Military Surplus Sourdough Bread
#10 Can (aka Gallon size can) 13 oz per can (10-13 slices) U.S. Government/Military Surplus 25+ year shelf life No Refrigeration Required October 2018 Production Date
This Freeze Dried Bread is current production and was manufactured in 2018 by a large military defense contractor. We just purchased a large lot of these direct from a Defense Reutilization Office (DRO) Source. Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of bids, our information is that these are purchased for Executive Branch use, not for our troops in the field.That usually means these go to underground bunkers for continuity of government use by strategic military leaders, congressional members and sometimes even white house staff or leadership.
Preparation: Either eat right out of the can or rehydrate and use like regular bread. To rehydrate the bread, just wet a slice in cold or lukewarm water, pat it dry with a towel, and let it sit for 30 minutes in a sealed container (zip lock bags work great). Then use as a side dish, make toast or use for sandwiches anywhere.
Once opened they will last:
- up to 1 year in a Zip Lock bag with refrigeration once opened but not re-hydrated
up to 60 days in a zip lock bag without refrigeration once opened, but not re-hydrated. up to 5 days in the fridge once they are re-hydrated
