5 facts on Freeze Drying:
•Most people already consume freeze dried goods - the largest freeze dried product in the world is instant coffee but many food products like cereals now include freeze dried fruit.
•In the USA freeze dried fruit and vegetable snacks are very popular and are already in every supermarket
•Freeze dried fruit maintains its taste and essential nutrients - all that’s been removed is about 85-90% of its weight which was water. Nothing else is added.
•Freeze dried fruit and vegetables have a great fresh taste and have a much longer shelf life so reduce wastage
•Freeze drying works by freezing and then reducing the surrounding pressure to allow the water in the product to change directly into water vapour - the result is great fresh tasting fruit and vegetables which make the perfect healthy snack.
