Tactical Foodpack: Food for the next hike or as an emergency ration

Tactical Foodpack 45c80e2edfb1c98d

Who longer trips or multi-day hikes in nature undertakes, may have already tried trekking food. With the mostly freeze-dried meal, the most important thing is to supply the body with energy. The food packets are therefore often rich in fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

The advantages over the well-known reserve cans clearly outweigh the disadvantages: on the one hand, the packs are space-saving and can be folded again in many cases. In addition, they are significantly lighter and are therefore also suitable for transport over longer distances. In the meantime, there are also rations for a wide range of requirements: Hearty main meals with fish, meat, without meat or even vegan, sweet desserts, breakfast or small snacks in between. Depending on the manufacturer and storage, the packs even last for several years and are therefore also suitable as emergency rations.

What you should note, however: Like instant food, freeze-dried products are prepared with hot or boiling water. The packs alone are not enough for a full meal. Cans, on the other hand, can sometimes be eaten cold in an emergency. Apart from that, you should follow the recommendations of the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance for real emergency situations. Here we show you what you should always have at home. One difference between trekking and crisis food, for example, is that the trekking products should not only be nutritious but also tasty.

We present popular trekking food in the following table:

Starch from pasta is one of the complex carbohydrates – and one of the real fatteners. For example, those who are on a diet are happy to do without it. This is only partially true, because even if you want to lose some weight, you can still rely on pasta – but you should pay attention to a trick. It sounds surprising, but it’s true: when pasta gets cold, it has fewer calories. This also applies to potatoes, rice and other starchy foods.

Of course, it is not enough to lose weight just to rely on potatoes, pasta and Co. from the day before. In any case, these foods from the day before can help to lose weight in the long term. The reason: when cooked pasta cools, some of the starch it contains becomes indigestible. Consequently, they also provide no calories. The pasta from the day before contains about ten percent less digestible starch than freshly cooked pasta. This also applies if you heat them up again and fry the noodles, for example. However, the process takes about twelve to 24 hours, so you should let the noodles rest for that long – preferably in the refrigerator, so that no unwanted bacteria can settle.

Briefly explained: What is resistant starch?

Starch is one of the carbohydrates and is the most important nutritional and reserve carbohydrate in many foods. Briefly explained, it is a natural polysaccharide that is found in pasta, potatoes and cereals, among other things.

When these starchy foods cool down, resistant starch is produced as a degradation product. The indigestible starch becomes a type of fiber as it passes through the small intestine without being utilized. In the body, resistant starch behaves in a similar way to dietary fiber. Dietary fiber keeps you full for longer due to its indigestible or resistant starch.

There are password managers so that you don’t have to remember countless passwords. These not only store your login data in encrypted form, but also your passwords. In addition to a quick login, the tools also help to never forget a password again.

Over the past year, our experts from the test center examined ten different services for safety, operation and equipment. It was also important that the services can be used not only on the PC (Windows and Mac), but also on the smartphone (Android and iOS).

The general rule: If you pay, you usually get more bids. In addition to paid services, a free tool was also convincing here, which, unlike other providers, does not save your data in the service but only locally.

In the following table we show you not only the test winner and the price tip but also the free alternative at a glance. You can read more information about the test, tips on how to use it and which programs we have also tested in our detailed purchase advice.
