but the next day I continuously farted

tried again a few weeks later

This is a problem with a lot of emergency food.  The protein content tends to be heavy on TVP (textured vegetable protein = soy) and beans.  And soybean oil is substituted for other, less allergenic oils.

It delivers the protein all right, but if you're even mildly sensitive to soy you'll fart -- a lot.  If you're more sensitive it'll be in one minute, out three hours later along with a large water loss which is not good in an emergency when drinkable water is hard to find.

So if you have allergies or food sensitivities it's better to scrounge a 5 gallon food-grade bucket from a restaurant, then stock it with shelf-stable foods from the grocery store that you know you can eat without problems.  The price ends up being about the same anyway.

Regarding MREs, they're usually available on Craīgslīst from people who buy them surplus or from Guard members who bring their own food to maneuvers.  But they tend to be expensive ($5 and up per meal) and the shelf life is significantly reduced when stored in warm areas.

beprepared.com usually has a good selection of MRE-type components. I have dealt with them for years.
