The Best Dehydrated Backpacking & Hiking Meals

The best dehydrated backpacking and hiking meals cannot be defined by one person or a single article which compares just a handful of them, the best dehydrated backpacking and hiking meals are subjective to you and to your tastes, dietary requirements, weight allowance, calories per gram (for the ultralighters) and a myriad of other specifics you require of your packaged meals.

That is why here at Outdoor Food Club  we are cataloguing all of the outdoor foods made by outdoor brands and other food manufacturers which are useful when outdoors, exercising or need something specific and on the go.

This includes packaged meals and even more specifically, dehydrated meals, and by gathering all of their nutritional info, we work out basic nutrition stats, like protein per gram and protein per dollar. This enables us to create specific ranking lists, which are categorised above to show you what are the best hiking meals in regards to the question being asked of it, in this case, what dehydrated backpacking meals are available to buy from all of the differing food brands and which have the most calories.
