What does freeze-dried fruit mean?

Lyophilization is a super effective and most importantly natural process that preserves all the vitamins and minerals present in the fresh product, and in addition extends its shelf life . This process consists in quickly freezing the fruit or vegetable with the use of very low temperature (approx. -40 to - 50 ° C). Then, freeze drying is carried out, i.e. evaporation of ice crystals using reduced pressure, which eliminates over 90% of water from the food.

The phenomenon of lyophilization consists in the fact that the ice immediately turns into a gaseous state, omitting the liquid state phase, thanks to which the products do not lose any nutritional value during this process . They also retain their taste, color and aroma . The last stage is drying fruit and vegetables at room temperature under reduced pressure, which allows you to remove the remains of water, as well as any microbiological contamination.

This means that freeze-dried fruit and vegetables can be stored for a very long time while maintaining their best quality and freshness. Finally, let us add that freeze-dried fruit, despite its long shelf life, does not require the use of any preservatives or artificial additives. The freeze-drying process is a preservation in itself. Loss of water means that the product does not spoil and is fit for consumption for many months.

How to eat freeze-dried fruit?

Freeze- dried fruit can be, above all, a wonderful element of a nutritious breakfast . If you don't have fresh fruit, use freeze-dried ones. Add them to oatmeal, muesli, smoothies, yogurt, omelettes or pancakes . They are also great as a baking ingredient. They do not weigh down the dough and do not make it moist, thanks to which the final product looks fresh and tempting. To spice up your favorite drink, add freeze-dried strawberries, raspberries or blueberries to water or tea . Thanks to this, you will get an attractive, refreshing, colorful and sweet drink that you can serve to children as a healthy alternative to store-bought, sweetened with refined sugar and synthetically colored drinks. Freeze-dried fruit is also a very tasty and filling snack when traveling . Light and sweet fruits will give you energy during long walks, and in addition they are a much healthier snack than chips or a chocolate bar.

How many calories do freeze-dried fruits have?

Freeze-dried fruit, despite the fact that they reduce their volume during the freeze-drying process, have exactly the same caloric value as fresh fruit. Remember, however, that 100 g of strawberries picked straight from the bush is not the same as 100 g of freeze-dried strawberries. A handful of fresh strawberries weighs about 100 g and contains about 33 calories. A handful of freeze-dried strawberries is only 15 g, and their calorific value may exceed even 50 kcal.

From what age can children eat freeze-dried fruit?

Freeze-dried fruit can be given to babies as soon as they are ready to expand their diet, i.e. from about 6 months of age. Freeze-dried blueberries or cranberries are a valuable, independent snack for munching . They can also be added to porridge, pudding or jelly . For an older child, pack freeze-dried fruit in a school lunchbox or decorate porridge, muesli, omelette or waffles with them.

Are freeze-dried fruit better than fresh?

Freeze-dried fruit contains exactly the same amount of nutrients as fresh fruit. However, they are deprived of water, which makes them crunchy and their consistency is more like chips than fruit. Fresh fruit is valued for its juiciness and the ability to quench thirst on hot summer days. Freeze-dried plants are more suitable as a sweet snack or an addition to your favorite oatmeal, millet, yogurt, omelet or cake.

How to use freeze-dried vegetables?

Not only fresh fruit can be subjected to freeze-drying processes. Vegetables are also great for this, especially green leafy vegetables, beets and herbs .
