Brand: Idahoan Real Premium Mashed Potatoes

Date code: 5325ydh1
Manufactured: Dec. 2005
Tested: August 2008

Result: If you were starving you could eat it (if you added a whole stick of butter) but the taste was definitely "off". It has a cardboard/papery taste and it ended up being thrown out.

Recommendation -- rotate sooner

When using mylar bags to store bulk potato flakes, should you put in dessicant packs as well as O2 adsorbers? I searched the archives but got no response.
Thanks

:arrow: "crossbow"

I only used O2 absorbers, some I vac sealed with the food savor and mason jasrs

:arrow: "Mr.Grey"

I have most of my instant mash flakes stored in glass with rubber gasket seals, no O2 absorbers or dessicants, Some of the older stuff has changed colour slightly, from white to cream- but even flakes from ten + years still mashes and tastes fine.
NB. I like it mixed with chicken and crouton powdered soup in a plastic pint mug for breakfast when I'm camping/hiking.

Instant potatoes‏ Storage?
http://www.themodernsurvivalist.com/archives/761

Excerpt: "Dehydrated mashed potatoes: I like this stuff a lot. It stores almost indefinitely as long as it’s kept dry. The ancient Incas used to make something similar: “The Incas had an interesting way of dehydrating potatoes. Small potatoes were placed outside on the ground at high elevations to freeze during the night. The next morning the potatoes would be gathered into piles. The men and women would stomp on them which would cause the water to squirt out. When they wanted to use the dehydrated potatoes they would just add water.” http://coe.fgcu.edu/STUDENTS/WEBB/MESO/incafood.htm
Potatoes are ones of the basic food staples around the world. A lightweight package that stores almost indefinitely and just needs water? Priceless. . . . ." Continued at link, above ...
