This is interesting.

Thats why either salts or vinegar, or both, are used heavily in canning, pickling, fermenting, and curing.
My wife and I took a canning course at the farm bureau extension office last summer. They were the ones that told us that highly acidic foods were problematic.

Several weeks worth of Mountain House per person for the short term or bug out potential. Farmer across the road grows winter wheat and corn in the summer so we keep several pails of each with oxygen absorbers. Since I have a dietary constraint and need to limit wheat we keep a fair amount of white rice (20 yr storage life) and brown rice (10 year storage life).

Honeybee hives close by along with cattle and goats we could trade for if needed and I keep a few laying hens for daily eggs

For variety some freeze dried veggies and beans. Lots of spices, sugar, and coffee. A big bottle of cheap vitamins per person.

Brew our own beer and make wine occasionally so the essentials are covered.
