So, reading the post by @Oddcaliber the other day got me thinking about the things we store in our vehicles. One thing that came to the forefront for me was food. Every work day starts the same: coffee, shower, dress, and go. But before the 'go' part, I need to load the vehicle...lunchbox, thermos, coffee cup, computer/bag, and up until recently, my get-home bag, which I have started to just leave in Ox to save some time in the mornings. I work about 40 miles from home, so not having it with me is not an option. The get-home bag is chock full of all the usual, and maybe not-so-usual items we carry. My concern now is the food. Being summer now, vehicle interiors get hot. I use a sunshade in the front, have tinted glass, and keep the windows cracked. The inside stays pretty decently cool comparatively speaking. The food being kept in said bag that concerns me is the canned goods: Spam, sardines, shredded pork and chicken, and tuna. Maybe not all at the same time, but a representative example. I've been stuck away from home before, and having food is always a good thing. So, the question is this: how do the elevated temps effect canned food long-term? What is currently in the bag has been there about 3 months. Is it safe to eat? None of the cans are bulging, etc. Scrolling a few pages on the innerwebs has revealed that nutrient loss, taste, texture, etc can be affected, but as far as storage in hot temps go, they just say don't do it. Comments and opinions encouraged and welcomed.
