All about the freeze-drying process

I love freeze-dried foods. They’ve come a long way since the days of “astronaut ice cream”! This graphic explains the process and how nutrients are retained.

Are you a Thrive Life fan, too?

You can always tell freeze-dried foods from those that have been dehydrated because the former really do retain the same size, shape, and color as the fresh version. Dehydrated foods shrink a great deal once the water has been removed, and they lose a bit of color as well. Since the process begins very soon after the food is harvested, very few nutrients are lost.12310697_719941840652_1926909177660490602_n

    Vegan here….been catch’n trouble all my life…that is when I tell someone…I usually does share my eating preferences. I just eat selective items on the menus when I go out and then eat “the rest of the meal” when I am home. I love your quick meal ideas and freeze drying…if you come across vegan meals besides beans & Rice. It would be most appreciated…kindest Regards,SelinaO
