This is what sets us apart from the rest. Quality and care you can taste in every meal!
Wholesome, home-cooked, and a taste of home in the wilderness, You'll never go back to anything else!... Unless you enjoy cooking over a fire, which we also do!!
Once cooked, the meals are the laid onto trays and into the freeze-dryer they go!
This is a three step process: First, the food is frozen to a temperature of -10F, then the air is sucked out of the chamber, effectively creating a vaccum, a low heat is applied, during which the water sublimates (goes from frozen state to vapor). The final stage is another drying phase with a slightly higher temperature to evaporate the smaller water molecules left. This process usually takes between 20 to 48hrs depending on the dish and its moisture content.
The advantages of Freeze-drying are pretty significant for cooked meals. It is more forgiving towards dairy products, nutrients and texture. It also cuts down the rehydration time by a lot! It is true though that not everything should be freeze-dried, for example dehydrated fruit snack are way better than their freeze-dried conterparts, imho.
