Meals Ready to Eat - MREs
What is an MRE?
Meals Ready to Eat – MREs – were initially created to feed soldiers in the field and on the move. They are fully-cooked kits of great tasting and hearty meals. MREs are good for immediate food consumption. When an emergency happens you often have little or no cooking abilities. Meals Ready to Eat are complete meals and have a 5 year shelf life. They come with a flameless ration meal heater that only takes a few ounces of water to activate. You have a hot meal in minutes. Great for hunting, camping, emergency response, in disaster zones, and for organizational command centres.
Do I Need Potable Water to Heat an MRE?
The food inside an MRE is well sealed in specially designed, robust packaging, ensuring that the included flameless meal heater does not touch the food. As a result, you can use any water you have to hand, including snow, and it does not need to be drinking water. Please note that potable water is required for the drink mixes.
