Healthy Dehydrated Food
FIREPOT by Outdoorfood has been three years in the making. As adventurists trekking through Greenland, we wanted our hikes to be punctuated by slow-cooked, natural food that tasted delicious. We wanted a healthy, hearty meal that didn’t weigh us down or keep us waiting. And we couldn’t find it anywhere.
So we made our own in a Dorset barn — delicious, nutritious, dehydrated slow-cooked meals inspired by our travels. We’ve kept it lightweight and easy to use so it can be enjoyed from the heights of the Himalayas to the fjords of Chile. All you have to do is add water.
Our recipes have been developed over months of tweaking, experimenting with flavour combinations and trying out different ingredients to maximise nutrition, not just taste. We’ve taken each of our ingredients and worked out how to ensure it arrives in your bowl just as it would in your own kitchen — perfectly cooked and delicious.
How do we compare?
A typical freeze-dried meal
Typically, the ingredients of a freeze-dried ‘meal’ are dried separately and mixed together by the producer, so the only time the flavours actually meet is in your pouch when you add water. They also feature confusing ingredients like smoke extract, preservatives and glucose syrup, with large quantities of palm oil. Take a look below at how we compare.
All of our food is nutritious, delicious and simple. You’ll recognise all the ingredients and you won’t find any artificial additives, flavourings or preservatives. We only add salt as you would at home - for flavour.
As an example, a portion of our Chilli con Carne has…
50% less sugar
30% more carbohydrates
35% less salt
100% less palm oil
...than the market leading Chilli meals. And not only does our food taste good, but it’s exactly what you need to fuel any adventure. Our Chilli con Carne provides…
60% of your recommended protein
30% of your recommended carbohydrate
35% of your recommended fibre
and only 18% of your recommended salt intake
