Yes. Yes it would.Knuckle wrote:They mention that the major ingredient is over 90% fish oil....
well, if that's true, maybe we can cook with it too....yes?(it's comments like these that make others want to cook instead of me having to)
I would worry about all the other gunk in there, for anybody not catching the laughter.
Knuckle wrote:One thought that comes to mind is that if flour is good for long term storage, and noodles such as macaroni are mostly flour, why not stock up on large quantities of macaroni and therefore less flour? It's already prepared for long term storage and should keep even longer now, yes? I already have lots of macaroni and I am one who tries for every shortcut I can find. I like eating a lot more than cooking or cleaning, so any answer has against this line of thought has got to penetrate some heavy barriers to have me change now...
Noodles of almost any kind will actually keep longer than flour. I know flour is in it, I don't know why it makes a difference, it does, just like whole wheat berries store longer than flour does.
Flour typically has a 10-15 year shelf life when in Mylar or sealed cans, and .
Noodles will go out 20-25 years according to some, 30+ according to others.
I have 3-8 year old egg noodles and spaghetti in heavy-duty cellophane (love the dollar store) that were only sealed in a bucket, no Mylar, no O2 absorbers, and they're taking about 5 minutes longer than "new" to cook, but are cooking up fine.
The LDS order sheet (not a member) has some of their tested and anticipated shelf life info. http://providentliving.org/bc/content/p ... f?lang=eng
Augason Farms (not affiliated) also has nice fact sheets with their stuff that I use as a confirmation and ROT when I can't find a date on something.

Don't use it for calories or other nutrition for companies, because ingredients vary by company.
Also, double check before clicking buy, because there are places like MRE Depot that sell canned and bucket foods, but theirs only last 5-15 years in some/many cases, and some of the just-add-water pouches out there are still 7-15 years instead of 15-25.
