Freeze-dried food is made when frozen raw materials are placed in a refrigerated vacuum system and, without thawing, are dehydrated. The ice in the product is sublimated into water vapor. During the freeze-drying process, cell structure remains intact. This results in high-quality ingredients with the same color, shape, flavor, and nutrients of fresh product.
You can trust in the quality and supply chain of Van Drunen Farms' freeze-dried products. During the freeze-drying process, no additives or preservatives are used. This ensures shelf-stable ingredients that taste just like fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs.
Many ingredients are grown and processed on our own farm in Momence, Illinois, U.S.A. We can trace each product from seed to sale.
