For two of the three months I have ordered, they have shipped me substituted items, and I quote here from the letter that arrives with my order:.
Because of this, we may have had to substitute some items which you ordered that were out of stock with others of comparable value. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding in this matter. That recent letter states that this is a temporary problem. Consumers who are tired of having their meals substituted should stretch their ConsumerAffairs.

We do sell bagged loose-packed beans, flour and grains, which if intended for long-term storage, need to be repackaged into airtight containers we also recommend using oxygen absorbers and if in buckets, mylar bags. Oxygen can be removed from the food storage container, resulting in the food lasting much longer than normal. Oxygen, naturally found in air will oxidize many food compounds. There are a couple of techniques used to remove oxygen from food containers:.
An air tight seal on the food storage container is a must. All of our food is packed in air tight, sealable food grade cans or buckets with gasket lids except for items ordered in bags or boxes with an appropriately sized oxygen absorber. Some foods are available in Mylar pouches which are airtight if left unopened.
Maximum shelf life is achieved best with either cans or buckets. Boxed or bagged items can be consumed immediately or repackaged into food grade airtight containers. To ensure maximum shelf life, store your food storage in a cool, dark location out of direct sunlight.
Avoid direct contact with concrete floors by elevating your cans or buckets off the floor with pallets or wood boards. High humidity evironments will affect opened containers, but will have no affect on factory sealed air-tight containers. Barometric pressure can dent or - in the case of severe barometric pressure changes altitude, hurricanes, etc.
This is usually a "good sign", since it indicates a tight seal on the gasket lid. Generally bucket dents only occur with people who live at very low elevations near sea level. The lower in elevation you are, the more atmospheric pressure there is, consequently the buckets can dent.
If these are SP buckets the food is in a sealed mylar bag inside and you want to remove the dents, you can crack the lid open and allow in some air, but this is not always necessary or generally recommended.
Dents can be ignored unless they are problematic and threaten the integrity of the bucket. In the case of severe dents the lids can be removed on SP buckets products with mylar bags and the sides pushed out and the lid replaced.
Do not do this on RB ribbed buckets as they do not have a mylar bag inside unless you replace the oxygen absorber after pushing out the dent. We always recommend the SP buckets over the RB buckets since the mylar bag provides an extra layer of protection.
Customers are responsible for making periodic inspections of their food storage and ensuring proper storage conditions. Below is a chart to help you determine the shelf life of food stored in air tight containers at an optimum temperature of 60 degrees cooler, colder temperatures are best. All of the following products will store proportionally longer at cooler temperatures if kept at lower storage temperatures.
Higher storage temperatures will decrease shelf life. Shelf life beyond these figures decrease in nutritional quality and taste.
All foods should be checked prior to consumption for staleness, bad odor, or obvious signs of deterioration. The above table represents average shelf life for these products and is not a guarantee. Shelf life estimates are based on industry studies from sources deemed reputable.
Since individual storage practices and conditions will vary, Food Assets and the canneries must disclaim any liability or warranty for particular results. There are active enzymes in leaven, which create carbon dioxide gas, the same gas used in food storage dry ice method. The gas is harmless to food. Leaven by itself has a 2 year shelf life see Yeast above. Freeze drying is the most effective way to remove water from food. Freeze-drying also known as lyophilization or cryodesiccation is a dehydration process typically used to preserve food and make it more convenient for transport and storage.
Freeze-drying works by freezing the food and then reducing the surrounding pressure in a vaccuum and adding just enough heat to allow the frozen water in the food to sublime directly from the solid phase to the gas phase.
If freeze-dried food is then sealed in osmosis proof containers or mylar pouches to prevent the reabsorption of moisture, the food may be stored at room temperature without refrigeration, and be protected against spoilage for many years. Preservation is possible because the greatly reduced water content inhibits the action of microorganisms and enzymes that would normally spoil or degrade the food.
Freeze-drying also causes less damage to the food than other dehydration methods that employ the use of higher temperatures. Freeze-drying does not usually cause shrinkage or toughening of the material being dried. In addition, flavors, smells and nutritional value generally remain unchanged, making the process popular for preserving food.
For optimal shelf life it is best to store the products in a cool, dry environment.
