Looking a tasty way to add essential nutrients like vitamin C to your emergency food storage? Freeze-Dried Peas are a perfect solution!
Peas are a pantry staple, and highly versatile. They are a great source of plant based proteins and iron, and high in fibre meaning that they will keep you full for longer. They are also high in various minerals and nutrients such as potassium, calcium, and vitamin C. In one ounce of freeze-dried peas, you will get 11% of the recommended daily dietary fibre along with 8% Vitamin A, 10% iron, and 2% calcium! One cup of peas gives you 58mgs of Vitamin C, and 7.9 grams of fibre and 16% of your daily protein! This makes them a valuable addition to your emergency stockpiles. Use them in recipes ranging from risotto to mushy peas or in soups and rice dishes! Or toss them in some spices and snack on them dry by the handful (or in trail mix!)
The freeze-drying process removes moisture, but none of the nutrients or flavour from your peas! They retain the same great quality without any added nutrients or preservatives but gain a long-term shelf life. With an amazing 30 year shelf life* these peas will be ready whenever an emergency might take place, and they’re great as a snack or side dish too! Once opened they will last for a full year so you don’t need to worry about eating them all at once. If you’re not sure what to make with these, the can comes with two handy recipes on the back to inspire you.
