How to "rehydrate" before consuming:

  1. Add 3/4 cup boiling water
  2. Stir
  3. Let sit for approx. 10 mins
  4. Stir & enjoy

Rehydrating Tips:

  • Use a container with a lid to contain as much heat as possible… Have a packable insulated container? Even better. 
  • After soak time is finished, add more hot water if you find the meal dry or crunchy. 

Storage Guidelines:

  • Keep stored in a sealable bag or container
    •  Tip: Vacuum sealing can more than triple the shelf life
  • Keep stored in a cool, dry and dark place
    • For longer term storage, store in your freezer (especially if not vacuum sealed)
  • When dried and stored properly, this should have a shelf life of several months up to a few years.
