How do I prepare my freeze dried food?
The process is as simple as you'd imagine. The obvious difference between freeze dried food and regular food is that freeze dried doesn't have water in it. So, with that in mind, all you need to do is add the water back in and you'll have regular food.
Each food varies in how long it takes to rehydrate. Fruit is easy, and it should only take a few minutes to return to its original consistency. Harder foods, like rice, tend to take a little longer. Using hot water will speed up the process and bring the food to eating temperature. For those reasons, it is recommended to use hot water when preparing soups. In hot water, the soup should only take about 10 minutes to reach it's full hydration level and thickness.
You may find yourself in a situation where you don't have access to either an electric or a gas stove. In those cases, you'll want to prepare a backup plan. You can read more about emergency cooking techniques here. Our recommended backup method is emergency fuel.
What makes freeze drying so good?
Water is the main reason food expires when it's not stored properly. The water enables certain chemical reactions to take place, thus changing the quality of the food. Because the benefits of removing water from food were obvious, dehydration and freeze drying have become more and more popular throughout the years. Modern processes have advanced both techniques greatly, giving dried foods a long shelf life. This has been a great advancement in long-term food storage.
Even during the drying process, water can continue to damage food. This is one reason freeze drying has gained popularity over traditional dehydration. In freeze drying, the water is first frozen, as the name implies. This helps preserve the food in its natural shape and quality. After this, the food is put under pressure and dried. In this condition, the ice goes directly from the solid phase to the gas phase, allowing it to quickly escape the food without harming it. This allows the nutritional qualities, shape, and texture of the food to be protected and preserved for your eating enjoyment.
