Honeyville's Ranchers Cut Freeze Dried Meat Combo is just what you need to maintain your intake of protein, calcium, zinc, and many more nutrients that a balanced diet requires. These are all essential to a healthy body, especially protein. Proteins are combinations of amino acids which are integral for building, repairing, and maintaining body tissue, synthesizing hormones and enzymes, and supplying energy. You’re able to use these freshly curated meats in combination with other dishes you may wish to assemble, such as tacos, meat pies, stew, and much more.
This meat is produced in a process where moisture is removed from the product using a very low temperature and a vacuum. Only about 3% moisture remains in the product at the time of packaging. The end product weight is reduced by over 90%, while the volume stays the same. This remarkable process concentrates the fresh taste, natural color, and texture of meat in its freeze dried state.
You would spend more money buying each can individually than you would purchasing a combo pack. Honeyville's meats are all made with 100% North American livestock and inspected by the USDA for wholesomeness. Honeyville Ranchers Cut Freeze Dried Meat Combo is an ideal product for long term food storage and emergency preparedness.

For a cold-climate off-grid family, FD meat provides a shelf-stable protein that won't freeze (like cans) in the winter, nor require power in the summer (like freezer). With that in mind, it's fairly decent value. All but the diced beef rehydrates easily in any temp water or just chucked in the pot with some extra water (usually the liquid from a can/jar of veg is enough if you're conserving H2O)Review by Jennine Wardle (Posted on 6/12/2016)
However, there are two problems, especially with this combo.
1) After shipping, roughly 1/3 the weight of chicken, turkey, and ground beef is powder. Not a huge issue, as the dust can be made into a paste/spread or added to soups, stew, gravy, pr omelets (or saved as emergency 'ground' pet food) but it is a bit annoying -- not much they can really do about it, so just a heads up.
2) In the combo, you get 2 cans each of chicken and ground beef. I would much rather have a one can each of sausage crumbles and ham... and make a true combo! Or better yet - a make your own combo option, where you get a discount if you purchase a case (6 #10 cans) of anything, or related items, as I also have this problem with the dairy combo
