghee (butter oil) where the jar was sterile and sealed properly will last for a hundred years.

Basmati Rice, stored properly, will last indefinitely. It is the king of rice, cooks in 12 minutes, easily digested and tastes like popcorn.

Dried Beans (lentils and mung beans fast cooking and most digestible) stored properly, will last decades. High protein and easy to digest.

Wheat berries store for 10-20 years. Just need a grinding mill to make flour as you go.

Canned vegetables are good for 5 years. I have carrots, green beans, spinach, corn, tomatoe, potatoes, etc.

Properly freeze dried vegetables likewise but you might need to do it yourself to do it right.

Salt, Pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and freshly ground spices like those in mixed curry, properly sealed in small serving containers, will last a decade. The spices in curry are anti-inflammatory, increase digestion, anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, and are tasty.

So quite simply you have FRESH MADE rice and beans with vegetables in a butter/curry sauce and flat-bread at the ready for super cheap, without relying on the dubious "ready made" freeze dried techniques that promise 20 year shelf life that winds up being more like 3 or 4 MAX.

I'm a good Catholic. Joseph interpreted the Pharaoh's dream. There would be 7 excellent harvests then 7 years of drought. So Pharaoh had food stored during the good years. I think it was mostly grains and Egypt grew wheat mostly. They stored things off the ground in a mud brick thing I have no idea what is called. Its about ten feet by ten feet by ten feet high. He would have had row after row of these things. They ate a lot of bread back then.
