|When the Survival Food Tabs were formulated, a host of factors were considered in order to adapt them to their purpose as a lightweight, emergency. life-sustaining food ration:|
1. The less intake of food, the more efficient the body becomes. Basically, when food intake is reduced, it remains in the digestive tract longer and assimilates more completely.
2. Generally, of the food we eat, a great deal of it is not digested and used up as calories. The Survival Food Tabs are 100% digestible as well as completely assimilated by the body.
3. The quality of the food we eat is more important than the quantity. Poor quality protein, carbohydrate and fat can put a strain on the digestive organ, especially the kidneys.
AVAILABLE IN 2 FLAVORS: ORIGINAL, CHOCOLATE & STRAWBERRY
In the Survival Tabs, we have used protein of a high biological value, which is 100% utilized. This helps protect the body from cannibalism of its own protective tissues. The fat is composed totally of fatty acids which provide the essential ingredients of fat. The carbohydrates are of the high quality and 100% utilized too.
4. In 90% of all survival situations, some additional food will be available. The Survival Food Tabs are designed to be the Margin of Survival. For example, if one were lost in a jungle area, one might have to find grubs, insects, berries, small animals or whatever to eat. One would have to adapt to the circumstances quickly until he found his way out or was rescued. The Survival Food Tabs would be that Margin of Survival, along with whatever one could gather, to sustain oneself as long as necessary. Another example, would be desert or sea survival. In these cases, little supplemental food may be available. The Survival Food Tabs would sustain one as long as he would expect to live normally, before being overcome by exposure, the elements, or lack of water.
Evolved From the Early Space Program The Survival Tabs have a long history. Back in the 1960ís the Federal Government was searching for a food source that could be used in specialty situations. The objective was to find a product that would provide...
The Best Possible Nutrition in the Smallest Possible Volume The resulting research was extremely involved and intense, and the product that evolved was used in the early space program. Eventually, a tablet was perfected and used widely as a emergency food. It came to be known as The Survival Tabs.
12 Tabs provide 100% of the U.S. RDA of 15 Essential Vitamins & Minerals And thatís not all. The reason The Survival Tabs are so effective, is that they are literally jam-packed with concentrated nutrition. The protein we use is of the highest quality only. Thatís important because protein can be of varied quality. If it is poor quality, your body will not be able to assimilate it properly. With most food products, 30%-60% of the calorie content leaves the body unused. Survival Tabs are so completely digestible that 99% of their calorie content can be actually utilized for energy. Ninety-seven percent of the protein content is available for repair or replacement of essential body substances, such as blood, muscle and nerves.
10+ Year Shelf Life The Tabs have been produced and packaged to last at least 10 years. Weíve accomplished this in several ways. Number one, we have compressed the tablets with thousands of pounds of pressure with our specialized tablet presses. Oxygen and moisture, the arch-enemies of food, cannot penetrate the tablets to destroy the ingredients. Number two, we use a heavy-duty, opaque bottle to pack the Tabs. The bottle does not allow either light or outside oxygen to penetrate and deteriorate the product. Number three, the closure is a specially designed screw- type lid which, along with being screwed tight on the bottle, is sealed with tamper resistant tape.
Bottom Line: The Survival Tabs are a convenient, compact, lightweight, lifesaving food ration for any emergency. They are completely nutritious, have a 10+ year shelf life and are absolutely delicious. Just let them melt in your mouth...youíll probably chew them up...they are so irresistibly good-tasting!
Survival Tabs are intended for those emergency conditions where a person must travel light and live on whatever food they can actually carry with them for weeks or even months at a time. Twelve tabs per day supply a considerable portion of the calorie requirements of an active adult. It may be assumed that if the person living on them is required to "hole up", their energy requirement will be considerable reduced. When traveling across country, it may be assumed that at least some other food will be found occasionally. Survival Tabs eliminate the risk or wasted time that might be required to actually hunt for food or go out of one's way to obtain it.
