Where should I store my food?
A good rule of thumb is that your storable food is comfortable where you are. The worst enemy of storable foods is temperature fluctuation and inferior packaging that allows oxygen in. It is best to put your stores in a consistently cool, dry place. If your NuManna food is stored improperly the shelf life can be greatly diminished. A garage would be one of the worst places because of the temperature changes throughout the year. The easy stack buckets allow storage flexibility. A basement cold storage would be ideal. In your closet would work well. For maximum shelf life store at 55 degrees or cooler.
How much water do I need?
NuManna Foods uses about 1 cup of water per serving cooked. This will vary slightly among the different varieties. To help meet your water demands we offer PROPUR water filters that will allow you to have clean water in virtually any situation.
Why is GMO and No-Gluten so important?
No Gluten is not a choice for everybody. Around 1% of the population is suffering from some level of Celiac disease. Gluten intolerance can turn an ordinary loaf of bread into a health emergency. NuManna is sensitive to dietary requirements. We have listened to our customers and developed packages with 100% No Wheat ingredients.
Genetically Modified food or GMO, short for Genetically Modified Organism, is rapidly becoming one of the most controversial topics in the food world. When scientists manipulate the DNA of existing food to create new strains the overall effect on Humans is up for debate. Protein synthesis is altered. Many studies have indicated serious reasons why we should be concerned about consuming GMOs. We at NuManna have tried to eliminate such risks from our diet. If we are reluctant to eat GMOs now, why would we want to eat them in the future? Or in an emergency? Why would we want to sell them to our customers? With valid studies showing that GMOs have degenerative effects on the animals that are tested why would anyone want to risk their health on Genetically Modified ingredients if they dont have to? With NuManna you at least have a choice about GMO Free food storage.
How do I prepare meals?
Follow the directions on the package. Start by boiling the water as directed in an appropriate place. Pay attention to the amount called for. Rip open the meal of your choice, remove the oxygen absorber and pour the contents in the boiling water. Follow directions instructing you to simmer or boil or stir often. In minutes your meal will be done.
Are there any other uses for food storage meals?
Well, pretty much anytime you would need quick, easy-to-fix meals. They are great for outdoor activities like camping, picnics, reunions, etc. We have seen our customers make these meals a part of their everyday life. Late for baseball practice? Food storage meals are a perfect choice.
NuManna packages are specifically chosen to be flexible and mix well with other bulk stores you may already have. Have extra rice storage? Cook the rice and mix it with the chili. Now your NuManna foods can easily be extended and your bland rice becomes part of an extremely flavorful meal. This is just one example.
How long will NuManna food last?
We have put NuManna Foods in 5mm, over-engineered bags. The bags are nitrogen flushed and have an oxygen absorber to preserve freshness. The ingredients are specifically chosen for taste, quality and longevity. Through testing and manufacturing comparisons we know our storable food has a true 25+ year shelf life. If you take reasonable storage measures your NuManna food will be there when you need ittomorrow or 30 years from now.
