3 Reasons to Give Freeze-Dried Fruit a Shot

Freeze-dried fruit is a healthy, delicious, convenient snack option for anyone interested in healthier snacking without giving up flavor.

If you’ve never tried freeze-dried fruit before, here are three great reasons why you should!

  1. Tastes like an apple, but snacks like a chip! If fruit is “nature’s candy,” then freeze-dried fruit is “nature’s chocolates!” With a texture that satisfies the need for a crunch, freeze-dried fruit explodes with flavor and natural sweetness that gives you energy throughout the day.
  2. Nutritious — Pure, freeze-dried fruit is literally just fruit. The freeze-drying process simply removes water from the fruit at a very low temperature, leaving behind the essence of the fruit in a crispy texture. The nutrients of the fresh fruit are retained in the form of a crunchy[AL2]  snack!   Look for brands that have no sugar added, and always check the ingredients to make sure it’s 100 percent natural.
  3. Convenient — Fresh fruit is wholesome and delicious, but not always the most convenient. Freeze-dried fruit, on the other hand, is a great choice, since it’s packaged in moisture-protected poly-bags that you can take with you wherever you go! Great for travel, school lunches, kids sporting events, hiking or any activity where fresh fruit might not hold up or get a little messy. Keep some in the car or toss in your purse, backpack or gym bag. With a long shelf-life, you don’t have to worry about freeze-dried fruit spoiling!
