Freeze-dried fruit is a healthy, convenient, and affordable alternative to fresh fruit and is becoming increasingly popular among all age groups. Freeze-dried fruit snacks are easy to take on the go; perfect for a lunchbox, purse, or backpack. Fresh fruit is only available in season and can spoil very quickly, whereas freeze-dried fruit has a very long shelf life and can be purchased all year long. So, what exactly is freeze-dried fruit and how are the nutritional benefits compared to fresh fruit?
Freeze-dried fruit refers to the process of removing almost all water content from frozen fruit. The removal of water occurs under a vacuum, and is the healthiest way to preserve fruit. During this process, the basic cell structure and nutrient composition remain largely unchanged, and the result is a crispy, light “fruit chip”. Although the freeze-drying process itself maintains the nutritional composition of the fruit, it is important to read product labels to ensure that no other ingredients have been added. It’s also important to note that all dried fruits are not the same; many varieties of dried fruit contain added sugar as well as preservatives, such as sulphur dioxide.
