Mountain House™ freeze-dried foods are second to none in terms of quality and taste Freeze-Dried foods offer many advantages over dehydrated foods. To begin with, they taste much better because through the freeze-drying process the foods retain their taste, texture, and shape of fresh frozen foods. In addition, freeze-drying locks in the freshness, vitamins, nutrients, color, and aroma of fresh frozen foods while providing the shelf-stable convenience of canned and dehydrated foods.
All the contents of a Mountain House pouch are freeze dried to allow for up to 30-year shelf life. Mountain House has also tested the pouches and tasted great 25 years after the manufacture date and they were still safe to eat and good.
