A Basic Guide To MRE Meals
MREs are known as Meals Ready to Eat, but there are some people who call them self-heating meals. These meal packs will generally contain an entrée, side, and snacks. The meals were originally developed for the American armed forces to carry food when in the field. Each meal was created to provide the soldier, pilot, marine or sailor with the nutrients they need to carry out their active duties in the field while making the rations as portable as possible.

As an MRE can be used immediately, they have proven to be convenient in many different situations. These situations include backpacking, camping, 72-hour kits and emergency supplies. It is possible to eat an MRE cold and straight out of the packaging. You will also be able to heat up the meal using the heater that comes with it.

There are a variety of different choices for MREs including the type of entrée, drinks, snacks, and desserts. You will also be able to shop for these meals by the case, by a combo, by complete meal, and as an individual MRE. The price for these meals will vary depending on the supplier and the options that you choose.

Why Should You Choose An MRE?
The MRE was the brainchild of the United States military and the Department of Defense, so all service personnel was able to eat full meals and snacks while training or in a combat situation. MREs are also critical for civilians and can be used for emergency stockpiling and use during disasters. The civilian market for MREs has a lot of options available, and most will meet the nutritional and caloric needs of a person when access to conventional meals is not an option. These situations can occur when there are floods or other disasters, when evacuations need to be carried out or when there is a power outage.

When you have the right MREs in your emergency stockpile, you will be able to rely on them for nutrition, quality, and taste. As the name suggests, you will be able to eat them at any time directly from the packaging as they are in functional and easily-stored containers. The food containers are also always ready to be used, even in an emergency situation. All you will need to do is add some water and wait 10 minutes.

As the MRE is very easy to store, you can add them to any emergency kit you have in your home or vehicle. These meals have also been designed to offer a long shelf-life which is much greater than anything you will find in the grocery store. This means that you always have food which is ready to eat regardless of the situation you are in.

There are many recreational adventurers who also find MREs to be extremely helpful. When you use these meals, you can simplify your meal preparation and snacking to spend more time having fun. This is why you should consider adding an MRE to your hiking and camping gear. With the number of options available, you will be able to enjoy desserts and seasoning that you like and always have a tasty meal to eat.

It is important that you take the time to prepare for any emergency situation. When you have a supply of MREs, you will be able to withstand any situation. It is possible to buy MREs in 3 to 12-month supplies which will ensure that you have 3 meals every day. You will even be able to customize your choices to ensure you enjoy your meals. High volume orders will also generally benefit from bulk pricing which will make your stockpile cheaper to create.

The Packaging And Extended Shelf Life
MREs use pouch packaging which is durable, resilient and flexible so it can withstand tough conditions. This ensures that you will have an extended shelf life for all of the food in the meal. The MRE will be precooked and self-contained which means that you do not have to refrigerate them.

When determining the shelf-life of the MRE, the storage temperature is a major factor. However, you can expect an MRE to last around 5 years or up to 7 years in the right circumstances. Storing the MRE at a cooler temperature will help them last longer.

The Published Production Date
It is important that you get an MRE with a published production date because this will make them more trustworthy. Reputable suppliers will offer you this to ensure that you always know how old the MRE actually is. You should also use a supplier that does not use any unknown third-party vendors.
