Grains and Beans

It’s a given. Food that is rich in protein, high in fiber and contain a powerhouse of nutrients should be included in every emergency food supply. That’s what you’ll get with our emergency supply of grains, oats, beans and rice.

Oats. Augason Farms offers Quick Rolled Oats and Regular Rolled Oats, both recognized for helping reduce cholesterol. Whether prepared as a warm and soothing hot cereal to start the day or in fresh-baked cookies and muffins, oats provide must-have versatility and nutrition for your survival food storage.

Grains. Another of the more versatile and nutritious emergency food storage components are hard red wheat and hard white wheat. Whether used to make cereal, ground into flour for wheat bread or sprouted to add to salads, it offers a variety of ways to add protein, texture and flavor to any meal.

Beans. Whether you choose pinto beans, lentil beans or black beans, be sure to have a good supply of legumes in your supply of survival food. Not only are they low in calories and high in nutrition, they help increase energy and support a healthy digestive system.

Rice. Long grain white rice and long grain brown rice not only share a long shelf life, but they make great-tasting side dishes and additions to casseroles and soups. Throw them into Augason Farms soup mixes and entrées to expand the number of servings they will serve. Cooked rice is even great added to scrambled eggs!

Since the early days of agriculture, cereals and grains have been an essential part of the human diet. Wheat, oats and rice are high in fiber and this fiber helps lower cholesterol levels. A diet full of cereals and grains can help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and even cancer. People who introduce whole grains (brown rice, oats, etc.) to their diets reduce the risk of heart disease by 25-36%. The risk of type-2 diabetes drops by 21-27% and the risk of stroke drops 37%. As you can see, a whole grain diet is essential for human health.

Blood sugar levels are a concern for many adults and oatmeal will serve to stabilize blood sugar levels. This is because the oats encourage slow digestion, and slow digestion equates to stable sugar levels. The American Diabetes Association recommends a fiber intake of 20-35 grams per day. One cup of oatmeal will provide about 4 grams of fiber.

Energy conservation is an important facet of emergency preparedness and cereals are the most economic source of energy available. This is why they work so well for long-term food storage. When used as a staple and in combination with other food groups, you can create an affordable food storage collection that will keep the body warm and energized.

With regard to vitamin content, whole cereals and grains are an important source of vitamin B. This is an essential vitamin that supports hormone and growth production, red blood cell formation and maintains a complete and healthy nervous system. Grains and cereals are also a good source of minerals, in particular phosphorous, zinc and calcium. Phosphorous is a mineral found present in brain tissue. Fruits and vegetables do not contain this mineral, so a diet rich in cereals and grains is essential for well balanced nutrition.

In times of emergency, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to purchase freshly baked goods, and these are necessary, not just for dietary requirements but also for food enjoyment. Our storable bakery products will provide your family with delicious nourishment and satisfaction.

Research has shown that "comfort" food is very important for the psychological well-being of an individual under duress. Our delicious chocolate fudge brownies, blueberry muffins and pancakes are going to provide this comfort for the whole family.

Being able to create your own bakery goods is wise from a financial standpoint. The cost of fresh bread, muffins and pancakes can quickly mount up, dramatically increasing the weekly food bill. Our bakery goods cut the cost of your grocery bill and save you hundreds of dollars over the course of a year. Our products are also diverse; the honey wheat bread and roll mix for example, can be made into a variety of bread products, a delicious pizza base and even cinnamon twists.
