|This cheese is manufactured at the Bega plant in Bega, Australia. The
people at Bega Cheese, have been making cheese since 1899, and have
found a way to put great tasting, real cheddar cheese in a can. This
product has a natural cream color, medium cheddar flavor and pleasing
texture. It s easy to cut, grate and slice and it s delicious. It's
packaged in Australia for folks who don't have refrigeration, like many
outdoorsmen, survivalists and campers. There are 72/56 gram cans per
case - approx 2 oz per can- single serve cans. Shelf Life There is no
Expiration Date written in stone, because the shelf life depends largely
on the storage conditions (temperature, humidity, altitude,
sunlight/shade, etc.). We do guarantee the shelf life for two years
however, the actual shelf life of the chese will ultimately be
determined by the storage conditions (temperature being the main factor)
and the seal on the can remaining intact and therefore protecting the
cheese from the introduction of oxygen. After this, one can expect some
nutritional value loss, although it will be edible, provide fat and
calories in an emergency, and still be perfectly safe to eat if the can
remains sealed. A quote from the National Cannery Association: "Canned
food has a shelf life of at least two years from the date of processing.
Canned food retains its safety and nutritional value well beyond two
years, but it may have some variation in quality, such as a change of
colour and texture. Canning is a high-heat process that renders the food
commercially sterile. Food safety is not an issue in products kept on
the shelf or in the pantry for long periods of time. In fact, canned
food has an almost indefinite shelf life at moderate temperatures (75° F
and below). Canned food as old as 100 years has been found in sunken
ships and it is still microbiologically safe! We don't recommend keeping
canned food for 100 years, but if the can is intact, not dented or
bulging, it is edible."|
GREAT FOR CAMPING! PERFECT FOR THE BOAT OR RV!
A MUST-HAVE FOR ANY LONG TERM STORAGE FOOD PLAN or DISASTER PREPAREDNESS
Powdered and Freeze Dried cheese products have been available for years,
and they are actually not too bad for some applications. They make an
excellent sauce, dip or spread, but there's just something not right
about spreading cheese on your sandwich like it was peanut butter. For
some things, there is no substitute for the real thing...
This is real cheese that can be grated like any other cheese. It melts,
it can be sliced into thin slices for sandwiches, pizzas, lasagna or
meat loaf, and it behaves just like any other deli-bought cheese it's
great for grilled cheese sandwiches, fantastic omelets or just by the
It's packaged this way in Australia and in the Middle East for folks who
don't have refrigeration, like many in the outback or in third world
countries. The manufacturer is confident it will last "indefinitely".
Since it's in a sterile environment, air can't circulate so germs can't
get to it - there's no reason that it can't store indefinitely. Just
keep it as cool as you can (protect from freezing). And once it's
opened, it's best to refrigerate any leftovers, though it will most
likely last a few more days in a zipper-locking baggie or tinfoil

Note: Before shipping our canned items they are fully
inspected to be sure they are free from dents. We Do Not
Intentionally Ship Dented Cans. We have begun placing cardboard
dividers between all of the cans to ensure that you receive them in good
condition. Due to the rough handling during shipping it is nearly
impossible for canned food items to arrive at your location without
minor denting. Minor denting cannot be avoided and does not affect the
self-life of your canned products. We cannot and will not replace any
canned items that only have minor denting from shipping. You may be
asked to provide photos of the damaged cans to verify the damage.
