Anyone planning to spend several days in the wild without any catering facilities in sight, must inevitably give his feeding some thought. Food packs are the perfect solution for those who do not wish to burden themselves with too much planning.
Food packs for trekking are matched exactly to daily nutritional requirements and contain all the necessary nutrients and enough energy. Outdoor food packs include all meals from breakfast through lunch to dinner. In addition, they contain such extras as coffee, cereal bars or mineral drinks. There is usually also a meatless option for vegetarians. An added benefit of trekking food is that it occupies little space, is very light and thus fits in every backpack.
Food packs: Practical to use and finely tuned
Preparing the trekking meals is extremely simple. Depending on the dish, pour hot or cold water over it and the meal is ready to eat. Food packs are often freeze-dried, therefore rehydrating them is sufficient - i.e. resupplying the water removed from them - thereby restoring them to their original state. The process has an additional benefit: Outdoor food packs have a very long shelf life. In some cases up to two years.
Trekking food packs are also adjusted to suit each travel destination. Hence trekking meals for cold regions contain higher nutritional value to compensate for energy loss through the body's heat production. The food packs for warm regions also contains more energy than the standard ration, because heat puts the body under stress, which must be counteracted.
