Understanding Shelf Life


Getting the Most From Your Food

Freeze dried foods are long lasting! Sealed in a can, many will last for 25 years or more. Once opened, many freeze dried foods will last 6–12 months or longer.


How to store

Store in a place with consistent room temperature—preferably 50–70°F Make sure moisture cannot easily access your food Keep the lid tight! Moisture and light can soften your food and degrade its nutrients.

When stored properly, most of our products last six months to one year after being opened, such as our fruits, veggies, dairy products, sauces, seasonings and most of our grains and meats! This means for a whole year you don’t have to worry about last minute trips to the grocery store or running out of snack food. Everything you need will always be in your pantry.

A few of our items, once opened, need to be eaten up right way, such as our Pulled Pork, Shrimp and Turkey Dices. We suggest using these products as soon as possible after opening. Under optimal storing conditions, these products could last 2 weeks or longer. You can also refer to the product pages on the website to help you out.

And that’s it! Just pop the lid, take a bite and start tasting the difference of freeze dried food today.
