Food

What kind of packaging does Legacy Premium come in?
Legacy Premium Food Storage comes in six-serving Nitrogen flushed Mylar pouches with an Oxygen Absorber placed inside. With this unique process of double protection against residual oxygen levels, Legacy Premium pouches have way less than 2%, the bare minimum standard level of oxygen for long-term food storage. The pouches are then stored in stackable, heavy-duty , BPA-free polyethylene buckets that are perfect for storage. Each bucket has convenient handles or grips that makes it easy to transport and weighs less than 40 pounds. The buckets also provide protection from water damage and rodents.Back to Top
Do you offer any vegetarian products?
Most of the meals on this site are vegetarian friendly, the only exception being our selection of freeze dried meats. Legacy Premium decided to eliminate meats from their meal offerings in order to maintain nutritional value for longer periods of time while being stored.  Real meat contains fatty oils and amino acids, which break down over time and can lead to loss of taste and nutrition. So not only are our meals vegetarian friendly, but they taste great and will last for years to come without the need to rotate them.Back to Top
How much water do I need for a meal?
On average you will need one-cup water per serving. Although not mandatory, hot or boiling water is recommended for preparation.Back to Top
What is the best way to store freeze-dried food?
Like any type of food storage, freeze dried food is best preserved when stored in a cool, dark place that maintains a fairly consistent temperature.Back to Top
How long can Legacy Premium meals be stored?
When kept in optimum conditions as outlined above, freeze dried food can be stored safely and securely up to 25 years with no need for rotation.Back to Top
What is the right amount of food storage to purchase?
Start by creating a food storage plan based on the needs of your family, which will vary depending on the level of preparedness you’re looking to obtain. Since the requirements of each household are different, utilize our Food Storage Calculator along with your plan to help you identify the best options.Back to Top
