Temperature: Storing THRIVE at a high temperature can significantly increase the speed that calories and vitamins will degrade over time. In the correct storage container, low-moisture foods such as THRIVE can be stored at room temperature or cooler (75 degrees Fahrenheit or lower) and remain nutritious and edible for years. Our stated shelf life assumes that the product will be stored in optimal conditions.
Humidity: The effects of humidity on a closed can are caused by heat and very similar to the effects of high temperature (see above). High humidity can corrode the cans and in some cases even cause the cans to leak. Areas with high humidity can reduce the opened shelf life of the product. As humidity varies with location please use your own discretion to prevent possible sickness from eating spoiled food.
Damaged Container: Minor dents in the center of the can are usually just a cosmetic issue. However, a can that has been dented near or on a seam can have a compromised air-tight seal and allow oxygen to enter the can. If this is the case we recommend using the dented can within the specified opened shelf life, rather than closed.
The best way to maintain the highest quality of your THRIVE products is to take care of them. If you intend on storing your food for the sealed shelf life, store the cans in a place that is not open to elements such as water, light, and air. Take care of it. Don't expose it unnecessarily to the elements. Also, be sure to keep the temperature and humidity low and even. Under these proper storing situations your THRIVE will maintain its delicious taste, natural coloring, and proper nutrients.

These are the BEST
I HAVE to put these in my salads every day! It gives that "crunch" I need and the added vitamins & minerals. Plus no chopping or worries of it going bad. I LOVE these!
LOVE these red peppers!!
My Italian grandmother used to make us scrambled eggs with red peppers. I rehydrate these, add them to a pan with just a little olive oil to cook the peppers a bit, and then add my THRIVE eggs for an easy, delicious breakfast.
I also love to add these to my sandwich before I head off to work: I put a little mayo on my bread, add the peppers and then my lunch meat. By lunchtime, the peppers are rehydrated and add delicious flavor to my boring sandwich...plus I get in more veggies!! : )
awesome in a can
We cook with a lot of peppers, mostly green because the red ones are normally expensive. These red peppers have a terrific flavor, are quick and easy to use, saves on cutting up time and zero spoilage. When I have my customers do taste testing of products--both these and the green peppers get rave reviews. I also like the size of the pieces, not tiny like the carrots.
One of my demo's is an omelet, when I rehydrate the egg, I put some onions, some of the red and green peppers, a few diced tomatoes, some bacon or sausage TVP (or the real sausage) and cheddar cheese. Cook it with a little of the rehydrated shortening. I like to cook this while they watch and they are amazed at the flavor and simplicity.
