That's why it's important to do your homework. You need to have approximately 500 pounds per year or 2000 calories per day per person. Some year supply food pack units only contain about 125 pounds of food. This amount would only feed one person for about three months. When purchasing a unit, pay close attention to the amount of food provided in the unit, checking both the weight and the calories provided.

If food is stored under ideal conditions (cool, dry, constant temperature of about 60˚F), it will store anywhere from 3 to 30 plus years. Mixes (pancake, biscuit, etc.) will store the least amount of time, and grains, rice, and beans will store the longest. Fruits and vegetables will store approximately 20 years, and dairy products will store about 5-10 years. For the best results, products must be stored in air-tight containers at a cool, constant temperature. \u003cem\u003e(The approximate shelf life for each product is shown with the product on our website.)\u003c\/em\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c!-- \/TABS --\u003e","published_at":"2019-07-10T00:16:56-06:00","created_at":"2019-07-10T00:16:56-06:00","vendor":"YourFoodStorage","type":"","tags":["Food Type_Beans \u0026 Legumes","Food Type_Grains","Type of Food Storage_Dehydrated Food Storage"],"price":10849,"price_min":10849,"price_max":10849,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":12999,"compare_at_price_min":12999,"compare_at_price_max":12999,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":29412841717869,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"K042","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"16 Bean Mix - Case #10 cans","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":10849,"weight":17237,"compare_at_price":12999,"inventory_management":null,"barcode":""}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0024\/7798\/1805\/products\/16beanmc.jpg?v=1562739756","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0024\/7798\/1805\/products\/16_bean_mix_case.png?v=1562739756","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0024\/7798\/1805\/products\/16beanb2c.jpg?v=1562739756","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0024\/7798\/1805\/products\/nutrition_16_bean_mix.jpg?v=1562739756"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0024\/7798\/1805\/products\/16beanmc.jpg?v=1562739756","options":["Title"],"content":"\u003cp style=\"color: #ff0000; font-weight: bold;\"\u003eSave 20.41%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e \u003c!-- TABS --\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eProduct Description\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis colorful 16 bean mix contains pinto beans, small red beans, small white beans, great northern beans, large lima beans, baby lima beans, kidney beans, black turtle beans, pink beans, yellow split peas, green split peas, lentil and black eye beans.

That's why it's important to do your homework. You need to have approximately 500 pounds per year or 2000 calories per day per person. Some year supply food pack units only contain about 125 pounds of food. This amount would only feed one person for about three months. When purchasing a unit, pay close attention to the amount of food provided in the unit, checking both the weight and the calories provided.

If food is stored under ideal conditions (cool, dry, constant temperature of about 60˚F), it will store anywhere from 3 to 30 plus years. Mixes (pancake, biscuit, etc.) will store the least amount of time, and grains, rice, and beans will store the longest. Fruits and vegetables will store approximately 20 years, and dairy products will store about 5-10 years. For the best results, products must be stored in air-tight containers at a cool, constant temperature. \u003cem\u003e(The approximate shelf life for each product is shown with the product on our website.)\u003c\/em\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c!-- \/TABS --\u003e"}

Ingredients

Beans: pinto, small red, small white, great northern, large lima, baby lima, large kidney, small red kidney, garbanzo, black turtle, and pink beans, and yellow split peas, green split peas, lentils, pearl barley, and black eye peas. No preservatives added. Naturally gluten free product.

For overnight soaking, cover each cup of 16 bean mix with 3 cups water and let stand overnight or 12 hours. For quicker results, add dry beans to boiling water boiling 2 minutes and let stand for 1 hour. In cooking, use same water. Cover and simmer slowly in water until beans are tender, about 2 hours. Add more water if necessary. Season with salt, pepper, onion, or garlic. Cooking tips: to keep skin from bursting, simmer gently and stir as little as possible. Add 1/8 tsp. baking soda per cup of beans to shorten cooking time in hard water. Do not add tomatoes, lemon juice, wine, or vinegar until beans are almost tender as they delay softening.
