What does freeze drying involve?
All of the fruit is allowed to ripen naturally before being picked, to ensure the best flavour possible. It is then frozen, before being placed in a vacuum where the ice in the fruit turns into vapour. This process is superior to other drying methods such as spray drying as it only removes the moisture from the fruit, the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and flavour of the fruit are all preserved. 10kg of fresh strawberries go into every 1kg of strawberry pieces, 5kg of fresh bananas are used to produce every 1kg of banana pieces. One 8g serving of strawberry powder would account for a standard 80g serving of fresh fruit which is widely regarded as the necessary weight for one of your five a day
What fruit is used for these pieces?
Our bananas are sourced exclusively from South America. Our strawberries are sourced from Europe, Africa, South America and Asia. The gentle freeze drying process preserves the characteristic flavours and colour of the fruit, as always, our fruit is entirely free from GMOs.
