Alpha PMX is gluten free and does not contain cows milk, Soya, or egg ingredients. Alpha PMX is suitable for vegetarians.
Alpha PMX can be stored as emergency rations at home (in a survival kit, for example) or on a boat for quick meals during races, storms and survival rations on an ocean-cruise. Alpha PMX and water are the ultimate survival rations. An adult using minimal energy can live for 4 days on 1000 Grams of Alpha PMX and water.
NASA sponsored ENF development to define the minimum weight and volume requirement for human food. Elemental mixtures represent the simplest, most compact form of nutrition and have been called "Space Diets". If you are traveling you save weight and volume by just taking nutrients and water along.
Alpha PMX is a complete nutrient set minus the fat component, designed to be mixed with water, fruit or vegetable juices. Alpha PMX is a dry powder and is preferred for longer-term storage of nutrients and traveling. The fat component has been omitted, extending the shelf life. Any vegetable oil can be added to Alpha PMX at the time of use to complete the nutrient set.
Alpha PMX has a longer shelf life and is more heat tolerant than it companion formula, Alpha ENF. Alpha PMX is an efficient method of transporting nutrients on expeditions, hiking, and mountain climbing.
Store Survival Rations
If you want to store nutrient rations, a one kilogram bottle of Alpha PMX can supply basic nutrition for one adult for 4 days. The formula can be stored in a cool dark place for up to two years. The formula can be placed in cold storage or freezer to extend its shelf life.
A stable vegetable oil can be stored in a similar manner and added to the dried powder to complete the nutrient set. Flavored fruit drink powders added to Alpha PMX to flavor the mixture (no extra sugar is required).
Water requirement: we recommend storing 4 Liters of water per person per day. Replace stored tap water every 6 months. Properly distilled, sterilized bottled water, free of microorganisms, can be stored for several years. PMX is especially useful as a survival food if illness or injury requires complete, easy to digest nutrition.
Alpha PMX is a dry powder, packaged in 1000 Gram plastic jars.
