5 Best Vegan Emergency Food Kit in 2022

Hey fellow vegan prepper, are you are looking for a comprehensive review on vegan emergency food kits available in the market? If so, you are at the right place. Choosing the right survival food kit could be a daunting task to some because there is a multitude of factors that need to be considered.

First and foremost, we need to consider the nutritional content of vegan survival food. Food that contains dietary fiber, vitamins and calcium are a great energy sources and it helps repair and build cells and tissues in our body. Meanwhile, selecting food that has high amount of sodium and sugar can be detrimental to our health.   

Next, it is also important for us to select great tasting vegan food kit. The last thing we want during a survival situation is to be faced with terrible tasting food. I would recommend spending a little extra to get high quality ingredients so that you enjoy the best of both high nutrients and great tasting product. Alternatively, you can opt to add seasonings on your vegan meal to enhance the taste.

Third, understanding the shelf life or how long we can keep your vegan food kit is critical. If the vegan emergency food is unable to last more than 5 years, it is not recommended to be kept as a long-term food storage. Knowing the shelf life of the item can help you prepare early and replace expiring vegan emergency food so you can consume the food kit without worries during emergency.

Keeping these 3 main criteria: nutrition, taste and shelf life in mind, let us look at the top 5 vegan emergency food that we have picked.

Why Should I get a Vegan Emergency Food Kit

An emergency can happen anytime such as hurricanes, tornadoes, landslides and forest fires. Imagine being in this situation but you are unprepared, the consequences would be disastrous and might even result in death. Remembering the survival rule of 3, which is you can only survive 3 minutes without air, 3 hours in a harsh environment (extreme heat or cold), 3 days without drinkable water and 3 weeks without food. Thus, preparing for the unthinkable would be prudent to ensure our survival as well as our loved ones.

Once you have the basic emergency survival materials covered such as a mylar blanket for heat, radio for signal, medical supplies and access to clean water. It is also equally important to nourish your body with sufficient calories and nutrients allowing you to travel to a safe haven.

Emergency experts would usually recommend you to prepare 2 weeks worth of survival food, however, I personally think that it is more tactical to have a minimum of 30-day survival food kit for yourself and your family members because when a pandemic strikes, emergency food supplies would go out of stock really fast.
