The company offers real meat, vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes and staples that have the calories and nutrients essential to survival.

More About The Canned Vegetables
Emergency Essentials offers freeze-dried and dehydrated vegetables, grown and packaged in the USA, that look and taste as good as fresh vegetables. They can be eaten right out of the can or be rehydrated and added to recipes. All of the canned vegetables are stored in an easy-to-stack, #10 steel can that's pest and waterproof and has a shelf-life of up to 30 years. With delicious choices like tomato chunks, freeze dried spinach, and mixed stew vegetables, it's easy to supplement your emergency food supply with healthy, nutritious foods filled with high quality vitamins, minerals, and fiber to see you through any emergency.
To me, green beans are one of your most basic green vegetables for your supper table and a cornerstone of family meals. They're an excellent source of essential nutrients and Emergency Essentials assures that they're tasty. Use them as a side, in casseroles and in soups. They can be rehydrated with warm water in about five minutes, drained, heated and then served. The large can contains 19 total servings, offering 38 grams of protein and 475 total calories.
I love mushrooms and can't imagine not having them to cook and season recipes with. That won't happen because I have Emergency Essentials Mushroom Slices in my food storage pantry. These dehydrated slices can be used in your favorite pork, chicken and beef recipes, on pizzas and in soups and gravies. They retain much of their original flavor and texture after rehydration. There are 57 servings of the freeze-dried mushroom slices with a total of 285 calories in the large can.
Another green vegetable to add to your emergency food prep is good ole broccoli. You won't believe how fresh and crunchy Emergency Essentials freeze-dried broccoli is compared to fresh broccoli. Eat them as a side to add variety and color to your plate or use them in stir-fries, casseroles and soups. Brimming with essential vitamins and minerals, the freeze-dried broccoli, in its 20-serving can, also has 40 grams of protein.
Pinto beans have been a staple of many family's diets across the nation and in other countries. They are packed with iron, protein and fiber, making them an excellent addition to your emergency food. Once rehydrated, they can be used in casseroles, Mexican dishes, soups, salads and, of course, with rice. There are 53 servings with 477 grams of protein and 7,950 total calories in the large Emergency Essentials can.
Mixed Stew Vegetables
When the temperatures drop, I'm thinking about beef and vegetable stew. What I really like about Emergency Essentials mixed stew vegetables is that it has everything that I need to make it quickly and easily because all I have to do is season the vegetables and add the beef. Also, you're getting a variety of vegetables in one can that are perfect as a side dish, too. In each #10 steel can is 47 servings of a hearty mix of potatoes, cabbage, onions, carrots, celery, bell peppers and tomatoes with 94 grams of protein.
Another staple of most family's diet is potatoes, which provide fiber and, most importantly, carbohydrates for energy. The canned potato dices from Emergency Essentials can be used in anyway that you would use fresh potatoes in a recipe and are also delicious mashed or baked. There are a total of 22 servings in each can.
Sweet Whole Kernel Corn
You're not going to believe this but Emergency Essentials sweet kernel corn is actually a great-tasting snack right out of the can. Also, it's a healthy snack, giving you much-needed energy and vitamins A and C. Once rehydrated, the sweet whole kernel corn can be used in casseroles, soups and chowders or as a side dish. The large can has a total of 22 total servings.
