    How to store FD powdered food?

    I have a few cans of FD powdered food products. For these particular foods, like tomato powder, etc, I'm not sure what the shelf life is after opening. I have some garlic and onion powder that has only been kept in the original plastic containers that are hard as rocks. I'm thinking vacuum...

    Anyone using Thrive food?

    I'm think about trying this instead of continuing to buy so much canned food. I know some use this for everyday food. Unfortunately not much is organic, but I could overlook that on some foods.
