The world is coming to an end, or say they say. With all the wars going on in the world and the unpredictable climate, one cannot be more prepared with foods to keep them going during the bad times. With this in mind, and in a bid to meet the ever growing demand of dried foods, more and more companies are coming up by the day claiming to be the best at what they do. This can leave you very confused, especially if you do not know what you are looking for exactly – what tells apart the best from the mediocre. Before you go on however, you should know that legacy foo storage is here to solve your dried foods problems once and for all. It is one of those companies that is not only out to make some profit, but also ensure that the end user of the product is satisfied with the quality product provided. What right do they have to claim this you might ask?
Well, when you are choosing dried foods, the best dried foods, there are some factors that you should be on the look-out and that will greatly impact on the shelf life of the foods. The very first factor is the residual oxygen in the packaging, the ingredients used in the making of the foods and last but not the least, the materials used for the packaging of the material. Legacy food storage meets these factors and surpasses them by far as you are about to realize.
Oxygen, from your high school biology, supports life. Without it, there is no life. On the other hand, bacteria is the reason why food goes bad. It therefore goes without saying that if you get rid of the oxygen, the bacteria will not thrive and the food will have a longer shelf life. The bare minimum that is set by the industry is 2%. The company surpasses this and goes to lows of 0.11%. Outstanding right? With such low levels of oxygen, you can be sure that no organism will thrive long enough to make the food go bad. After flushing the oxygen out with nitrogen, the company introduces an oxygen absorber in the packaging to suck up the remaining gas.
The material that are used in the packaging play a huge role in ensuring that the foods have a longer shelf life. The company spends a considerable amount of money in purchasing quality storage products – Mylar which will not allow in any moisture or oxygen after they have been gotten rid of. In addition to the Mylar, the company makes use of plastic containers which protect the foods from rodents as well as from direct sunlight. There have also been reports proving that the plastic packaging comes in as a handy floating material in times of floods.
Last but not least is the ingredients that the company uses. You should note, that while other companies claim to have foods that last up to 25years, they make use of Canola, an ingredient that can only last for 2 years. Legacy food storage however does not use Canola as an ingredient but instead uses only the highest quality ingredients that have been proven and certified by the relevant authorities.
If you are looking to be prepared in times of calamity, Legacy food storage is your best shot.
