There are 4 methods of maintaining a solid food supply. Freeze dried foods are one of them. These kinds of food retain a higher percentage of nutritional value than other foods and they are easy to store away for further use. Most of them have a long shelf life too, which is great for many people.
- Freeze dried foods This is what I would call the “cream of the crop” for survival food simply because freeze dried foods retain higher percentage of nutritional value than some other choices while at the same time being easy to store and stow away.
- Dehydrated foods are similar to freeze-dried foods in that a lot of food takes up only a small space. As mentioned before most of the nutritional content is still intact, but it does not equal that of freeze dried foods.
- If you only consider nutritional content, then canned food is definitely the way to go. The only drawback to this method is the weight and space it takes to store this type of food. Canning with jars and actual cans is a method nearly as old as the pioneers that settled into the United States.
