WHAT’S FREEZE DRIED?

Freeze drying foods is a process that removes 98% of the food’s water content, giving it a longer shelf life whilst retaining the flavour, colour and nutritional elements. Freeze dried foods are rich in antioxidants, potassium and fibre. 1 of your 5 a day, freeze drying fruit and vegetables has very little impact on its nutritional content and has all the goodness of fresh. Freeze dried fruits are a quick and convenient way of eating plenty of fruit and vegetables.  The Giving Tree range is perfectly suited to all ages and demographics. They are great for a paleo diet, or for athletes due to the light weight. Toddlers also love them and can either suck or chew (they easily dissolve).

WHAT’S VACUUM FRIED?

Vacuum frying is a process of putting food into a machine that pressurises and cooks it with the use of hot oil, but at much lower temperatures than traditional frying methods. Putting the process in a vacuum lowers water’s evaporation point. Food can fry at lower temperatures, absorbing less oil. Studies even indicate that vacuum-frying retains more nutrients than traditional frying.  Vacuum frying makes lower fat, more nutritious snacks, without sacrificing taste. We use 2% rice bran oil for our pumpkin and broccoli crisps. Rice bran oil is rich in anti-oxidants and also physterols (shown to lower cholesterol).
