How it works

How Self-Heating Works

Our patented Self-Heating Technology is a simple combination of food grade iron and magnesium powder, salt, and water. When the contents of the water pouch are poured over the heater pad, the Food Heater releases enough heat to warm-up a pre-cooked meal 100 degrees Fahrenheit in approximately 10 minutes.

HEATING ANY OF OUR SELF-HEATING MEALS IS EASY!
