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!

Flameless Ration Heaters (FRH)
FRH food heaters are used easily in situations where fire is prohibited or not
recommended; making the FRH ideal for soldiers in the field, campers, hunters,
boaters, or anyone interested in emergency preparedness supplies.
FRH food heaters weigh less than one ounce and are easy to store.
Self-Heating Technology was introduced for use as the Field Ration Heater (FRH) by the U.S. Armed Forces in 1990 to heat Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MREs) for soldiers in the field. We have heated nearly 2.5 Billion MREs since then.
