Sometimes my math gets all wonky and I get things wrong but I don’t think so this time. While I definitely like the idea of these survival tabs for a variety of reasons–including their longevity and assorted vitamin and protein yield–I do question some claims, specifically the “15 day food supply” claim from their website.
For instance, glancing at the back of the package when he shows it to you in the video below at about the 1:00 mark (this info can also be found here) states that 12 survival tabs provides 240 calories. When I go to their website I can buy a bottle of 180 tabs for $40. Doing the math, therefore, suggests that there are 3600 calories in the entire bottle which equates to roughly 1.5 days of food for the average adult male (assumed 2500 calories per day).
I do find it interesting that he briefly mentions a study (at the 2:10 mark) of people living off of these survival tabs but I don’t see this being viable either for the calories or the cost.
Am I missing something here?
Personally, I wouldn’t consider this a food supply to live off of but, rather, a stop-gap solution to add to my bug out bags at best.
What about you? Have you tried these survival tabs? Are they worth the cost?
