How Long Can Food Last?

When it comes to food storage, the shelf-life of your food depends on a variety of factors, including the type of food, the way it's stored, and the environment in which it's stored. Here are some general guidelines for how long certain types of food can last:

  • Grains: Grains such as rice, wheat, and oats can last up to 10 years if stored properly. When stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, grains can retain their nutritional value and flavor for a long time.

  • Canned Foods: Canned foods can last up to 5 years or more if stored in a cool, dry place. However, the nutritional value and flavor of canned foods can start to degrade over time.

  • Dehydrated Foods: Dehydrated foods, such as jerky or dried fruit, can last up to 1 year when stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

  • Freeze-Dried Foods: Freeze-dried foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and meats, can last for up to 25 years when stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
