You may not have thought to add seasonings, heirloom seeds, or sprouting seeds to your long-term food storage and emergency plan. It’s ok to approach emergency food as basic survival food, but we think you should enjoy what you eat during an extended disaster situation! Seasonings, packaged for long-term storage, are just the thing to perk up a post-disaster meal. And having heirloom seeds stored means that you’ll be able to plant a garden and have your own fresh veggies. Sprouting seeds are your food storage’s under-appreciated super hero. Sprouting seeds need very little space, no dirt, and in less than a week you can grow your own nutrient-packed, fresh vegetable. How’s that for handy? Including these items goes a long way to making your food storage go farther. Sprouts will also give you something like a salad in a disaster if you don’t grow your own lettuce.

   This list is a great start. I think you should add most beans, hard wheat(need grinder), rolled oats, pasta, white flour(yes, bleached), cream of tartar(for adding to the Baking Soda 1 to 2 to make baking powder as needed), green coffee whole beans(roast as needed).    A better option to bottled High Fructose Corn Syrup drinks would be powdered drinks made with sugar. There are ones that will store long term.    All of this should be stored in Mylar bags with O2 absorbers of correct size and sealed with a hot iron. For extra protection you can put the mylar bags inside of food grade 5 gallon buckets but that may not be necessary. Store this way, everything I mention should keep for at least 25 years when stored around 65F.     This will form the staple of your long term food storage and supplement all that you should have in your well stocked and rotated pantry. If you wish to further extend this you can add professionally packaged long term storage meals from companies like Augason Farms but samsclub has 30 day buckets shipped for a reasonable prices. (I don’t work for either of them) You can add the rice and beans to many of the meals to add additional calories/extend them.     Don’t wait start now, Mylar bags and O2 absorbers are not expensive and can be bought online from many sources. I find that eBay has a lot of sellers to choose from. Be sure that the O2 are big enough for your bag. I use 2000cc for my 5 gallon Mylar bags. Be sure that they are really 2000cc some sellers cheat – read their ratings and reviews.

Specifically the article details how long to store pre-packaged dog food: Canned food = 2 years from manufacture date (some are 3 years). Dry food = 1 year from manufacture date (except Lamb-6 mos). Treats = 1 year from manufacture date. For more information about your specific pet food brand, contact your local pet food retailer or the manufacturer. For a long-term supply over three years, you can store bulk foods that you can make into pet food. Bulk quantities of grains, like wheat and corn are fairly inexpensive and have nearly unlimited shelf life. Add protein sources, such as dried meats and eggs, as well as vitamin, mineral, and protein supplements your stockpile to assure adequate nutrition. (Vitamin C can be stored almost indefinitely.) Store bags/boxes and bulk grains in sealed cans or plastic buckets. Hope this helps! Tess

It can be difficult to find foods that are properly packaged for long-term storage. That’s where Emergency Essentials comes in. We stand by our packaging; we use BPA-free, food-grade plastics, double-enameled, stainless steel metal, and metallized bags that are air-tight and water-tight. Our freeze dried meals and dehydrated foods can last up to 25 years when kept in proper storage conditions (stand-alone pouches and MREs excepted). That means that unlike those cans of tuna fish and sardines, you don’t have to rotate your SuperPails, Emergency Essentials cans, and just-add-water meals. MREs and pouches not stored in airtight buckets have a shelf life of around 7 years if kept in proper storage conditions.

Regarding long-term storage of canned dog food, I talked to a dog food company person about two years ago.  He said that a 3-yr date stamped on the cans is just so that people will believe it.  He said that in reality, unless the cans or contents are compromised, the cans will last indefinitely if kept in a cool dry place.

Aric, Quinoa has a 15 to 20 year storage life when properly packaged in an oxygen-free environment. While it doesn’t last a lifetime, it is a good choice for long-term food storage.

Esther, Although I am a firm believer in having sproutables in my short and long term food storage, I did not add these to this list because certain seeds have different lifespans and they need specific storage guidelines in order to stay viable. Thanks for the comment. Tess

Calories are a crucial factor in your food storage planning. To determine your family’s food storage needs, think first in terms of calories per person per day, and then in terms of nutrients (protein, vitamins and minerals) provided—and finally, in terms of cost per serving. Measuring servings isn’t reliable because a cup of orange drink, a cup of beef stroganoff, a tablespoon of butter, and a quarter teaspoon of salt all count as a “serving.” Depending upon the food choices, a person could consume three servings a day and only get 600 calories!
