At What Temperature Should I Store Freeze-Dried Food?

by ben 08 Apr 2011
Temperature to Store Freeze Dried FoodAs you are looking at different food storage options, you are probably wondering how to get the longest shelf-life.  Especially if you need to store freeze dried food. There are some people that think the garage is a good place to store their food, but in most cases it's not recommended because of the extreme temperature shifts that can occur inside a garage or attic (depending on your location of course). Freeze-dried food should be kept in storage that stays under 75 degrees.  The cold does not affect the product adversely but the heat will and if the heat is higher than 75 degrees you start to lose out on the guarantee of  up to a 30 year shelf life.  So basically avoid hot temperatures as much as possible. Many people choose to store their food in the basement where it stays on the colder side most of the year.  If you have a cold storage room, this would be ideal, but if you don't have a basement or storage area, don't worry too much.  Just try to keep the temperature under 75 degrees in you storage area (whether that in a closet, under a bed, or in the pantry). Saratoga Farms and Mountain House products are produced and stored in temperature controlled facilities so make sure you do all you can to keep it in similar conditions to ensure it will be great tasting, nutritious, and safe when you need it.
