Q: Where should I store my Wise Food?
A: This depends upon where you live. Meals made of both freeze-dried and dehydrated components are affected by temperature, moisture and light. Optimal storage conditions for our meals are in cool, dry places.
Q: How much water will I need?
A: On average, each individual serving requires 1 cup of water.
Q: Do I have to use boiling water?
A: Hot water speeds up the process of reconstitution. Wise meals will be ready to eat more quickly when hot water is used. However, many of the meals can be re-hydrated and ready to eat with water of any temperature.
Q: How are Wise Food meals packaged?
A: 100% of the Wise Food meals are packaged in mylar pouches that each hold 4 adult servings. These pouches are then arranged in durable polyethylene buckets for easy storage.
Q: How long do the Wise Food meals last in storage?
A: Up to 25 years. For optimal storage life it is suggested that food be stored in a cool, dry place, such as a basement room, in temperatures of 55 to 60 degrees.
Q: How much food should we have stored for our family?
