This depends upon where you live.

    Wise products are made of both freeze-dried and dehydrated components and are affected by temperature, moisture, oxygen and light. Optimal storage conditions for our foods are in cool, dry places.

    How are Wise foods packaged? 100% of our foods are packaged in airtight Mylar pouches. These pouches are then arranged in durable polyethylene buckets for easy storage. Please see our Smart Packaging section for more information.

    How long do the meals last in storage? Studies have proven that freeze-dried and dehydrated foods will last up to 25 years or even longer. For optimal storage life, it is suggested that food be stored in a cool, dry place, such as a basement, with room temperatures of 50 to 55 degrees. Why use both freeze-dried and dehydrated ingredients? Wise Company uses a combination of technologies to achieve the best taste and quality. Certain ingredients set-up and taste better when freeze-dried (vegetables, fruits, meats) while others do better through dehydration. In these cases, dehydrated ingredients offer all the benefits and better value than foods that have been freeze-dried.

    Freeze-Dried and Dehydration Advantages: Wise Company takes a unique and innovative approach to food production for camping and long-term emergency preparedness. Our ready-made entrées, meats, vegetables and fruits may be freeze-dried or dehydrated. However, both processes promote an extremely long shelf life.

    -Food maintains its original flavor, shape, color, and texture -Food better retains its nutritional value -Food is condensed, taking up less space -With all of its water extracted, food is extremely lightweight -When water is added, the food completely reconstitutes itself

    Wise Company customers enjoy greater peace of mind because of the food's long shelf life and great taste.
