ADVANTAGES OF FREEZE-DRYING

MINIMAL PROCESSING

As consumer values have shifted towards healthier and more natural options, the demand for real, high-quality food sources has increased significantly. In response to this growing trend, freeze-dried foods have emerged as a popular choice for clean eating.

MARKETING LEVERAGE

Freeze-dried fruits and vegetables offer a convenient and nutritious option for health-conscious consumers. Brands can leverage the marketing angle of ‘real food’, to make verified serving claims that appeal to Australian consumers.

HEALTHY & NUTRITIOUS

Freeze-drying retains essential nutrients and vitamins in food products, ensuring consumers are getting fresh, whole foods in their diet. This method of preservation is gaining popularity among health-conscious businesses and consumers who value preservative free whole foods.

REDUCES FOOD WASTE

Odd-shaped, or ‘ugly’ fruit and vegetables are often thrown away. When we throw out food, we’re also wasting other resources used to grow, transport and produce the food, such as water, energy and fuel. By freeze-drying fruit and vegetables, we can reduce wastage and its environmental impact.

What foods won’t we freeze-dry?

At Inspired Ingredients, food safety is our top priority and we take it very seriously. To ensure the safety of our customers, we do not offer custom freeze-drying services for products that carry a high risk of cross-contamination or allergen exposure.
