Why choose Dry Pouch Meals against Wet Pouch?
Tens of thousands of Britain's professional & amateur sports- and outdoors- men & women (and dogs!) prefer to use dehydrated or freeze-dried meals (dry meals) during their outdoor activities rather than wet or boil-in-the-bag meals. There are many reasons for selecting dry meals over wet:
Make Your Choice - Facts about Food on the Move Dehydrated Meals
- ●Lightweight - 110 to 135g vs. 325 to 500g for equivalent 'wet' meal
- ●Less likely to burst - vacuum packed and sealed in a robust, long-life bag. Can be thrown into pack and safely taken to altitude without bursting
- ●Quick to cook - just boil the required amount of water, add to pouch, reseal and wait to rehydrate. You can have a quick brew whilst you're waiting - unlike the guy who is still cooking his 'wet' meal
- ●Uses no more water than a 'wet' meal during cooking - you still need to put at least 300-500ml of water in your pan to cook a 'wet' meal, which is more than enough for a dehydrated meal
- ●Uses a lot less fuel - you don't have to keep your water boiling so only use about a third the fuel of a 'wet' meal
- ●Uses less space in your pack - Packages are typically ½ to ¾ the size of a 'wet' pack
- ●Easier to store - less weight and smaller physical pack size means if you need to store our meals in bulk they'll take up a lot less space than the equivalent 'wet' meal
Our Food on the Move meal pouches make use of only freeze-dried and carefully dehydrated ingredients, resulting in a meal that retains all the flavour and nutritional value of the original hydrated meal yet weighs as little as a quarter of the equivalent boil-in-the-bag meal; an important factor if you have to carry several days supplies.
