No, but I have dealt with beprepared.com for many years and they have always been reliable and have dealt with any problems in a fair way.

They have monthly specials that I usually take advantage of.

Also, in regards to "efoodsdirect", I don't know if I accept the claim that "dehydrated" is better than "freeze-dried", mainly because freeze-dried is flash-frozen, retaining more flavor. Maybe it's one company's way of saying "we can't get any freeze-dried foods, so we will hype dehydrated instead?

I notice that efoodsdirect uses cans, just like Mountain House, et al and I will have to say, they are NOT rust proof. Don't leave the cans and/or cases where they will get we or get a lot of moisture because the seams will rust out fairly quickly.

I gotta a years supply about 6 months ago and was very pleased. The samples that they sent with my order actually tasted better than I expected them too.

Failing to plan, is planning to fail...

Nice. I'm thinking of buying some from them. I'm very skeptical though and want to make sure that I'm not being swindled.

From what I can tell so far, everything seem legit i.e. no gimmicks, complaints from BBB, etc.

Actually a buddy bought some and was happy with his too. It is kinda pricey though.

I buy from several sellers and have appreciated all of them. Nary a dud in the bunch.

http://www.beprepared.com
"Emergency Essentials"
(I use their Provident Pantry name brand for meats, veggies, fruits, but I don't buy the prepared mixes by Mountain House)

http://www.honeyvillegrain.com
"Honeyville Grain"
(I use the staples, fruits, veggies, and meats, but I don't buy mixes)

http://www.shelfreliance.com
"Shelf Reliance"
(their THRIVE brand...again, I don't buy mixes)

All three have newsletters and keep subscribers updated on specials and sales.

THRIVE has a "Q" that lets ya buy a set amount every month. I haven't gotten into that because I never know how much extra $$ I'll have each month to put into long-term storage. Others swear by the "Q."

All of them sell packages, of course. I do NOT buy "year supply" packages because they have TVP and I try avoid soy products where possible.

Also, I don't buy "mixes," etc., because I prefer to cook my own stuff. I don't live in an earthquake, flood, or hurricane zone, so I don't intend to "bug-out;" I will have the luxury of choosing my ingredients from my own pantry.

It's being flogged by George Noory on Coast TO Coast AM.

Frankly, you can do better by shopping around.

There are at least 2 main suppliers of freeze dried foods.

1) Thrive.

http://www.shelfreliance.com/

They sell a good product in #10 cans.

Costco often carries this company in large packages and in food group packages:

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.asp...lang=en-US

2) Mountain House

http://www.mountainhouse.com/

They make prepared foods that are really very good.
More expensive than purchasing raw dehydrated foods, but they have a nice variety of prepared meals.

The rest are camping food suppliers:

http://www.richmoor.com/

Richmoor makes tasty stuff. Tends to be cheaper in price than others.

Harvest Foodworks

http://www.harvestfoodworks.com/index.cfm

Prepared foods for camping. Quite good. Website often has errors though, just try reloading.

Backpackers Pantry

http://www.backpackerspantry.com/

Good prepared foods at reasonable prices.

I'd suggest you go to a local camping supply store and get a whole day's food: breakfast, beverages, lunch, snacks, dinner and desert. You'' find what you like.

Most makers use a mix of vegan products (tvp or textured vegetable protein - aka soy) and real meat. The real meat stuff is delicious.

I've cooked with my Thrive products.

Mostly stews, soups and sauces.

One thing I'dlike to know is how to saute and brown the veggies.

If you rehydrate, all you do is cook out the water. I'd like to try and make onion soup with the dehydrated veg, but how to you do it?

Should you fry and brown the dry ingredients in oil then rehydrate in soup sock like Rice a Roni?

Any advice?

I think a friend of mine is working for efoods now...when I get a chance, I'll ask him if he can get any good deals other than what they offer on line.....I, personally, bought bulk food from Honeyvillegrains.com since the retail store is up the road from me....if anyone is in the SOCAL area....do not buy on line from Honeyville....it's cheaper at the retail store!
