By Adelia Ladson

What Is Ready Hour?

We’re always looking for the newest, top brands on the market so that we can offer you only the best in survival gear. Our newest find, Ready Hour Emergency Food, is a brand that will really fit your emergency food needs. Grown and packaged in Salt Lake City, Utah, Ready Hour has a long history of providing calorie-rich and delicious nourishment that you can count on if a national or a natural disaster occurs. Ready Hour believes that long-term survival food shouldn’t break the bank, so they maintain affordable pricing across their products. Ready Hour food products have an extended shelf-life from 10 years up to 30 years, depending on the type of food, and require no refrigeration. We carry several kinds of these emergency food products to give you a wide variety of options to choose from.

Why Do I Need Emergency Food?

Since the future isn’t guaranteed, it’s essential to prepare, to the best of your ability, as much as you can for an event that may upset, either permanently or temporarily, your way of life. There are many things to consider, to prepare you and your family for an emergency, but one of the most important things to consider is food. Can you feed your family independent of outside sources like grocery stores that most likely won’t be a reliable food source if something happens? Whether it’s flood, fire or civil unrest, your food sources are going to be impacted. Now is the time to stock provisions to ensure that you can feed your family. As Ready Hour says, “Be ready for tomorrow. Today.”

#10 Canned Food Staples

When you’re stocking and organizing your stock of emergency food, the key is efficiency of storage. Ready Hour #10 cans are made of steel, are waterproof and rodent proof, and store easily on a shelf or in a closet. Store them in a cool, dry location where temperatures stay between 55 and 75 degrees for optimal longevity. I’ve chosen a few of the staples that are absolutely necessary to have a completely stocked emergency food pantry.

Honey Powder

Honey is a versatile staple to have because not only is it an incredibly delicious topping and sugar substitute in recipes, but it has antibacterial properties that can be used on minor cuts if necessary. Ready Hour Honey Powder mixes to the natural consistency of honey and the powder is made to store long-term, which is why it remains the perfect consistency. There are 340 total servings in the can, it lasts up to 30 years unopened and one year once the can is opened.

Butter Powder

During extreme times of crisis and under emergency conditions, you can certainly bet that butter will tend to become a valuable commodity. Ready Hour Butter Powder has a total of 204 servings in the can, giving you 7,140 calories, and has a 10-year shelf-life. You might also consider all the uses of butter powder even when there’s not an emergency. Keep it around the kitchen as a staple item that stores for many years. When you’re outdoors and need to butter your food, you won’t have to worry about the butter melting.

Peanut Butter Powder

Our bodies need two essential ingredients to help us survive: water and protein. Protein is not produced naturally, so we have to get it from our food supply and, most importantly, we need to have a reliable source of it. Peanut Butter Powder is a great source of protein, vitamin E, and manganese and is also an excellent source of fiber and energy. Simply put, peanut butter powder can positively fit into your healthy eating plan and is a necessity in your emergency food storage plan. The powder mixes into a creamy peanut butter spread that gives you 65 servings of a nutritious, tasty, nutty delight that can top your favorite bread or eaten with fruit as a snack.

Whole Egg Powder

If meat is in short supply, eggs are always another high-protein alternative to keep you healthy and strong. These freeze-dried eggs are easy to prepare quickly with an equal warm water to powder ratio for the number of eggs wanted. There are 5,760 calories total in the Whole Egg Powder can, equaling 72 eggs, and it has a 10-year shelf-life. Whether you’re in a crisis situation and there’s no access to grocery stores, or you’re camping and want a quick and easy breakfast, these delicious, powdered eggs are the way to go!

Powdered Whey Milk

You can see that there’s definitely a theme to these last few items on this list of canned staples. Protein, protein, protein. Ready Hour understands the fact that during a crisis, the body needs it to sustain maximum performance and their Powdered Whey Milk was made specifically with that in mind. It provides you with 93 servings and 6,510 calories total, perfect for your emergency food stock, with a 20-year shelf-life, or even to mix-up and use in your daily diet. Please note that due to whey being a by-product of the cheese making process, it does contain lactose.

Case Packs

The Ready Hour Case Pack allows you to buy in large quantities, without wasting what you don’t use right away. The meals will store up to 25 years unopened and one year once you’ve opened the package. Below are two of our most popular Ready Hour Case Packs.

Freeze-Dried Beef

Freeze-Dried Beef requires no refrigeration and is a must-have for your emergency food stock. Since the beef is immediately frozen during the freeze-dried process, the vitamins and minerals stay packed inside of the package, and the fresh taste is maintained. The case pack comes with six pouches of freeze-dried beef, which contain four servings each. This helps you maintain the shelf-life of your beef until you’re ready to cook it. Add the delicious beef to soups and stews, make sandwiches with it, meat pies or just eat it on its own for some added protein. The possibilities are endless!


Have the convenience of a Spaghetti meal on hand when you need it. Delicious tomato sauce with al dente noodles makes this the perfect dinner in the event of an emergency, or any time you want a quick and easy meal. Top with tasty parmesan and serve with garlic bread for a complete family meal. It’s easy to prepare by whisking the contents of one pouch into seven cups of water, bringing it to a boil, reducing heat to medium and cooking for 15 to 20 minutes. Then, remove it from the heat and let it stand for 5 to six minutes. Voila! Instant delicious spaghetti meal! There are 32 servings total in this case pack, four packages means eight meals are in each package.
