9 Food Storage Survival Tips
- Survival Seeds - Every food storage plan should have a minimum of a 12 months supply of garden seeds for growing and maintaining just in case normal foodstuff products never go back to normal following a catastrophe.
- Proper Seed Storage - Your emergency back garden seed products must be stored correctly in order that they continue to be viable and provide the necessary vitamin and mineral rich fruit and vegetables for a healthy diet plan.
- Multi-Vitamins-Should your accessible gardening area is restricted, think about a 12 months supply of water-soluable multiple vitamin and mineral pill for daily use by each individual for the duration of a an extended crisis or disaster situation.
- Check The Dates - Remember that food, medication and vitamins deteriorate with time and should get replaced by the expiration date on the package.
- Food Storage Containers -Many preparedness experts suggest using the #10 tin can which most preparedness companies use when they package their foods.
- Mark It First - Use a permanent pen like a Sharpie to record the exact contents of each can on the lid just in case the paper label is damaged by water or accidentally removed.
- Survival Storage - Always store your bulk food items in food storage containers. Never store your 1 year food storage items in either paper or plastic grocery bags where they may became extremely vulnerable to moisture content, insect damage, and rodent damage.
- Check The Containers - If you are utilizing plastic buckets confirm they are lined with a food-grade plastic material lining which is available from businesses that carry product packaging supplies. Under no circumstances should you ever use plastic trash bags as most are coated with toxic pesticides which may leach into your food storage.
- Don't Stack - Don't stack your food storage buckets or items too high as they may fall and break open during an earthquake.
