Why make dehydrated foods part of your long term food storage?
What does #10 can and #2.5 can mean? And what is the difference?
#10 and #2.5 are the units in which the cans are measured to distinguish between the larger #10 can or the smaller #2.5 can. You can purchase your dehydrated foods in both size cans. To give a rough idea how large each can is, the #10 can is about 1 gallon. Most restaurants use this size can for canned fruits and vegetables. A #2.5 can are about 1 quart. This size can is roughly the size of canned foods in your local grocery store.
What is the shelf life of dehydrated foods and food storage?
As reported by professors in the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Science at Brigham Young University, food properly canned and stored can last up to 30 years. Foods such as wheats, grains, rice, and corn have an estimated shelf life of 30 years more while beans, dehydrated vegetables, dehydrated fruits, and pastas have a shelf life of up to 30 years. The only exception to this time frame would be powdered milks or milk substitutes which have a shelf life of up to 20 years.
