Freeze-drying is a particularly gentle method of preserving fresh, harvest-ripe foods such as fruit and vegetables.

Freeze-dried fruits and vegetables maintain their nutrient density, colours and aromas without any progressive ripening process and allow you to benefit from these health advantages by adding water.

The process is particularly suitable for high-quality, aromatic foods that are sensitive to external environmental influences such as temperature and oxygen. Fruit and vegetables as well as herbs or even coffee are therefore ideally suited for freeze-drying.

Fruit and vegetables bought in supermarkets are usually picked before they are ready for consumption so that they can continue to ripen during transport. Enzymatic and/or chemical oxidation as well as wilting processes cause nutrient losses and especially vitamins and secondary plant substances are lost. Heat, light and oxygen accelerate these processes.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Higher nutrient content
  • Longer shelf life
  • Prepared in 30 seconds
  • Fresh taste
