We use only Mountain House FREEZE-DRIED entrée pouches because they are simply the best tasting, highest quality, longest storing and fastest preparing food reserves available ANYWHERE! Read on and I’ll tell you the whole story.
Over the years, we’ve tasted just about ever brand out there and nothing comes close for taste and ease of use. You see, other “pouch meal” or plastic bucket food storage manufacturers use inexpensive and cheap to make dry blended powdered “soup base” mixes. They then toss in a sprinkling of freeze-dried or dehydrated vegetables and say, or imply, that they are “freeze-dried meals”. Don’t believe it. This is why other brands look & taste like watery soup mixes, because they are!
Mountain House is the ONLY, yes I said only company that actually prepares, cooks and FREEZE-DRIES their own meals and foods. This entire process ensures their full flavor and gourmet taste are preserved together for long term storage.
I’ve personally been to their corporate headquarters and factory and what I saw was amazing. I’ve never seen quality control and standards this high before. I’ve visited many food storage packaging companies around the country and nothing comes close to Mountain House or their parent company Oregon Freeze-Dry’s facilities. They are the Kelloggs® or General Mills® of the industry. Every step of the freeze-dry process is tightly regulated to insure a perfect product every time. This is a sizeable company that is USDA approved and makes freeze-dried foods not only for their own brand but for a variety of other food companies and even the U.S. military.
1) They start by using fresh foods like you would at home and add seasonings to
make their proprietary gourmet recipes.
2) Next they mix the meal ingredients and fully cook them to perfection.
3) After cooking, they FLASH FREEZE them to as low as 60 degrees below zero.
4) They then FREEZE-DRY the foods in “space sublimation” chambers to remove
98% of the moisture & water out of the food. The final product retains its same
shape, texture and full flavor.
5) The final step is to package the freeze-dried product in either pouches or cans with an oxygen absorber inside.
There is much more to it than this, but you get the gist it. It’s the secret of why their foods taste superior to the competition because everything is cooked together just like you would at home THEN freeze-dried to lock-in that goodness and savory flavor.
One of the ‘5 deadly enemies’ to food storage is oxygen. You see, whether it is freeze-dries foods or powdered blend mixes, oxygen MUST be removed from the final packaging for long term storage. The best way to do that is by using an oxygen absorber packet (about the size of a sugar packet). Properly sized for the packaging, they will absorb over 99% of the residual oxygen. Residual oxygen otherwise will oxidize and ruin the food over time. The more the residual oxygen left in the package, the faster the food oxidizes and goes bad.
Having the correct size oxygen absorber packed in every pouch or can is ESSENTIAL to insure a long shelf-life. Beware: MOST POUCH BUCKET COMPANIES DO NOT USE OXYGEN ABSORBERS!
We recently had one company tell us that they “nitrogen flushed” their pouches before sealing them to remove the residual oxygen. We had our doubts and decided to hired not one, but two independent outside testing firms to test for residual oxygen levels in several company’s pouches, including Mountain House. Both testing companies came back with the just about same results which were down right scary.
We found some company pouches had over 20% OXYGEN content inside (the air we breathe is about 21% oxygen)! That meant that their bogus “nitrogen flushing” claims were worthless. Other’s oxygen levels varied from package to package and company to company. None used oxygen absorbers. Mountain House was the ONLY company that was consistently 99%+ oxygen-free. The industry standard is at least 98% oxygen removal to ensure long term storage. No other brand we tested consistently met that standard except Mountain House.
We recently did some research on food pouch material and what works best for long term storage. We were very surprised at what we found. Nearly all food storage pouch food storage bucket companies use a 1 to 3 layer mylar material for their pouches. Most of these materials you can see straight through when held up to light (light is another of the ‘5 deadly enemies’ to food storage). Nearly all would allow for light and oxygen transfer through the pouch to the inner food, thus GREATLY reducing their shelf-lives.
Realistic shelf-lives with companies using these materials (with or without a nitrogen flush) is probably closer to 2 to 5 years, nowhere close to the 25 years they tout. Even if an oxygen absorber were used in these pouches, the oxygen transfer through the material would only be accelerated because of the vacuum effect caused by the oxygen absorber inside.
Conversely, Mountain House uses a 7 layered pouch that includes an actual layer of foil sandwiched between the layers. This multi-layered food pouch has been proven superior over the test of time. With nearly 50 years of research & testing and selling millions of pouched foods to campers and the U.S. military, they have a tract record second to none with proven results to backup their claims. These pouches cost a little more (as any premium product does) but the protection it provides, like a well made home security safe, is well worth the extra cost. Yes, their 7 layered pouch is a VERY BIG DEAL!
Compared to dry blended powdered mixes the difference is huge. Once reconstituted, freeze-dried foods look and taste just like freshly cooked frozen foods from the grocery store. That’s what customers want… great taste and super long shelf-life! We have conducted consumer taste test over & over and Mountain House has always been the clear winner… even with picky kids! I’ve seen kids time and again come back to our booth display at expos and ask for seconds or thirds. That says a lot!
AWESOME!!! D.L., Casper, WY
This is the best food in a pouch I have ever had. The chicken was tasty and moist and the taters had that freshly peeled potato taste.
Their superior taste, especially over long term storage, is incomparable. We have actually tasted Mountain House freeze-dried pouched food that was over 30 years old and it still tasted and looked great.
Another big reason they are better is their ease of preparation. Because Mountain House is fully cooked, prepared and freeze-dried, they reconstitute nearly instantly with hot water in just 5-8 minutes compared to powdered mixed blends that require cooking or simmering for up to 20 minutes or more.
Consider this important fact. No other company actually FREEZE-DRIES their own meals except Mountain House. Freeze-drying is not a cheap process like blending dry powdered ingredients that anyone could do themselves. That’s the reason no other company does it. It requires an incredibly expensive investment of specialized equipment, tons of quality control steps and a lot of time to make each item, but it is the SECRET of why their foods are superior. This process is also the secret of why their food will actually store for 25 years in cans and 10 years in pouches.
Mountain House has been in business for nearly 50 years and is the largest freeze-drying company in the world. No company in any industry stays in business this long without making a superior product and that’s just what they do.
Most of the competition has been around for only 2-6 years yet boast unsubstantiated claims of 25 year shelf-life. How can they make such claims when they have been only around for a few years? Where’s their 25 year real life data to back up their claims?
Know what you are really buying and not just hype!
Here’s some final closing advice from someone who has been is this industry nearly 30 years. You are spending good money to protect you and your family, just like an insurance policy, or buying high quality home security safe, so get the best for your investment dollar.
For my money, Mountain House offers the best tasting, fastest making and longest storing food reserves in the industry. They are ones you can count on when you really need to use your food reserves.
