What is Freeze Dried Food?

By adding hot water to the packed contents, after 8 minutes, fresh, hot, flavorful food  can be enjoyed. Freeze drying is a process wherein fresh food with wholesome ingredients is cooked using no machine processing or artificial additives. The freshly cooked food is then frozen at -20c eradicating harmful micro-organisms, It is then dried in Freeze Drying machines using vacuum by the process of sublimation. It is then quickly packed into mylar bags locking in freshness for long lasting flavors.

This process ensures that the taste, size, structure of the food is in no way degraded unlike other food preserving methods.

No added preservatives or processing methods are used in this process  ensuring absolute freshness and nutrition whenever the food pack is opened.

The Freeze Drying process is also used by NASA for even ensuring freshness, nutrition and health across years in space.
