Why Freeze Dried Food?

If you have never heard about freeze dried foods before, don't worry!

Let me introduce you to this must-add category of food you probably haven't even considered adding to your everyday food pantry. 

In case you haven't heard, freeze dried foods are a type of preservation process that removes moisture from fresh foods, locking in their natural flavors, nutrients, and textures. Which means all the goodness that comes from eating fresh from the farm are locked in until you are ready to eat them up!

This is achieved through a unique freeze-drying technique, where food is frozen and then placed in a vacuum chamber. In this chamber, the frozen water in the food undergoes a process called sublimation, where it transforms directly from a solid to a gas, without passing through a liquid state. Which means, no more rotten produce at the bottom of your refrigerator or running out of fresh ingredients in the middle of making dinner. 

This process leaves behind freeze dried foods with an extended shelf life while retaining their original taste and nutritional value. 🍇

Which if you ask me, is the MOST amazing part - fresh fruits and vegetables that last YEARS!!  Um...YES!!

Here are some reasons why freeze dried foods are worth exploring:

1. Long Shelf Life: Freeze dried foods can last for months to years, making them an excellent option for building a well-stocked and long-lasting pantry.

2. Nutritional Retention: The freeze drying process preserves the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals of the fresh ingredients, providing you with nourishing options.

3. Convenience: Freeze dried foods are lightweight, easy to store, and require no refrigeration, making them ideal for busy lifestyles and travel.
