Pumpkins and early evening sunsets illuminating the skies with bursts of turquoise and pink. It can only be autumn holidays in England;
Freeze dried fruit is a new category in England, we are so used to eating dried fruits for such a long time. What are the differences? Which one is the healthiest for a snack?
Freeze dried Fruits VS Dried fruits
In one hand the freeze drying is the process of removing almost all of a fruit’s water content. The benefits? Freeze dried fruit is surprisingly nutritious. Antioxidants found in fresh fruit are maintained through the freeze drying process and freeze dried fruits are packed without added sugar.
Freeze dried fruit is a convenient way to get your necessary amount of fruit on a day-to-day basis and it is often very cost effective. Freeze dried fruits do not take up a lot of space and they tend to be the fruit of choice for people who enjoy outdoor activities.
On the other hand dried fruits are fruits that have had almost all of the water content removed through drying methods. The fruit shrinks during this process, leaving a small, energy-dense dried fruit.
They are delicious and nutritious but fruit tends to contain significant amounts of natural sugars. The reason is because the water has been removed from dried fruit, this concentrates all the sugar and calories in a much smaller package.It’s often hard to find dried fruit that hasn’t been processed with added sugar.
