Meal Kit Supply’s 3-Course Premium MRE
MREs (or Meals, Ready to Eat) are known as 19FD-01-IRATs (Rations, Initial Deployment) to FEMA, and are self-contained field rations that were developed by the U.S. Military for soldiers to eat when food facilities are unavailable. MREs are the most technically advanced food ration in the world. They’re shelf stable, water- and impact-proof, and ready to eat. Because they are intended for soldiers in combat or other high-energy field conditions, MREs are packed with 100 percent of the daily vitamins and minerals required by a person.
Meal Kit Supply’s MREs are prepared and packaged by U.S. Military contractors, so they contain the same menu items that are found in genuine U.S. Military MREs. Each three-course, 1,200 calorie MRE contains an entrée, a side dish, a bread or cracker with spread (peanut butter or jelly), a dessert, and several beverage mixes (including an electrolyte drink). Additionally, each MRE includes condiments, a napkin, a spoon, and a flameless ration heater.
The flameless ration heater is the most unique part of the MRE: it allows you to have a hot meal any time, any where, with no stove, fire, or boiling water required. Heck, you don’t even need clean water! Let us explain: the flameless ration heater is a bag which contains a magnesium packet at the bottom. This packet is activated by 30mL of any type of water (from a lake, puddle, snow, etc.), and will generate enough heat for your entrée and side dish.
What MREs do not contain are preservatives. This is because MRE food is retort packaged. The retort pouch is made of a strong layered combination of polyester, aluminum foil, and polypropylene, allowing the pouch to seal the commercially sterilized food ration for long periods of time (USDA, 2012).
The rugged retort packaging also makes MREs highly durable. MREs are impact-resistant, water-proof, and hermetically sealed against pests. That means you can drop them, cram them, submerge them in water, and keep them at a campsite without rodents (or bears) smelling them.
Because they’re retort packaged, MREs won’t expire for at least 5 years. Meal Kit Supply provides the freshest product commercially available, so you get the longest shelf life possible.
Each MRE includes a Flameless Ration Heater, which is activated by 30mL of any type of water. That means you can have a piping hot meal without fussing with a campfire, your stove, or boiling water. All food is pre-cooked, so you can also eat it cold.
