8 Nut-Free Staples for Your Emergency Food Kit

Emergency Preparedness

Did you know that over 5% of the population has a nut allergy? When preparing your emergency food kit, it's important to consider allergens, especially nuts. Here are 8 nut-free staples to keep in your emergency food kit: rice and quinoa, canned vegetables, dried fruits, canned protein, pasta and sauce, shelf-stable soups, instant oatmeal, and shelf-stable milk. Having these items on hand ensures that you can be prepared for any situation without worrying about nut allergies.

Key Takeaways

  • Rice and quinoa are versatile and nutritious pantry staples that should be rinsed before cooking. Use a 1:2 ratio for rice and a 1:1.5 ratio for quinoa.
  • Canned vegetables are a convenient addition to emergency food supplies and should be stored properly in a cool, dry place. Choose varieties with no added salt or sugar.
  • Dried fruits are a nutritious alternative to nuts and have a long shelf life. Include a variety of dried fruits for different flavors and nutrients.
  • Canned protein such as chicken, tuna, and beans are essential for emergency meal options. Consider plant-based proteins and meat substitutes as well.
