Why You Need to Keep Your Food Supply a Secret

Why You Need to Keep Your Food Supply a Secret 0

There is a sense of pride in food prepping, and television shows such as Doomsday Preppers sensationalize the process by showing boastful preppers who tell all about their supplies and how they are stored. What these preppers don’t realize is that they could be making themselves a future target of those who don’t prep. They could even become the target of governmental agencies responsible for distributing food to the public. Letting people know you have food is an invitation for trouble when food is scarce, which is why you need to keep your food supply a secret.

Salt: An Essential in Food Supply

Salt: An Essential in Food Supply 0

I f you are storing pure salt properly, it has a limitless shelf life. Iodine and anti-caking ingredients limit that shelf-life. In order to store salt long-term, it must be stored in an air-tight container. The cardboard cylinders it comes in at the grocery store are not suitable for long-term storage because salt will act as a dehydrator and pull water from the air even through the cardboard. That doesn’t mean that you have to remove salt from its container, but that container should be placed in something that will not let any moisture get in. Don’t use metal containers, as salt will corrode it.
