Having aspirin on hand can be helpful in relieving headaches and reducing fever. Getting a fever with flu-like symptoms during a crisis is not only bad, but it can also be fatal. Adhesive tape has many uses. You can fix a tent, hose, better insulate your shoes, etc.
Mythbusters even made a kayak out of duct tape and some wooden parts. Water is not food, but it is essential for your reserves. If you have 3 months of food but only one week of water, you won't survive for months unless you find alternative water sources. White rice lasts at least 4 years, while brown rice won't last longer than one (because coffee oils simply oxidize faster).
So stock up on white rice unless, of course, your family enjoys coffee and you eat it often enough to constantly rotate your supply. Store pasta the old-fashioned way (in Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers) and you can expect it to last 15 years. Freeze-dried foods are perfect for insect bags because they are lightweight. The idea behind this is to eliminate all traces of water.
To consume them, adequate amounts of water would be needed to reconstitute real food. Keep this in mind when you're being left out, because drinking water can be a problem. Why ROSA salmon? Because it has one of the best preserves of all canned fish foods, around 3 to 5 years old. This is the reason why I didn't just include along with the other canned foods.
Lemon, lime, pineapple, orange, whatever. For my part, I can still remember Tang, the powder I used to mix with water and drink like crazy as a child. In addition to the obvious use for cooking things like pancakes, cakes, etc., baking soda has a million uses. For example, did you know that you can mix it with a little water to make homemade toothpaste? Thank you for this participation.
Everything, but sure seed tapes. How old were your beans? I have found something similar with canned foods: I never had dates in past years and they were good for many years. However, one consideration is that pull top cans I think will have a shorter shelf life. Don't forget about medicines, toiletries, and distilled water, especially if you have a CPAP that we use with a marine battery if we run out of power.
But this list is very useful. Once cooked, it can be dehydrated and pulverized in a blender. Then add water and you're done. I learned how to add a teaspoon of baking soda to the beans while the water is still cold before cooking them and they cook very quickly, I do it all the time.
Try using a kettle to heat the water. I don't soak my beans, I drank them too many times after soaking them overnight that the beans were bad or have gone bad.
