Posted on Posted in Blog, Gear Test

A part of the Blå Band Expedition Meal series, this portion tastes great and is easy to prepare: just pour boiling water into the bag, mix and let sit for 10 minutes. Can also be prepared in cold water, using a waiting time of at least 30 minutes.

Whether you plan to climb some of the peaks in the Himalaya’s or tackle ones nearer home, or even take a day trip by canoe – these expedition meals are great for any adventure!

Blå Band are the Scandinavian market leaders for dried expedition meals. Originally developed though collaboration with the Swedish military; the meals are now a must have for every outdoor enthusiast.

They taste great and could not be easier to prepare. All you have to do is simply fill the packet up to the indicated level with hot or cold water.

The packaging is made from Flextrus Transofoil®, which is both fully recyclable as a plastic and is designed in such a way to act as an excellent insulator, helping keep your meal hotter for longer.

Blå Band’s meals cater for people with special dietary requirements where some of the meals are suitable for vegetarians, those with lactose intolerance and people who need their food to be gluten free.

A considerate feature can be found on the ingredients list where Blå Band have highlighted any potential allergens in bold writing helping customers easily identify any ingredients that may disagree with them.
