Expedition Foods’ delicious light-weight meals provide the perfect nutrition for a wide range of outdoor pursuits. Freeze-drying food is the most successful method of preservation, making it taste better, look better, weigh less and last longer
Expedition Foods says:
Vegetables, black olives and lentils with pasta shells in a creamy herb sauce.
Preparation: Remove the oxygen absorber (sachet) from inside the pouch. Add 160ml of boiling water, stir the contents, and then close the bag and wait 5-8 minutes for the food to re-hydrate.
Cold water will suffice in an emergency, however the re-hydration time is much longer. The oxygen absorber helps maintain product freshness and is non toxic. Do not eat.
Expedition Foods meals have a long shelf life of up to 5 years.
Expedition Foods offers a good variety of main meals and desserts and a choice of serving sizes with their High Energy (800+ kcal), Regular Serving (450 kcal) and Extreme Energy or Regular Serving for Two (1000 kcal) ranges.
Expedition Foods provides the perfect meal for everyone from extreme athletes to campers and hikers – in fact, anyone who desires great-tasting food on the go.

|8.5||CAIRNGORM TREK'S TASTE TEST - The Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta, like many of Expedition Foods meals, comes in either a 450cal or 800cal pack to suit a variety of activities and calorie requirements. This meal is a great vegetarian option that includes pasta shells, lots of olives, green beans and sweet corn to name a few ingredients. This variety of ingredients provides a great amount of texture something, which can often go missing when tucking into many other de-hydrated meals. Be careful when filling with water that the correct amount is measured as the sauce does become very thin if you overfill. We found that putting slightly under the required amount of water actually helped boost flavour. Unfortunately, Expedition Foods don't include a fill line within the packaging so using a pot or mug with measurements on certainly helps.|
