Whether it's an emergency or not, you should have these three foods in your pantry.

Once bought, the products can be kept and enjoyed for decades.

Munich – Will the blackout become a reality this winter?

There are many assumptions as to whether the lights will actually go out nationwide during the dark season.

But not only since the energy crisis did experts recommend stocking up on supplies should an exceptional situation arise.

While the danger of having to leave your own four walls goes hand in hand with the advice of having a document folder in case of an emergency, it can ultimately also be the case that you stay in your own apartment.

As the corona pandemic has shown, it doesn't hurt to have stored groceries that make shopping superfluous.

Buying groceries in advance: what needs to be considered?

However, if you want to build up a food supply, you have to clarify a few things.

Where is there room for the products?

How are they prepared?

And which ones are actually suitable for possibly surviving years in the closet undamaged?

Especially in the blackout scenario, it is not necessarily smart to rely on the help of the freezer.

Rather, a kitchen cupboard is recommended at some distance from the stove and oven, in which the food can be stored at a constant temperature.

Apart from personal taste, products that can be prepared without much effort are also recommended.

Furthermore, the food should also be very filling in small quantities and – in an absolute emergency – also be able to provide enough calories.

According to the health

magazine Vital

, three storage products are very well suited to meet these requirements.

Ideal supply: These three foods last what feels like an eternity

  • Honey:

    It is known to come from the beehive, where flavonoids and hydrogen peroxide prevent germs from spreading.

    These inhibins then also end up in the honey jar.

    Originally sealed and stored in the dark, the liquid gold can be enjoyed forever.

    The consistency and taste can change depending on the temperature, but with a maximum water content of 18 percent honey hardly ever goes bad.

    According to Vital

    , researchers in Egypt found honey as a burial object that was still edible after 3,000 years.

  • Reis:

    As reported by the

    Reishunger

    portal , the rule of thumb of a "shelf life of up to two years" has become invalid due to "findings that were initiated by the German initiative 'Too good for the bin'".

    It was "shown that rice, along with pasta and salt, has no best-before date (MHD)".

    However, this does not apply to brown or oblong natural rice, as it spoils more quickly due to its higher fat content.

    Otherwise, the cereal grains are protected from air and moisture, but have a very long shelf life.

    The only downside: Rice should not be eaten raw.

    Although you can use the swelling properties of the grain, hot water is essential.

  • Legumes:

    beans, lentils, peas – they can be dried for decades.

    While the peeled fruit can only be eaten for around six months, unpeeled and stored in a cool place protected from light it is almost non-perishable.

    But the same applies here: uncooked fruit should not be eaten in order not to damage your health.

So a fully stocked pantry of non-perishable food can always come in handy.

Whether for a power failure or just for the small cravings in the evening.
