What is an MRE?
MREs or meals ready to eat, are self-contained, lightweight food rations that were originally developed for field use by the military. They're highly durable, waterproof, and hermetically sealed, making them rugged and built to last.
MREs are precooked individual meals that contain an entree and other components such as crackers, jams, etc... Many MREs such as this one, feature flameless ration heaters, meaning you can have a hot meal no matter where you are.
For these reasons, MREs are the choice of first responders for disaster relief and are a great resource to have on hand for occurrences such as hurricanes, pandemics, etc... MREs help you prepare for anything and ensure you food supply remains ample even in a state of emergency.
What is a Flameless Ration Heater?
Flameless Ration Heaters are water-activated chemical heaters that were introduced in the early 1990s. They contain certain chemicals that once activated create a reaction and heat up rapidly. This ensures you can have a hot meal anywhere, anytime in a matter of minutes.
All you have to do is open the Flameless Ration Heater and insert your entree pouch and add water. It's as a simple as that, a fully cooked hot meal without the need for a kitchen or heat supply.
Each of the MREs in your 16 pack comes with its own Flameless Ration Heater.
MREs are a long lasting alternative to stocking traditional non-perishable foods. With the right care and proper storage, MREs can last up to 5 years. For proper storage, you want to store your MREs in stable temperatures around 55°F-70°F in a cool area to ensure their freshness. Avoid freezing your MREs as repeated freezing and thawing can cause the packaging and contents to crack. To get the maximum shelf-life from each case, it is recommended that you place them in a cool and dry area away from pests and rodents.
