Since 2001, the Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Science department of Brigham Young University has done extensive testing (including taste tests with 50 people and vitamin analyses) on the following food products: powdered milk, rice, baking powder, instant potatoes, dried apples, all-purpose flour, pasta, pinto beans, wheat and powdered eggs. These are usually stored by people who are looking to have a long term food supply that they can rely on in the event of a disaster or emergency.
Of course, it goes without saying that not all foods are alike when it comes to eating quality and nutritional value after long term storage and this is why this food storage research was conducted. There are foods that don't do well in storage while there are foods that can stay good for years. Obviously, it's a good idea to acquire this knowledge so you can set up a better food supply.
With this 4-page guide, you'll know the best foods for long term storage. What about the foods that didn't do well? This guide will provide tips to optimize food quality during storage in order to maintain or lessen the effects of storage to the eating quality and nutritional value.
Check out the results of this food storage research so you can be guided accordingly while you're setting up your food supply.
