    So these #10 cans have multiple servings in them – the ones, like the strawberries, are something like 28 servings – which for a single person is a 1 month supply of strawberries! :)

    Question is, though, once the can is opened, do the products start going bad? I have no experience with freeze-dried products and am starting the process of storing items in case of disaster – these seem like good products with the 30 year shelf life (no need to worry about rotation) but I am concerned about the shelf life after the can is opened.

    Reading through the previous posts will answer many of the questions that may come up. But in answer to this question: 2-4 weeks.

    Once opened the freeze dried food start to rehydrate from the moisture content in the air. As they start to rehydrate they can start to spoil as well. Once you open the can, pull out your contents and then place the lid on the can to limit the esposure to fresh air…While this does limit the variety of your menu at the time, at least you are eating ;)

    Thank you for giving the actual can size in volume and especially in inches. It helped with planning where to store besides under my bed. #10 cans will fit in the back of my kitchen base cabinets, too.

    re: how many cups are in a #10 can.
    There are 8 ounces in one cup and there are
    109.43 ounces in one #10 can. Therefor, 13.68
    cups in a #10 can, approximately 13 cups 5 ounces.

    Can I get longer shelf life on an opened #10 can if I re-seal the product in mylar pouches with oxygen absorbers? I would like to buy a big can (because it’s cheaper per serving) and subdivide it into single-serving pouches. Would it keep for many years like that?

    Yes you can. This is the perfect course of action to take. If you promptly put the food under vacuum seal with one oxygen absorberr, you have no change in shelf life from when it was in the number 10 can.
