If kept sealed in the original packaging, yes, freeze dried food is considered non-perishable. And for good reason: freeze dried food typically lasts longer than dried food, c…anned food and many dry goods. In fact, freeze dried meals and individual ingredients, from fruit and vegetables to chicken meat and ground beef, may last as long as 25 years when kept in original, unopened containers in a cool, dry location. Because they are non-perishable, freeze dried foods are an excellent option for long-term food storage, emergency preparedness, survival, and outdoors/ backpacking/ mountaineering purposes. Lightweight and devoid of the majority of their original water content, these meals take up much less room than their canned and frozen counterparts.
