    Radix nutrition meals

    Hey folks.

    Some of you may or may not have seen these meals as a alternative to the usual.

    https://www.radixnutrition.com/collections/hunting

    I've had them on a few separate occasions to give em a go.

    The lamb and rosemary one and the salmon one to be precise.

    I'm the sorta person who needs food every 2 hours and at that good food. With these I can go 5 hours before I need a feed and I have heaps of energy to keep me going.

    The salmon one.

    Honestly without being a foodie.

    If I'd closed my eyes and someone said; have some salmon. Id have fully believed them. The lamb one is wow. Open it up and it makes the whole room smell like fresh rosemary. Yummy.

    Super yummy and smaller yet more filling than the usual meals.

    Hands down my pick of the lot.

    Hope someone finds my limited research helpful

    Reserving judgement on them for the time being. Ate several last weeekend - they taste allright.

    They don't seem to have chunky bits like the BackCountry ones - more of a soup.
    The apple and berry ones are quite sweet - like a thick smoothy but perfectly edible.

    They claim to have more protein, fats, carbs and other nutrients and even fibre than other dehy per weight - not sure how that's possible but someone with a spreadsheet might be able to tell us.

    They only use 200 or 250mL water per packet unlike two serve BackCountry which are 500mL.

    Packaging is a bit more compact which is a bonus.

    The "Expedition" range looks best for hunting.



    Message to dehy food manufacturers -
    PLEASE put on the outside in large letters that a 60 year old can read by candle light:
    Volume of boiling water (typically hidden in small myopic teenage sized print among other data)
    Net Weight
    Whether any subpackages inside or any inedible preservative packs to be removed before adding water.
    Any "freeness" eg gluten, dairy, nuts.

    I can't view their site without first entering my email details to get rid of the pop-up covering the bulk of the screen. They might be fine meals but Radix don't know how to set up a website to not piss off potential customers, and in this day and age, that is unforgivable imo.

    Tried the chicken curry and mixed berry the other week. Well worth the few extra bucks over other brands. The expedition sized meals where just right.

    I bought about a dozen of them at the start of the year that were clearance for about $9 each. I thought they were tasty but small.
    I’ve gone back to back country as I don’t think the increased taste is worth it for a smaller meal being more expensive

    I've had the Indian style Chicken curry and Mexican chilli Beef and compared to the limited Back Country and Absolute Wilderness flavors I've also tried, I rate these very highly (so much I've gone back and bought some more). And yes compared to a double serve of Back Country they are smaller in portion size but appear to be more nutrient dense per 100g so are actually quite similar nutritionally from a smaller serve = better bang for buck if you ask me... also like the fact they are a local New Zealand company based here in Hamilton

    Evening meals are alright but I didn't like the breakfasts.

    Back country is the worst tasting food that Iíve ever eaten in the hills.
    Absolute Wilderness is great, the radix is ok but u still prefer AW.
    The AW seems to have the right flavour strength and contains real meat, not the reconstructed stuff that Backcountry has.
