Interesting article...thanks!

We noted the longest recommended life was 2 years for white rice, sugar and popcorn, but the longest life for most canned or preserved items was generally 6 mos - 1 year.

Re: Meals in a jar

Ok so revisit the web site and her supplier.

The meals can also be prepared in Mylar bags for those that dislike glass or want smaller portions.

I've emailed the dehydrating company as to their process. They state that there are no preservatives added but I want to know their process. Particularly how they wash away pesticides and herbicides prior to drying. Also asked about GMO veggies. Will post when I get an answer.
