Freeze dried foods from Future Essentials

Most Preppers stock #10 sized cans in their larder for the long term because it's the
most popular size available. It's difficult to find a #2.5 can of freeze dried food, and
it's good to find Future Essentials in this size. A #2.5 can is small, and ideal for
ingredients you don't use as often.

A top manufacturer of the convenient #2.5 size can, Future Essentials has a variety
of freeze dried meats, grains, cheeses and other dairy products. The size is
convenient as it enables use of contents at a smaller size, so there isn't waste. Most
freeze dried foods must be consumed within 2-weeks of opening. Boredom quickly
sets in when you must eat the same food until the ration is gone. That's what makes
the #2.5 can such a wonderful option for the Happy Prepper's pantry.

Wondering how a #2.5 can compares to a #10 can?
Well when it comes to eggs, a #10 can of powdered eggs / 10oz Makes 2 dozen
Extra Large Eggs; while a #10 can, such as one from Honeyville Farms, is a 2.25
pound can, packed with enough whole powdered eggs to make 85 large whole
eggs.  Future Essential's Dried Whole Eggs are produced exclusively from fresh eggs
harvested from chickens in the United States. A #2.5 can is about the size of a classic
baking powder can, roughly 1/4 the size of a #10 can.

Future Essentials offers many fine products, our favorites include the conveniently
sized cheeses and bread crumbs; however, when you buy online beware when you
comparison shop that Future Essentials packs #2.5 cans, which are much smaller
than the traditional Prepper size, which is a #10 can. These are wonderful to have
because they are smaller you won't find much waste because you'll use up the
contents; however, you may expecting a #10 can. Look carefully at the product

We recommend the following Future Essentials Products:
