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.

To find the most nutritious freeze-dried fruit option, do your research. There are some freeze-dried fruit snacks that are 100% natural and provide the same nutritional benefits as fresh fruit. Brothers-All-Natural Fruit Crisps are 100% real fruit; peeled, sliced and gently freeze-dried; all made with no added sugars, preservatives, or fats.
