However, the downsides are that such foods may not be long lasting or maybe not be suitable when it comes to tough challenging environments.
The military know this extremely well and hence they spend millions each year to research and develop and ready packed meals for their forces. These are term meals ready to eat (MRE). They are packed securely and designed to last long periods but subject to suitable storage conditions.

- Come in durable and secure packaging
