About Mountain House
During the Vietnam War, the Department of Defense put out a request for food that tasted better, lasted longer and weighed less than old K and C rations. Their parent company, Oregon Freeze Dry, responded to that request and won the contract. They immediately started making freeze dried food for the United States Special Forces. They have continued to make food for the United States Special Forces and other branches of the military ever since.
As the war began to wind down, Oregon Freeze Dry took the surplus rations to military surplus stores, where they rapidly sold out. It was then in 1968 they realized there was great consumer demand for freeze dried food and Mountain House was born.
Mountain House #10 Cans Packed in airtight #10 cans, Mountain House freeze-dried foods have the longest shelf life available. We can confidently claim a 25-year shelf life, because our testing has shown the shelf life exceeds 25 years! These independent university studies were performed on actual 20-, 25- and 30-year-old product stored under real-world conditions, which weren’t always ideal -- not on newer product exposed to an accelerated-time environment in a laboratory. In addition, we have personally tasted cans that were 35 years old and still taste great! The interior and exterior of the cans are coated with protective enamel for double protection. Our canning process removes at least 98% of the residual oxygen, meeting stringent U.S. Military specifications. Your food is protected until you are ready to enjoy it.
