Food Storage Analyzer™

This is important information pertaining to the toxicity of beans.  Please read and understand on how to avoid this issue.


The toxic compound phytohaemagglutinin, a lectin, is present in many varieties of common bean but is especially concentrated in red kidney beans. Phytohaemagglutinin can be deactivated by cooking beans at 100 C (212 F) for ten minutes. However, for dry beans the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also recommends an initial soak of at least 5 hours in water; the soaking water should be discarded.


The ten minutes at 100 C (212 F) is required to degrade the toxin, and is much shorter than the hours required to fully cook the beans themselves. However, lower cooking temperatures may have the paradoxical effect of potentiating the toxic effect of haemagglutinin. Beans cooked at 80 C(176 F) are reported to be up five times as toxic as raw beans. Outbreaks of poisoning have been associated with the use of slow cookers, the low cooking temperatures of which may be unable to degrade the toxin.


The primary symptoms of phytohaemagglutinin poisoning are nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Onset is from 1 to 3 hours after consumption of improperly prepared beans, and symptoms typically resolve within a few hours. Consumption of as few as four or five raw kidney beans may be sufficient to trigger symptoms.


Beans are high in purines, which are metabolized to uric acid. Uric acid is not itself considered a toxin, but it may promote the development or exacerbation of gout. For this reason, persons with gout are often advised to limit their consumption of beans. Uric acid is also an important antioxidant in humans and, according to cohort studies, might be neuroprotective in cases of multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.

POOR MAN'S MRE - total resistance.com

You can save money by making your own MREs at home. Spam or canned ham really hits the spot. Vienna sausage.Tuna, canned goods, M&Ms etc.

Repack in ziplocks to eliminate weight and trash. Haul out trash or animals will dig it up and let people know you were there.

A good lightweight filling additions to my MRE ration is instant rice. Cheap, filling and light.

I weigh out 1/2 cup of rice with a pinch of salt, 1/8 teaspoon of pepper,1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optional for many,especially if limited rations) and 1 crushed bullion cube into a heavy duty Ziplock bag. Add or subtract seasonings to taste.

I then place some 100mph tape on the outside (to be used later). To eat. If your tactical you'll add 1 cup of cold water,let sit and enjoy.

Or heat up 1 cup of water with a sterno (remember be tactical,no open fires) pour into Ziplock, mix,seal,roll the top down a little and use your 100mph tape to hold roll. Wait 5 minutes and enjoy.

When your famished this will taste awesome. I promise. If on the move,carry in your trouser cargo pocket. Even cold water will warm up there.

Survival Bars by Vicki Tate

3 Cups cereal (oatmeal,cornmeal,wheat flakes)
2 1/2 Cups powdered milk
1 Cup sugar
3 Tablespoons honey
3 Tablespoons water
1/2 Cup Jello (optional)
1/4 Teaspoon salt

Place all dry ingredients except jello in bowl. Bring water,honey and jello to a boil...Add to dry ingredients. Mix well. Add water a little at a time until mixture is just ready to mold. Place in a small square dis and dry in the oven under low heat. Wrap and store. This will make 2 bars, each containing 1000 calories or enough food for one day. These will store for a long time and are excellent for emergency packs, etc. Eat dry or cooked in about 3/4 cup of water.

FOR LIKE MINDED PATRIOTS WHO WANT TO SURVIVE ANY AND ALL SITUATIONS THAT THEY MAY FACE.
