Quit stockpiling canned goods for emergencies and use them to create mouthwatering, healthy meals, starting with these recipes for salads, sides, and more!
While there are many opinions on this subject, I would guess this info is based on a can or two, now and then that ages on the shelf. Buy canned goods and eat them. Buy frozen foods and eat them. Buy fresh foods and eat them. If you’re interested in long-term shelf life, buy freeze dried foods in #10 cans. They have 30+ year shelf life. Buy rice, whole wheat, pinto beans, milk powder, sugar, etc. in #10 cans specified as long-term shelf life. You can also buy chicken, beef, ground beef, shrimp and breakfasts foods as well as fruits and vegetables in these #10 cans. These products are easy to store and very light weight if you need to grab everything and hit the road. Most single portions need approximately 1 cup of water to rehydrate. You can rehydrate them with room temp water or hot water if you have fuel sources. The same foods are also available in single, double and four person serving pouches. An excellent choice is Mountian House brand. I have several years supply on hand. Water is also available in 30+ year shelf life 24oz cans. Are most people’s concerns here for the can or two thats fond in the back of the pantry or for true bulk, long-term storage of canned goods in prepardness?? Interesting subject.
Summary. Independent laboratory tests found a toxic food-can lining ingredient associated with birth defects of the male and female reproductive systems in over half of 97 cans of name-brand fruit, vegetables, soda, and other commonly eaten canned goods. The study was spearheaded by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and targeted the chemical bisphenol A (BPA), a plastic and resin ingredient used to line metal food and drink cans. There are no government safety standards limiting the amount of BPA in canned food.
Modern canning methods utilize fruits, vegetables and meats that are processed at their peak of freshness to retain flavor, nutrients, texture and color, and canning is a stable and reliable way to preserve food. It's so stable that some canned goods can be stored safely for up to five years under the right conditions [source: ].
