Whether you’re looking for a healthy snack, food for an upcoming camping trip, or non-perishable items to add to your emergency food supply, dehydrated food is the answer.

Dehydrated fruits, vegetables, and meats have a long shelf life, making dehydrated food great to stockpile as part of your emergency food supply. Dehydrated foods last much longer than their fresh counterparts.

These foods are also lightweight, making them great to take along on camping trips and hikes. A snack of dried fruit or jerky can provide a great energy boost when you’re out in the bush.

The health factor is an added bonus as well. Dehydrated foods provide vital nutrients, vitamins and protein. They're a healthy alternative to pre-packaged snacks stuffed with chemicals and GMO.

    Hardtack is a dried bread, pemmican is preserved fat. A healthy diet requires carbohydrates, fat, and protein.

      You don’t need carbohydrate(!) or ANY plant material, for that matter. I have been eating meat (plenty of internal organs), eggs, some fish, cheese, poultry and fried fat. Everything is fried in fat. I had a mild stroke a few months ago when I agreed to eat some green beans, but reversed the semi-paralysis of my right side within two weeks by adding MORE fat! A doctor I consulted for pain from an old back injury took my blood and couldn’t find anything wrong: my cholesterol levels are normal for my age (69 years old). It is carbohydrate that causes diabetes, elevated cholesterol levels and a host of other ills … besides, NOBODY who has not been bitten by an affected tick is congenitally allergic to red meat – did you know that? Google “meat allergy” and you will find that the allergen is a CARBOHYDRATE component in the meat, known as “alpha gal” (galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose). Some people are born with allergies to all kinds of vegetative material, but not to meat and fat! That should tell you something, methinks.
