I received a couple of samples of freeze dried meal entrees from Food Insurance: lasagna and beef stroganoff. Pictured above are the contents of the packets as you open them. They come with an oxygen absorber which I removed promptly. (Tip: Remove these before you forget, I’ve done it.)
The instructions are simple: Just add a cup of boiling water, mix well and seal. Leave it alone for 9-10 minutes and it is ready to eat.
Here is what the food looked like after it was ready:
The lasagna was a bit more saucy than the stroganoff. Both were actually quite tasty. I had the family try them as well. The stroganoff was the overall family favorite, but that is more due to personal preferences. You can taste the spices and other ingredients such as chopped onion. The noodles had the right texture, and not mushy. I would give both entrees a thumbs up.
The shelf life is 25 years for the meals that come in the “long-term meal plans” and 7-10 years for the meals that come in the backpack kits.
I was not able to find the individual meal packets online at the Food Insurance website, however I found out upon contacting them that customers calling in, can purchase them for $5 each.
