New food labels from the Food and Drug Administration will inform consumers about added sugars and nutrients. Food4Patriots officials suggest that people make sure their emergency food stockpile consists of healthy and long-lasting foods
NASHVILLE, TN / ACCESSWIRE / May 25, 2016 / The Food and Drug Administration recently rolled out its new food labels, which are easier to read than previous labels and which provide additional details regarding the sugars present in food, according to NBC News. Officials at Food4Patriots, who agree that consumers should know exactly what they are buying, recommend purchasing nutritious food with a long shelf life in order to be prepared for emergencies.
"It's a great idea that people understand exactly how much sugar, salt and fat they are consuming, and hopefully this will lead to healthier diets for Americans," said Allen Baler, Partner at Nashville, Tenn.-based 4Patriots LLC.
"But not enough attention is being paid to what people are going to eat next time a disaster in their area causes stores to run out of food and the food supply chain to be disrupted. The answer is to stockpile long-lasting emergency food that will be ready and waiting next time it is needed."
Most manufacturers will be required to use the new labels by mid-2018. New nutrients that also must be declared on the labels include Vitamin D, which aids in bone development, and potassium, which is helpful in controlling blood pressure.
The 72-hour, one-week, four-week, three-month and one-year emergency food kits from Food4Patriots have shelf lives of up to 25 years, so it's not necessary to periodically rotate stockpiles.
The food in these kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires only boiling water. It's contained in easy-to-store, space-age Mylar pouches - which keep out air, moisture and light - and tucked inside tough, stackable totes that are discreet and store anywhere - basement, attic, garage, shed, cabin or even an RV.
Food4Patriots provides emergency food products that are shelf-stable for 25 years. Food4Patriots survival food kits are made with food grown, harvested and packaged in the United States, and all of the meals are made without any genetically-modified products, preservatives or fillers. The kits are available in 72-hour, one-week, four-week, three-month and one-year supplies.
