Our partner, Legacy Premium has just announced improvements to the way their freeze-dried emergency meals are packaged. As you know, Legacy Premium food is already protected from light, oxygen, and moisture through a sophisticated manufacturing and packaging process using freeze drying, dehydration and nitrogen flushed mylar pouches. Because oxygen removal is so vitally important to ensuring the extended shelf life of freeze-dried and dehydrated food, Legacy Premium has decided to add oxygen absorbers to each pouch of food, further reducing residual oxygen levels and adding another layer of security for consumers.
Legacy Premium is proud to be the first to incorporate oxygen absorbers in the packaging of pre-made emergency meal pouches, and with this development have achieved the lowest oxygen content on the market! Test results from the University of Minnesota confirm the effectiveness of this packaging change, reporting average oxygen content at a very low .47%. This is important because over time, excess residual oxygen can decrease the nutritional value of food and increase the potential for spoilage.
Legacy Premium founder Phillip Cox believes the change will set a new standard for the industry. He said, “We want to give our customers the best value and nutrition possible, and so for this reason, we have invested our efforts into creating this new packaging method for every single pouch of food. We are proud to be at the forefront of this new packaging standard.”
As always, Legacy Premium will continue to provide you with the best taste, best value, and highest quality nutrition in the freeze-dried food industry. And now you can brag to your friends about its low residual oxygen content too!
