Freeze dried food - if you're into carrying light, this is for you. These are properly sized portions and pretty tasty too! SHIPS FREE WITH ANY RATION ORDER!
Freeze dried food is good when potable water is available so that you don't have to carry it, like when trekking in Finland. Blå Band stuff has the usual modern features - it doesn't require cooking after adding water, and you can eat it straight out of the bag.
The food has a shelf life usually for two years. These won't turn bad after that, though.
Despite the Swedish name, the food itself is actually made in Germany.
