Survival Food Scoring Comparison
I ran across this neat spreadsheet downloadable from scribd.com at http://www.scribd.com/doc/2189703/Survival-Food-Scoring-Comparison
This scribd.com author (jpnkevin) scored the options for disaster survival food against the factors storage life, storage space, preparation time, taste, and cost (per meal).
Although this is an objective calculation the ratings are subjective but based on the facts and information the has been reporting on their blog http://bulk-survival-food.com . Author has also added a weight to each factor based again on their opinion of it’s relative importance. The weighted score total for the survival food options is out of 10.
It is also important to note that the scoring was done for a food supply that will last 6 weeks to 3 months. MRE will fair far better in an 72 hour survival kit rating.
This is really handy and well worth the read. Check out the author's blog too!
