It’s been known for many years that the Freeze Drying process is better than canning, freezing, and dehydrating! The freeze drying process causes no damage to the nutrition of the food being preserved. Other food preservation methods like canning and dehydrating use higher temperatures that can destroy more than half of the food’s nutritional value. Also, the freeze drying process retains the aroma, flavor, color, shape and nutritional content, and does not shrink or toughen the food. You can freeze dry single simple ingredients and even every day meals:
- Use when you don’t feel like cooking.
- Pack in your box lunches to heat in the microwave at work.
- Use on your outdoor adventures! Perfect for camping, backpacking, and picnicking.
A home freeze dryer is a really good way to prepare for difficult and lean times, allowing you to easily preserve anything you eat. And, the food will taste great and retain nearly all of its nutritional value for up to 25 years when the food is stored and packaged properly.
Less Food Waste
If you’re like many of us, we feel guilty when we throw away unused leftover meals, over-ripened fruits and vegetables, and other foods that spoil before we get around to using them. Eliminate the guilt! Freeze dry your leftovers, fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, and dairy items. Confidently squirrel it away until you are ready to use it! Now, you and your family can avoid food waste and preserve large quantities of high quality food that would normally be tossed out in the garbage.
Special Dietary Needs
The home freeze drying process is ideal for any special diet or nutritional need(s) which can be of concern to folks wanting to store long term foods for emergencies. Common dietary concerns that can be eliminated by home freeze drying your own food include:
- Organic, non-GMO ingredients
- Vegetarian and Vegan-friendly
- Food allergies and ingredient concerns
- Elimination of preservatives and processed foods
- Clean, whole, raw foods
Prepackaged, processed meals often include unhealthy additives (i.e., sodium nitrate, high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, food dyes and colors). When you freeze dry at home, you are assured of the foods that you and your loved ones will be consuming.
