The eFoods Direct 1-Year Food Supply is a solid food storage investment with a good variety of food that won’t take up too much space in your house. This is how we scored the eFoods Direct 1-Year Food Supply:
Most of the food is dehydrated, which doesn’t necessarily mean the taste is bad. Rather, it means this package does not have any of the traditional freeze-dried entrees that contain real meat and cheeses. The variety is excellent, and efoods did a good job of getting a balanced menu.
Price per calorie
The calories per dollar of the efoods Direct 1 Year Food Supply package was solid at 193. This puts this package squarely in the middle tier of the ones we have reviewed.
In ideal, cool conditions this package could last 20 years. Because it is not sealed in a #10 can its life expectancy is not as great. However, efoods recommends to use the product within 15 years.
It only takes boiling water and 10 minutes to get this food ready to eat. 10 minutes is about as fast as it gets when fully preparing dehydrated or freeze-dried meals. Also, all of the meals are ready-to-eat meaning you don’t have to combine ingredients or cook items to actually get a meal.
It’s tough to beat this package when it comes to efficient use of space. The entire supply comes sealed in mylar pouches in eight heavy duty totes. This is the best use of space we have seen in the industry.
