Why choose freeze dried foods?
There is a direct correlation between moisture content and shelf life. The higher the moisture content, the
shorter the shelf life. Dehydrated food looses quite a bit of moisture–up to 90 percent! Home dehydrators may only remove 80% of the water in food, leaving it with a shorter shelf life. However, most top end dehydrated food will still maintain a shelf life of up to 15 years, and depending on the type of food, in some cases up to 25 years.
Freeze dried food is best to store for long-term. Freeze Dried Food has a shelf life 25 years or more. Cooler temperature helps lengthen shelf life. Store Freeze Dried food in a cool, dark and dry location when possible, which will prolong shelf life.
Prepare Freeze Dried Food for Eating
To prepare freeze-dried food, you add water and eat when rehydrated. Your food will taste so close to the original that you may not know the difference.
Freeze‐dried food maintains most of its nutrients throughout the process. Once rehydrated, the food is similar in nutritional value to its fresh counterpart. Dehydrated food only retains 60‐75% of original nutrients. Freeze‐dried food retains about 97% of it original nutrients.
Flavor is important in food. If it doesn’t taste good, why would we eat it? Both freeze‐dried and dehydrated food taste great, however freeze-drying preserves more nutrients. Freeze-drying keeps in the flavor, retains original texture, and maintains the natural aroma. Dehydrating food uses heat, which causes food to loose flavor, nutrients, and texture. Most people agree that freeze‐dried food wins the taste test.
