Nitro-Pak – Platinum 1-Year Food Supply

Nitro-Pak Platinum Food Reserve Unit
Platinum Food Reserve Unit packaged

The Nitro-Pak Platinum 1-Year Food Supply received one of the highest food storage ratings because of its quality across all the categories. Only the Nitro-Pak Ultimate Pak received higher ratings.

Product Description

The price to value ratio of this package is very, very good. You can be secure knowing your food storage is protected, will last 30 years, and will provide you enough calories to survive. This is how we scored the Nitro-Pak Platinum 1-Year Food Supply (formerly known as the Platinum Food Reserve Unit):

Price per calorie

The calories per dollar score is a surprisingly good 215. One would expect this to be much lower considering the quality of the food. So it’s a really good deal. (The price listed on the retailer’s website is subject to change at any time without notice).


A good chunk of this package is Mountain House premium freeze-dried food. The rest of the food comes from Nitro-Pak or their other in-house label Backpacker’s Pantry. This is as good as it gets, and we give the food a very high taste rating.


All of this emergency food comes in #10 cans. Although it’s ideal for keeping out unwanted pests, it doesn’t provide the best use of space. Also, once you have opened a can you only have about a week (depending on humidity) to use it all up. Everything comes in 168 # 10 size cans packed in 28 cases.

Shelf Life

You simply can’t get better shelf life. All of the foods containing animal products have been freeze dried, which gives them the highest shelf life possible. A few of the dehydrated items have 15-year shelf lives, but the feeze-dried components will last 30 years before the nutritional content really starts to break down.

Prep Time

You can technically eat it dry, but it only takes boiling water and 10-15 minutes to get this food ready to eat. Although some emergency foods can be prepared slightly quicker, 10-15 minutes isn’t too long to wait. Also, almost all of the food is ready-to-eat entrees so there isn’t much preparation time required.
