What is the shelf life of preparedness foods? It is impossible to give a definitive answer without knowing how the foods are stored and in what containers.
Extended shelf life is primarily affected by oxygen, fat, moisture, heat and time - the lower the values the better. Excessive quantities of these elements will cause loss of nutritional value, off flavors, odors, and rancidity. Handling and physical damage must also be kept to a minimum. Damage to can seams and excessive rust must be avoided. Be sure to observe our storage tips for best results.
Provided that proper storage procedures have been followed, we can offer general guidelines as to the shelf life expectations of Alpine Aire foods. Once the foods leave our facilities we have no control over storage conditions. So be conscientious and avoid high heat - the cooler the better.
NOTE: Although it is possible that some beans, grains, and other types of food will store for long periods of time in ideal conditions, we feel it is inappropriate to promise or suggest shelf lives of any longer than 15 years. AlpineAire Foods does its best, utilizing the latest canning techniques and oxygen absorber technology, to ensure the longest possible shelf life. Because of the various factors which affect shelf life, over which we have no control, we cannot guarantee that your results will match our estimates. In order to maximize shelf life, do not expose to high or freezing temperatures for an extended period of time.
Proper Food Storage Tips
It is crucial that you store food reserves properly.
Avoid exposure to heat and moisture. Make sure foods are not accessible to insects or animals.
Never store food directly on the ground or on concrete floors - moisture can build up inside containers.
Avoid such storage places that experience temperature build-up such as attics, garages or car trunks. Ideally, storage for Gourmet Reserves should not exceed room temperature for extended periods.
Store in a location that's accessible so that periodic inspections are easy. Rotate supplies.
Avoid excessive and rough handling of pouch and canned foods.
