Our products are made using a combination of freeze-dried and dehydrated ingredients. When developing recipes, optimal taste, texture and cost are considerations for best use. Expensive ingredients like meats, asparagus and other costly vegetables used are generally freeze-dried. Other ingredients such as apples or onions actually taste better dehydrated. By utilizing both freeze-dried and dehydrated products, we offer products that taste fresh once they are reconstituted. Besides tasting better, our products offer good nutritional value at a reasonable price.
