When creating any sort of emergency food storage program, one of the best places to start is with sources of protein. The #10 can of ground beef from Mountain House has 24 grams of protein per serving, making it an excellent product. Many people use it as a way to start an emergency food ration system in their home, or a nice way to grow an existing stockpile. In addition to the protein, there are several important nutrients such as iron, calcium and more, which will keep everyone in the family full and healthy for a long time. 4
Before opening the can, it will last for 25 years or longer on the shelf, making it a great emergency food. Once it is opened, the ground beef can last for a few weeks in the can before being prepared, or several days after preparation (with refrigeration). Whether it is consumed only during emergencies, or taken out on camping trips or hiking to help ensure everyone has enough to eat, it is an excellent source of high quality food for everyone.
