freeze-dried fruit: healthy tasty and practical

What is freeze-dried fruit?

Freeze-dried fruit is fruit that has been freeze-dried. The freeze-drying process, also known as freeze-drying, is a technique for removing water from fruit at very low temperatures. The fruit is first flash frozen and then the water in the fruit is removed as steam by vacuum. This process allows the fruit to retain its natural aroma, colour, shape and, above all, its nutrients. Freeze-drying is one of the most effective ways of preserving the quality of fruit for long-term storage.

Does freeze-drying lose all the nutrients in the fruit?

One of the most common concerns about freeze-dried fruit is whether it loses nutrients during the process. The good news is that freeze-drying preserves most of the nutrients present in fresh fruit. While some vitamins such as vitamin C may lose some of their content due to exposure to light and oxygen after drying, this loss is minimal compared to other drying methods such as dehydration at high temperatures. Protein, minerals and most vitamins remain almost unchanged, which means that freeze-dried fruit retains a high nutritional value.

Benefits of freeze-dried fruit

  • Preserving the freshness and flavour of the fruit: The freeze-drying process preserves the fruit''s natural aroma, colour and flavour. The fruit retains its original shape and texture, allowing it to be used in a variety of ways as if it were fresh.

  • Long-term storage without the need for refrigeration: freeze-dried fruit has a very long shelf life and can be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration or freezing. This is particularly useful for long-term storage and for use in emergency situations.

  • Easy transport and storage: Freeze-dried fruit is extremely light and compact, making it easy to transport and store. Because the water is removed, the fruit takes up less space and weight, ideal for travellers, hikers and anyone who wants to have a healthy snack on the go.

  • Reduced waste: freeze-drying allows the whole fruit to be used, as only the water is removed. This reduces waste as there is no need to discard parts of the fruit due to spoilage or deterioration.

How to store freeze-dried fruit?

Freeze-dried fruit is easy to store. As the water is removed, it does not spoil as quickly as fresh fruit. It is best to store it in sealed containers or bags to prevent moisture from getting in. Store freeze-dried fruit in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

If you follow these simple tips, freeze-dried fruit will stay fresh and edible for months or even years.

How can I use freeze-dried fruit?

Freeze-dried fruit is extremely versatile and can be used in many different ways. Here are five examples of how you can incorporate it into your diet:

  • Chocolate bars with freeze-dried fruit: Chocolate can be tempered to make chocolate bars, which can be topped with a variety of nuts or freeze-dried fruit. Freeze-dried fruit adds a pleasant crunch and an intense fruity flavour to the chocolate. For the preparation of chocolate bars, we recommend the BAMbastic pack of chocolates, where the basic chocolates are collected. The shape of the smaller droplets makes these quick melting and perfect for tempering.

  • Fruit powder for creams and biscuits: Freeze-dried fruit can be ground into a fine powder which can then be mixed into creams for cakes and biscuits. This adds a touch of colour and fruit flavour to our confectionery. Fruit powders are a great alternative to artificial colours and flavours.

  • A sweet addition to cereal: Freeze-dried fruit can be mixed into breakfast cereals. Both freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries can also be added to yoghurt or cottage cheese. This is a great way to enrich your morning routine with extra vitamins and minerals.

  • Healthy snack: Freeze-dried fruit is a great healthy snack in front of the TV or between meals. It is naturally sweet, crunchy and without added sugar or preservatives. So we can enjoy our snacks without guilt.

  • Decoration for confectionery: Freeze-dried fruit can be used as a decoration for cakes, biscuits or other confectionery. In addition to visual appeal, it adds a pleasant fruity taste and texture. Arrange it on top of your confectionery and impress your guests with its colour and flavour.

Freeze-dried fruit is an extremely nutritious, tasty and practical food that can be used in a variety of ways. It retains most of its nutrients, has a long shelf life and is easy to store and transport. These advantages are making it increasingly popular among those looking for healthy and practical nutritional solutions.
