TOTAL PREPARE MRE’s are powered by NXH™ Heating Technology. Tested and certified non-toxic, with no foul odor and safe to use in confined spaces. You can heat these meals by using a few ounces of any liquid, no stove needed! FEMA (US Federal Emergency Management Agency) has purchased millions of these types of meals because they are perfect for emergency preparedness in case of natural disaster such as floods, power failures and anytime you can’t get into the grocery store. They are also ideal for hunting, fishing, and camping trips or for anyone who works in remote areas.

General Info

MREs are multi-course, shelf-stable, ready-to-eat meals developed for feeding soldiers in the field. They are very similar to Canadian IMPs (Individual Meal Pack) with a water-activated meal heater included.

Each meal comes ready to eat straight from the package. They’re rugged, waterproof, and easy to open so you can take them anywhere. Each meal pack provides an average of over 1,230 calories of US military grade food, with everything from drink mixes, to stews, pastas, and more. Military specifications are among the highest standards in the market, and each TOTAL PREPARE MRE meets or exceeds these requirements. Each pouch comes with everything you need to eat the meal, cutlery and condiments included!

XMRE components


Each meal pouch includes:

  • Main course (listed below)
  • 3-4 Side components (side, bread item, spread, snack, dessert)
  • Beverage mix
  • Mini Tootsie Rolls
  • High power, safe to use, flameless meal heater
  • Accessory Pack: spoon, napkin, and condiment kit (salt pepper, tea, creamer, sugar).
Each TOTAL PREPARE MRE comes with 1-2 each of 8 menus. The current cases include:

Flameless Meal Heater Specs

A proprietary blend of non-toxic chemicals inside a non-woven fabric pad, sealed with ultrasonic sealing technology and individually wrapped in foil, contained inside a 280 x 180mm multilayered constructed bag with 95mm gusset including a high heat resistant open zipper, a steam vent and instructions.

APPROXIMATE TOTAL FRH WEIGHT: 68g including outer printed bag.

HEAT GENERATION: Following the addition of any non-flammable liquid 90/150mls, the chemical mixture will create an exothermic reaction that will generate heat and steam to raise the internal temperature to up to 220 °F with a duration of 10-15 minutes depending on altitude and temperature.

SHELF LIFE: Minimum five years from production date if stored under 21°C. Upper limit not known if bag remains sealed.

ADVANTAGES: Stand alone, odorless, safe to use in confined and close spaces, non-flammable, magnesium-free.


Every case and meal pouch of TOTAL PREPARE MRE’s have the pack date (lot number) embossed on the outside. The pouches are high-density, water and tamper proof bags that help give the contents their extended shelf life. Like military MREs the TOTAL PREPARE MRE meals have up to a 5 year shelf life if stored in temperatures up to 21° C. Unlike other MREs they still have a guaranteed 3 year lifespan between 22-27° C.

You can also freeze a TOTAL PREPARE MRE pouch if necessary. It won’t damage the food inside! Best to avoid repeated re-freezing however as that can increase the chance that the pouch lamination will fail (by a fraction of a percent, but still.) For a comprehensive account of storage and shelf life as it relates to the TOTAL PREPARE MRE’S and XMRE’s, please see this letter from the manufacturer.

TOTAL PREPARE MREs have a 5 digit date code Eg: 20136 = the 136th day of 2020 (May 25th)
