Roast Beef (Beef and Salt).
Temperature: Storing THRIVE at a high temperature can significantly increase the speed that calories and vitamins will degrade over time. In the correct storage container, low-moisture foods such as THRIVE can be stored at room temperature or cooler (75 degrees Fahrenheit or lower) and remain nutritious and edible for years. Our stated shelf life assumes that the product will be stored in optimal conditions.
Humidity: The effects of humidity on a closed can are caused by heat and very similar to the effects of high temperature (see above). High humidity can corrode the cans and in some cases even cause the cans to leak. Areas with high humidity can reduce the opened shelf life of the product. As humidity varies with location please use your own discretion to prevent possible sickness from eating spoiled food.
Damaged Container: Minor dents in the center of the can are usually just a cosmetic issue. However, a can that has been dented near or on a seam can have a compromised air-tight seal and allow oxygen to enter the can. If this is the case we recommend using the dented can within the specified opened shelf life, rather than closed.
The best way to maintain the highest quality of your THRIVE products is to take care of them. If you intend on storing your food for the sealed shelf life, store the cans in a place that is not open to elements such as water, light, and air. Take care of it. Don't expose it unnecessarily to the elements. Also, be sure to keep the temperature and humidity low and even. Under these proper storing situations your THRIVE will maintain its delicious taste, natural coloring, and proper nutrients.

Tastes great. Rethink portion size
I got a pantry size sample can today along with some other samples and made up one cup which should work out to one pound of rehydrated meat. There wasn't much left in the can after I pulled out one cup yet the catalog says a pantry size can should work out to 15 servings. I'm just not seeing it. The meat tasted great and my wife who is trying to be on board but isn't quite there thought dinner was great. I would have given 5 stars but for the fact that the serving size was so off.
I too thought the RB would be slices not tiny little dices, didn't like them at all. Would like to return the unopened can to trade for the Seasoned Chicken that I REALLY liked!!
Great for quick & easy meals
Yes, the FD roast beef is in tiny dices, but I think they do well for quick & easy meals. I have added them to pasta sauces for a different texture, and it's delicious! It's also great with a Beef & Rice dish I "cooked" up one night.
A definite keeper for long-term storage as well as every day use.
Just ok for me
I am really only reviewing the items that were not great for me, because I want to feed back the areas that I believe need improvement. SR stuff is top-notch in general, but a few specifics are not great.
This is one that is not great. I splurged on the fancy meat pack, thinking, I guess, that this would be slices of roast beef that would have the texture and taste of the original (like a freeze dried ice cream sandwich does).
Instead, these are tiny cubes (about 1/8") that - sadly - have the aroma of, well, dry pet food. I don't know if that's preventable (since they are both dried beef), but that's the way it is.
By itself, this isn't particularly edible... however, my wife made a beef strogonoff-type dish with egg noodles and a sauce and it was just fine in that type of dinner.
I think its the picture on the label that sets unrealistic expectations
