Backpacking Food

Choose from freeze-dried pouches or ambient meal pouches. The freeze dried meals have been cooked and then freeze dried, so require you to add water to rehydrate. You can use hot water (quicker) or cold water to re-hydrate these meals. They have great calorie to weight ratio – an average of 5kcal per gram on the main meals - so ideal for when you want to minimise weight for expeditions. Ambient meals (ready-to-eat) have been pre-cooked, you can eat them hot or cold. Eat them directly from the bag, heat the whole bag in water or pour them out into a pan and heat.

Need to boil water for freeze-dried food? See our food preparation section.
