How food is packaged is crucial to its safety and longevity. Concerns exist about plastic food contact materials in today's food packaging, but Food4Patriots keeps its emergency food in Mylar pouches to keep out air, moisture and light.
— According to recent articles in Medical News Today (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/272910.php) and other media outlets, synthetic chemicals used in food packaging may be leaking into food and causing health risks.
Food contact materials (FCMs), usually made of plastic or synthetic substances and including coatings, laminates in beverage cartons and glass jar closures, are in direct contact with many different types of food. Scientists believe that too little is known about the long-term impact of chronic exposure to these FCMs.
Food4Patriots (www.Food4Patriots.com), the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, takes the packaging of its 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits very seriously. The food is kept in military-grade, easy-to-store Mylar pouches (the same material used to construct NASA’s space suits), which keep out air, moisture and light, stack well, and have shelf lives of up to 25 years.
“People who purchase emergency food from Food4Patriots not only count on it being good tasting and nutritious right away, but also five, 10 or 25 years down the road, and packaging is a big part of that,” said Allen Baler, owner of Food4Patriots. “Our packaging is all about convenience and food security.”
Customers obviously agree. In less than nine months, more than 13 million servings of food have been sold through Food4Patriots. The food in these kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires nothing more than boiling water.
Among the nutritious foods that are part of the Food4Patriots’ kits are:
* Mountain Man Granola
* Apple Orchard Oatmeal
* Granny’s Homestyle Potato Soup
* Blue Ribbon Cheesy Chicken Rice
* Ol’ 49ers Hearty Chili
* Creamy Beef Stroganoff
* Frank’s Five-Star Minestrone.
Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits also receive four reports: “Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.”
