I can't quote it exactly cuz I don't have my catolog in front of me but if I remember right they have a sliding scale of expiraton depending on the tempature. The highest listing was 10 years if you keep it under 60 degrees.
I think 16 years would be fine as long at you keep it in a nice cool area.
Those are great for food while on the run but you can purchase dried food in #10 cans that will last about the same amount of time. These would be better for storage at your compound. I'd go for both.

is where I got the catolog. They sell all kinds of great survival crap.
