Fruit is frequently referred to as "nature's candy" since it is tasty, nourishing, and sweetened with only natural sugars. The natural sugars found in fruit, which are a mixture of sucrose, fructose, and glucose, have unfortunately raised concerns since they are sometimes mistaken for refined sugars manufactured from sugar cane and/or sugar beets.

However, freeze dried fruit has been approved as acceptable for snacking, provided that you are aware of portion limits and choose the unsweetened version. Freeze-dried fruits have been repeatedly shown to retain nutrients. So what exactly are freeze dried fruits? Are they wholesome? Do they also maintain the nutrients of recently picked choices? Read on to find out more.

What is freeze-dried fruit and how is it made?

The fruit goes through sublimation, which causes frozen water to evaporate directly from ice to water vapor, removing 99 percent of the fruit's moisture without ever having to enter a liquid phase, making the freeze-drying process special. When fruit is placed in a vacuum chamber with a temperature below freezing, the temperature is gradually raised, causing the solid water molecules to become a gaseous state rather than a liquid condition. By doing this, the fruit's shape and nutritional value are both preserved.

Because they are picked during their peak season and immediately flash-frozen or freeze-dried to preserve all of their beneficial nutrients, a freeze-dried fruit is more nutrient-dense than their fresh counterparts.

With the exception of fiber and vitamin C, which are found in the fruit's cell walls and skin and are swiftly degraded in water, a freeze-dried fruit retains the majority of its nutrients. Additionally, because freeze-dried fruits are already bursting with flavor, no added sugar or flavorings are necessary to enhance the flavor.

Benefits of consuming freeze-dried fruits

  • Taste- Fruit is inherently brimming with flavor, and despite all the processes it goes through, freeze-dried fruits still manages to deliver a pleasing punch. You can, therefore, pair the same dishes you would with fresh fruit if you weren't sure what would go best with freeze-dried fruit.
  • Shelf life- Ingredients that have been freeze-dried are long-lasting. The advantage of freeze dried fruits, in general, is that, they can live in your fridge for quite a long time. How about making a delicious milkshake with some freeze-dried mango?
  • Travel friendly- Fruits that have been freeze-dried not only take up little room in your cupboard, but they're also light and portable, making them ideal for trips. For instance, freeze-dried smoothie packets are adaptable since you may take them straight from the bag as a snack or add them to hot porridge in the morning for a superfood boost.