With most food products, 30 to 60 percent of the theoretical calorie content leaves the body unused. Survival Tabs are so completely digestible that 99% of their calorie content can be actually utilized for energy and 97% of the protein is actually available for repair or replacement of essential body substances such as blood, muscle, nerves, etc. Twelve Survival Tabs per day provide more than enough protein so sustain essential body tissues.
By placing one Survival Tab in the mouth every hour or so and letting it dissolve slowly during a 15 minute period of time, assimilation of all nutrients will be maximized and appetite will be fully satisfied.
The Survival Tabs container is of such size and shape as to fit and be carried within a regular G.I. canteen pouch. The small empty space under the lid of this container is filled with and extra plastic bag. If and extra water canteen is needed, the Survival Tabs can be poured out into the plastic bag and be carried in a pocket or backpack while the container is used as a canteen.
There have been several individuals who have lived on a diet of Survival Food Tabs exclusively for 4-5 months. This was done out of necessity, because of their inability to eat or keep down any other foods.
In controlled studies which we have conducted, we've found that when living on a diet of Survival Food Tabs exclusively, one loses from 5-8 lbs. the first week. This is mainly due to the emptying of the intestines of all food previously eaten. After the first week, there is a leveling off and a minimum weight loss of 0-2 lbs. per week. This is in consideration of a normal active daily routine.
The Survival Food Tabs provide greatly larger amounts of calories and nutrition than any other product available. The high caloric content, combined with a carefully balanced amount of all the essential nutrients, provides a "state of the art" product as far as survival rations are concerned.
The Survival Food Tabs are presently marketed to the pilots, yachtsmen and other outdoorsmen, who use them as emergency food rations, as well as an energy pick-up food supplement. They are also popular with long-distance truck drivers who don't want to stop to eat.
Survival Food Tabs are a perfect lightweight, emergency food ration for use in survival kits - and a vast improvement over candies and other quick-energy "fixes" that are currently used.
This is a true "survival food" that will keep you alive and moving for months on the amount you can carry in your own pack

Survival Food Tablets Frequently Asked Questions|
Q. Are Survival Food Tablets supposed to be considered as a sole daily food source or in combination with a daily food intake?
A. The Survival Tabs can be used as a daily sole source food if necessary. However, they were designed with the idea that there would be other foods available either from one'sown stocks or from the land, i.e. game or wildcrafted foods. With this in mind, the Survival Foods could be used to fill in when things were lean. Nonetheless, they can sustain a person for an extended period of time. How long, depends on many factors, including the person's constitution, mentality and activities.
Q. If one has access only to Survival Food Tablets, but enough water and no food, how long could they survive maximum? What would be the medical consequences or complications for doing so?
A. With just Survival Tabs and water, depending on the circumstances of course, one could maintain oneself for 3-4 months without any major difficulties. When the Survival Tabs were first developed, there was a woman, deathly ill and expected to die soon, who could not keep anything down. Someone suggested the Survival Tabs. She went on them exclusively and lived 2 years.
There was another man, who was given 2 months to live by his doctor. He could not eat or assimilate food to any extent. He took the Survival Tabs, and lived another 6 months.
These were sick people and these were random situations, not scientific tests. We have had healthy people go on the Survival Tabs for 2 months, and the result was an initial loss of weight of 10- 15 lbs, then a leveling off of another 10 lbs for the duration of the time. No problems with the organs or their functions.
Q. One tablet provides 100% of some nutrients such as Iron, Vitamin A or Vitamin C. Twelve tablets provide 12 times of RDA?
A. Twelve Survival Tabs supply 100% of the USRDA for practically all the vitamins and minerals indicated on the label, with the exception of Calcium, which in order to have 100% of the RDA we'd have to make the Survival Tab as big as a golf ball.
Q. If one wants to use these tablets for long period of time, for example 4-8 weeks with no food, what would happen with the deficiency of other nutrients?
A. You could survive and sustain yourself for 4-8 weeks with the tabs, but you are right, you'd be dificient in some nutrients which we normally get from regular foods. The Survival Tabs can't replace all the nutrition that your body needs for an extended length of time.
