"After several months of collecting items for my food storage, I felt pretty confident that I had enough food for a year's supply for my family. Since I order regularly from Emergency Essentials, I came across their Food Storage Analyzer™ and decided to give it a try. I had used various other programs available while I collected my food storage, but I liked that Emergency Essentials' Food Storage Analyzer would break it down into not only calories, but also essential vitamins.
This was something that I had wondered about as I stocked up on my grains, legumes and other food storage essentials since we were used to eating a much broader diet filled with many fruits and vegetables. After inputting my food storage, I was happy to see that we had over 400 days worth of calories, but shocked to Replace that we were more than 70% deficient in Vitamin A. We were also 40% deficient in Vitamin C and 25% deficient in Calcium.

After discovering this, I thought, "How do I fix it?" Then, right there to the right of the results, were buttons which led me to a list of items that were high in each of those nutrients. It took me just a few minutes to Replace several options in each nutrient category for my family to try. I learned that it is important to know what is in your food storage, besides calories, to try and be the best prepared for your family. I also know what to watch for during sales in the coming months since I know exactly what items would give us the most benefit in our food storage plan."
