How would you like to compile your emergency or survival food su0pply cache that will last for over 30 years? Safe for you to eat for years to come?
As an added bonus, you can store this in your home at room temperature. It takes less space than the original food you start with and weighs next to nothing. So, you can imagine how much you can store in a small space! The cost is minimal and it doesn’t even take much time to get it done.
How awesome is that?
No special long term storage equipment, so special freezers or refrigeration or anything like that.
Here’s good news for you. This technology is available for the common man or woman. You can protect your family by stocking up your survival food cache without having to pay an arm or a leg. You will be amazed at how easy this process is for everyone!
(The technical terms, if you’re interested are lyophilisation food preppers or cryodesiccation – but you don’t need to know these words – knowing the term freeze dried foods is enough!)
Determining how to freeze dry food without expensive gear
The ability to freeze dry food to preserve it was first invented during World War II. It was used to get foodstuffs to the front lines during the war so that the soldiers could eat great, nutritional foods. Prior to using freeze drying, the foods shipped to the soldiers would spoil without refrigeration on its way to them. Freeze drying solved this huge problem. It didn’t take long for the public to see the value in this process!
The process includes several steps:
First: Flash freeze the foodstuffs. This is done by freezing the product very fast at extremely low temperatures. This keeps the ice from becoming crystals and damaging the cells of the food.
Second: The moisture is removed from the food by using sublimation (changing it from solid ice to vapor) – Usually with the utilization of a vacuum chamber.
Third: Now that the moisture is removed, the food is locked into moisture- and air-proof bags and stored away.
All you need to do to prepare the food to eat is to add boiling water – this rehydrates the food to its original state. Yum for you when you are on the run with survival gear during a disaster or emergency!
There are several good questions you should pose to yourself before you start:
How quickly can you develop your survivalist acumen?
And how valuable is your survival kit? Whether you are camping or backpacking due to a natural disaster or crisis, you must be prepared for survival.
At Home Freeze Drying – How to freeze dry food
- Vacuum Chamber
Using a vacuum chamber, you can freeze dry your own food products at home. After you have frozen your food – place it in a vacuum chamber with a pump level below 133 X 10-3. This will cause the sublimation process to occur quickly and you can prepare more food in less time. When the food is fully sublimated, it is ready for you to place in your storage cache.
