Total Calories: Always look at the total calories provided instead of the number of servings to compare the true value of a food storage purchase.
REMEMBER, LEGACY HAS THE LOWEST COST PER POUND OF EMERGENCY FOOD! Did you know that there are no government standards regarding serving size? A “serving size” is whatever the manufacturer wants it to be. Emergency food manufacturers have discovered that they can raise prices... not by raising prices… but by CUTTING SERVING SIZES. When you compare Legacy with ANY competitor, you’ll quickly discover our per pound prices are half what theirs are.
Total Package Weight: This is another good indicator of the actual food quality and quantity offered in a package. Sugary items that are high in calories and not very nutritious weigh much less than real food!
Average Calories per Serving: Surprise! Not all serving sizes are created equal. Legacy Premium's serving sizes are 30-60% larger than leading competitors'.
Cost per 2,000 Calories: This number represents your actual cost per day, if you were to consume 2,000 calories. Knowing this measurement is a great way to understand how much food you are getting for your hard earned dollar.
Gluten Free Options Available: Over half of our meals are gluten free. Our facility operators are experts on cross contamination control and completely sterilize all equipment before producing any of our gluten free lines. Click here to see gluten free options.
Total of 2,000 Calorie Days: Measures how many days this package will actually last you if you consume 2,000 calories per day.
Shelf Life: Shelf life is almost solely determined by residual oxygen levels inside the food packaging. All of our food is nitrogen flushed, oxygen absorbed, and stored in sunlight resistant mylar pouches. Oxygen levels are maintained well below the 2% standard to ensure that your food retains a rich flavor profile and high nutritional values for up to 25 years.
Non-GMO: Legacy Premium has gone to extensive lengths to ensure that every ingredient used in their long term emergency food storage is Non-GMO. We have certified documentation from each and every ingredient provider that proves they meet the certification standards and requirements to be considered Non-GMO.
No MSG or Autolyzed Yeast Extract added: Legacy Premium foods are 100% free of added MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) and AYE (Autolyzed Yeast Extract). While some MSG exists naturally in many ingredients, several studies indicate a multitude of health issues associated with its consumption as an added "flavor enhancer." Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has deemed MSG generally safe to use, we have chosen to keep unnatural MSG out of our foods.
No Artificial Flavors: Legacy Premium brand is 100% free of artificial flavors.
Nitrogen Flushed Mylar Pouches: Shelf life is almost solely determined by residual oxygen levels inside the food packaging. All of our food is nitrogen flushed, oxygen absorbed, and stored in sunlight resistant mylar pouches. Oxygen levels are maintained well below the 2% standard to ensure that your food retains a rich flavor profile and high nutritional values for up to 25 years.
Oxygen Absorbers in Every Pouch: Oxygen absorbers increase the shelf life and quality of stored food by limiting deterioration due to free oxygen in the packaging. Legacy Premium includes an oxygen absorber in every pouch of stored food. That is not true across the board.
Residual O2 Content: The industry standard oxygen level for stored food is 2% or lower. Ours averages 0.11%, which means your food lasts longer in our packaging.
Stackable Storage Buckets: Each of your meals is packaged in a mylar pouch, then stored safely inside one of our BPA-free, stackable storage containers. Although 5 gallon buckets are the traditional standard, we have opted for smaller, more manageable buckets that allow for easy stacking, easy moving, and easy opening.
FREE Shipping: We offer free shipping on every item, every day. No minimum purchase necessary.
Time to Ship: Your order ships from our warehouse in 2-5 business days, with many shipments being processed the same day as your order.
