We recently had a chance to re-evaluate the latest Mainstay Food Ration Bars.
Which are vacuum packed, nutrient rich emergency food bars with a 5 year shelf life. They are available in 1,200 calorie, 2,400 calorie and 3,600 calorie bars intended for 1, 2 and 3 day rations in a survival situation.
The mainstay bars are advertised as cholesterol free and non-thirst producing. The low protein and low sodium content also reduces water requirements and the feeling of thirst during consumption. In a hard dough type consistency and a light lemon taste, these food ration bars are actually not bad in the taste department.
Each pack is made up of 400 calorie pieces, easily to break apart from the rest of the bar. They are affordable enough to order a case of what size you think is convenient, placing a few days worth in your survival bug out bag and storing the rest with you other food supplies.
We see an advantage in using the Mainstay bars to serve as your emergency food supply for your survival bug out bag due to it durable packaging and long shelf life, as well as for other applications (caches and general food supply).
