06 Feb Everything You’ll Love About Peak Refuel Meals
Whether your sport is hiking, hunting, or camping, you have your choice about what food to carry in the backcountry. It’s an important choice to make, too, as it will determine your energy levels and comfort while you’re away from the amenities of home.
Two important things you really need to account for are weight and nutrients. If you can get good energy in a light package, you can throw flavor in there, too.
Peak Refuel Meals deliver all that, and then some. Here are all the things you love about this producer of top-quality, top-shelf backcountry meals.
Suppliers Are Extensively Vetted
Peak Refuel Meals is particular about their suppliers, and they put all ingredients suppliers through an extensive vetting process before using anything from them in their formulas.
Where They’re Made
Peak Refuel Meals are made in the United States of America. What’s not to love about that?
They’re Tops for Convenience, and Fully Cooked
An MRE isn’t very ready to eat if it isn’t fully cooked, but Peak Refuel makes it easy. They are extremely easy to prepare in the field, taking only a matter of minutes, making them perfect for true backcountry trips where you’ll have to give up the amenities for several days at a time.
They Require Less Water for Preparation
Water, like food and space, comes at a premium in the field. Fortunately, preparing Peak Refuel Meals doesn’t take that much. Most of their meals use an average of less than 10 ounces to prepare. They can be prepared in 10 minutes or less and require less water than most other outdoor meals on the market.
Ounces become pounds, right? Especially when you’re not near the truck or cabin. These meals can weigh less than 5 ounces, making them perfect for packing, and even taking them on ultralight trips.
They’re Made with 100% Real Meat and Premium Ingredients
Peak Refuel uses only 100% real meat, inspected by the USDA, in their meals. They never use filler or TVP, (AKA textured vegetable protein) in place of meat in their meals. They also use the highest-quality, non-GMO ingredients available, in all of their meals.
They’re Packed to the Gills with Nutrients
With Peak Refuel, it’s just as much about nourishment as it is about quality ingredients. Each one averages nearly 40g of protein – which you need to stoke the furnace when you’re burning the midnight oil on the trail – and average over 800 calories per pack.
Tons of Unique Flavors
Peak Refuel is also about variety. You know, the spice of life? There are tons of unique flavors in their catalog.
Sound good? That’s because they are.
They Make Desserts and Drinks, Too
Peak Refuel won’t leave you high and dry when it’s time to hydrate, or when you need something sweet. They have you covered on that front, too, with cobblers, granola mixes, and energizing drink sticks that are sugar-free, artificial-sweetener-free, and which are packed with vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes you need to replenish what you lose on the trail.
Peak Refuel Meals: FAQs
Still have questions about Peak Refuel Meals before you stock up? Here are some of the most common questions, answered.
How Long Do Peak Refuel Meals Last?
Peak Refuel guarantees that their meals will have fresh flavor for as long as 5 years. However, since they are freeze-dried and packed to last longer, they might – the guarantee is only for 5 years, though. They keep very well.
Notwithstanding the official guarantee from Peak Refuel, most freeze dried foods will last anywhere between 20 and 30 years. So if you have one that’s a few years old you should still be good to go.
Can You Prepare Them with Cold Water?
It depends on the meal, but yes, in fact, some of their meals are intended to be prepared with cold water. Simply add the amount of water recommended and enjoy.
Can They Be Cooked in the Pouch?
One of the great things about Peak Refuel Meals is that no mess kit is required. They can (and are designed to be) prepared and enjoyed right in the pouch, simplifying and streamlining your camp kitchen substantially. That way you can focus on the reason you’re in the field – not on cooking.
Where Are They Freeze Dried?
As stated, Peak Refuel Meals are made in the United States of America; they are also freeze-dried and packaged here as well.
Are There Gluten or Dairy-Free Options?
There are no certified gluten-free meals in Peak Refuel’s lineup but several of their entries do not contain any gluten. Please see their website for additional details.
Peak Refuel does produce several dairy free meals, including Three Bean Chili Mac, Chicken Teriyaki, Butternut Dhal Bat, Chicken Coconut Curry, and Mountain Berry Granola.
Are There Vegetarian Options?
There are several vegetarian options in Peak Refuel’s catalog, including Butternut Dhal Bat, Mountain Berry Granola, and Three Bean Chili Mac
Peak Refuel vs. Mountain House: Which Is Better?
Mountain House is one of Peak Refuel’s chief competitors, but Peak Refuel meals tend to have a higher average calorie count, more protein, and less sodium than comparable Mountain House Meals.
With that said, it’s your choice. Choose the brand that makes the meals you like most.
