MRE’s

An MRE (Meal, Ready-To-Eat) is a military ration which is designed to feed a soldier engaged in field operations where normal food service facilities are not available.

Each MRE is a totally self-contained operational ration consisting of a full meal packed in a flexible meal bag. The complete unit is lightweight and fits easily into military field clothing pockets.

Each MRE meal bag provides an average of 1,250 calories (13% protein, 36% fat, and 51% carbohydrates). It also provides one-third of the Military Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamins and minerals determined essential by the Surgeon General of the United States.

MRE’s may be eaten cold, heated in hot water, or warmed using the supplied flameless MRE heating device. MRE’s can even be warmed on the engine of a HMMVW.

MRE’s are designed to last a minimum of three years if stored at 80 degrees fahrenheit, or much longer in cool storage.
