Nowadays blueberries might be considered a mixture of tradition and modern lifestyle. They were considered a delicious snack for many years – blueberry jam is an amazing companion to a warm toast for breakfast, jellies are loved for dessert and baked goods, such as muffins, pies or cupcakes are always made better with their addition. On the other hand, blueberries are now widely recognized as a rustic superfood, due to their amazing phytochemical composition!

What is freeze-drying?
Freeze Dried Fruit is dried at reduced pressure so very low temperatures can be used. As a result the fruit keeps a flavour profile and nutrient values very similar to fresh fruit. The process also reduces the moisture content almost to zero so freeze dried fruit works very well in confectionery, chocolate, fudge, icings, frosting, baked goods and as decorations and snacks.
Why should I choose freeze-dryied products?
When using freeze-drying, there is no need to use any chemicals or preservatives, and virtually 100% of biologically valuable substances of products are saved. For example if drying usual way the remaining amount of vitamin C is only about 40% when freezing is up to 85%, when freeze-drying – 98%. Another advantage of freeze-drying – the raw material retains its original shape, and the texture becomes specific, crispy and fluffy.
For example, freeze-dried strawberry is a crispy berry, its size, colour and chemical composition does not change. However, it is 10 times lighter, because there is no water in berry which usually contains about 90% in strawberry. If strawberry submerged in water it re-hydrates and becomes like fresh unfrozen strawberry.For years freeze drying was used for space food and pharmaceuticals. But we bring it to people now to discover new, smarter and fully nutritious food they love!
