Our meals are durable and ready for just about any sort of adventure, so storing them is a breeze - as it should be. Here are a few suggestions for properly storing your OMEALS so they are ready for any adventure that you have your eyes set on:
OMEALS should be always be stored at a temperature of 80 degrees F or less. Making sure that they are in a cool spot ensures that the food stays fresh and your heating element in tact. When keeping your unopened OMEALS in a place for long periods of time, this is by far the bets practice. That being said, OMEALS should always be kept away from fire since the bag and the elements inside will be damaged if exposed to fire and can burn. It is vital that you ensure proper caution to not have the meals interact with fire in any way. Remember, you won’t even need fire or any sort of heater to cook or heat our meals in the first place! Our self heating element will do all of that for you.
Next, OMEALS should be stored in a cool & dry place to ensure the best quality and the most productive re-heating. With your meals being kept in a cool & dry environment, you should have no trouble with the 5 year shelf life. Even though you want to keep them dry while stirring for extended periods of time, you will not have to worry if you do accidentally splash, dunk, or wet your OMEALS bags because they are created to be waterproof. You won’t have to worry about keeping them in a separate dry bag, especially if you enjoy heating and eating your meals on a boat or kayak!
We hope that these tips can help you make a more informed decision about where to keep your OMEALS stash & that you can see just how user friendly our product really is. Happy Adventuring!
