Quick and easy to prepare

The main meal is very easy to prepare in the field. Tear off the top of the bag at the indentation. Add warm water up to the level marker. Stir well, close the bag using the ziplock, and let the dish rest. The water amounts and resting time may vary from meal to meal. You will find more detailed instructions on each package. The snacks are eaten as is, and the drinks just require cold or warm water, depending on the drink.

Long shelf life

The main meal has a 7-year shelf life from the manufacturing date. Store at room temperature. An opened bag should be treated as a fresh product. Please eat the meal within 2 hours of adding water. The shelf-life of other products in the ration varies.

What is freeze-drying?

The main meal is made by freeze-drying, which is the most gentle way to remove water from food. Freeze-dried products retain their shape and structure relatively unchanged from fresh condition. They also absorb water again better than air-dried products and preserve more of their original taste and aroma. When vacuum-packed, they can last for a very long time, even without the use of preservatives.

Drytech has further developed the freeze-drying technology to retain the natural taste, aroma, appearance, consistency, and nutritional value even better.

Made by Drytech

Drytech AS was established in 1989 by founder Rolf Hansen, and it is located in Tromsø, Norway. They manufacture high-quality freeze-dried food in portion and bulk packages. The REAL product line is developed in cooperation with big military customers, and their best-known product line is REAL Turmat.

The company’s philosophy is that the food must have high nutritional values and taste as home-cooked as possible. Food safety is also paramount, and they follow the dietary recommendations given by The Norwegian Directorate of Health. The meals are prepared in Norway.
