I realize many companies have been popping up but also know they dont have the complete nutritional values one would need. So who sells a good complete 6 month food supply? Im have limited space and will be in a bugout situation so looking at mobility as well, but thats secondary to nutritional values.

1 for sure, maybe 2.

Im looking at the Mountain Kits and Wise Foods. I like that Wise has kits that are individual packets. I hate that once you open a #10 can, you need to use it.

I just ordered a sampler of the WISE and a "few" #10 Cans of MH for now. Ive only dealt with MH and heard so so reviews on Wise, so Ill try em and see what I think.

Most Wise packs that I have seen are not single serve, they are 4 servings per pouch.
Not nescessarily a big deal, especially if there are two of you.

We don't store much freeze dried anything, various reasons, including sodium content.
But for portability, I agree it's probably your best bet.

The problem is getting enough calories to sustain yourself.
Most freeze dried menus I see rely on # of servings.
a serving is not a meal, most meals consist of at least 2-3 servings.
so, 6 months @ 2 servings/meal, that would require 1,080 servings per person.

Looking on their (Wise Foods) website, that would require about 9 buckets (@ 120 servings/bucket) of food per person.
and @ 18-20lbs/bucket - about 108lbs per person.
