When stored properly, wheat can be stored for over 30 years. To last this long, it must be stored in #10 cans with an oxygen absorber, kept below 75°, and away from water, insects, and rodents.
However, you should not just let wheat sit on your shelf for 30 years. You should use it now. Why?
- Who wants to eat 30 year old food? Bluck!
- You should know how to use it before you have to use it.
- It's nutritious! Eat it every day!
- If you start eating a lot of wheat suddenly, you will get very sick. You need to build up your tolerance gradually.
