Camping Food FAQs
How is dehydrated food made?
Dehydrated meals are prepared with ingredients processed in a food dehydrator. Large quantities of fruits, nuts or vegetables can be placed on dehydrator trays where moisture content is then slowly removed. A Food dehydrator can extract moisture from a wide range of foodstuffs without removing essential minerals and vitamins.
The drying process and drying times vary between ingredients that can include dried fruit, blueberries, dehydrated vegetables, mashed potatoes, risotto, apricots and even broccoli. Anaconda dehydrated meals are securely packed or vacuum sealed and ready to be enjoyed. While other campers head to the expensive grocery store, you can conveniently rehydrate your dehydrated meals, veggies, risotto, casseroles or other dehydrated food, then sit back and enjoy the serenity.
What is the flameless heater pack in the camp food range?
The flameless heater pack will allow you to enjoy a hot meal without the hassle of burners or billies. You simply place your favourite Back Country Cuisine meal pouch, prepared with cold water, between the inner bags of the heater pack. You add 50 ml of water to the heater pack to activate the heating process, fold down and secure the top with the clip provided, sit back and relax for about 20 minutes and then enjoy a piping hot meal. Heats two single serves or one double-serve Back Country Cuisine meal pouch. Can be used in total fire ban areas where exposed flame of any kind can pose risk. Bushfire safe, and only requires water, and a spoon!
How can I make sure my camp food stays hot?
In the Camp Food range you'll find a handy thermal pouch. The thermal pouch is the perfect winter hiking companion to keep your Back Country meals piping hot. Place your meal pouch, prepared with hot water, inside the thermal Pouch to ensure you retain maximum heat during the rehydration process, with the heat continuing through to your very last bite. The thermal pouch comes with a Sea to Summit Alphalight long-handled spoon. Just sit back and enjoy your hot meal, no matter what the outside temperature.
