Recon By Fire LLC proudly presents the 24 hour food ration. Ask any soldier what can make or break a field op, and one of the overwhelming answers will be chow. These freeze-dried rations boast a 25 year shelf life making them perfect for emergency preparedness. Lightweight and space saving, these rations are the downfall of the dreaded MRE. Food components are freeze-dried in an uncooked state, cold packed into individual Mylar bags, voided of oxygen by absorbent packets ready at anytime to be opened, re-hydrated, combined with the included flavorings and spices, and cooked to your liking just as if you went to the grocery store and picked it up that day. The freeze-drying process removes the water from foods without destroying the cells, so once re-hydrated, the food has retained all of the flavor, and upwards of 98% of its original nutrition. The 24 hour rations deliver a minimum of 3000 calories, or 1.5x the daily recommended caloric intake giving you the energy to burn on long missions or laborious tasks. Being in excess of the daily recommended values, the rations will also sustain 2 people for 24 hours, or 1 person for 48 hours in an emergency situation with minimal activity such as quarantine or "bugging in." Having the nutritional value of 3 standard MREs, you would expect the 24 hour ration to be equivalent in weight and size, however the RBF 24 hour ration provides 3x the food as a single MRE at 1/3 of the weight by volume. As you know, ounces make pounds, and while rucking these rations to your objective you will feel the weight reduction. After execution don't rip open an MRE for the same old SOS; Open a Recon By Fire 24 hour ration and grill NY strip steak over chicken flavored rice, seasoned potatoes, and pound a 40g protein shake with your squad. With these premium food rations we guarantee you will thrive, not merely survive. Law team says: "Currently available for purchase in West Virginia only while we gain national licensing.
