Freeze Dried mixed vegetables are simple and convenient to prepare - just add water and serve. They are a healthful way to keep your vegetable intake up during the winter when fresh produce is not as readily available. Use these mixed vegetables to prepare pot pies, soups, stews or serve as a side with your favorite steak or chicken dish.
Nutritionally speaking, freeze dried fruits and vegetables are often superior to the â€œfreshâ€ ones you find in the supermarket. On average, food travels 1,500 miles from farm to grocery, taking up to two weeks to get there. At least one study found that food can lose up to 45 percent of its nutritional value in that time. And who knows how long it has been in the store when you buy it.
This is why buying freeze dried fruits and vegetables makes sense. Most are processed immediately after being harvested, when theyâ€™re at their peak ripeness and most nutrient-packed. Almost everyone can benefit from eating more vegetables, and increasing your intake is easy when you use this convenient mix already put together for you. With a 25+ year shelf life, they will be ready for you to enjoy even if the power goes out.
This vegetable mix of freeze dried/dehydrated products is perfect as an addition to stews, soups, casseroles, chilies, omelettes, baked potatoes, roasted potatoes or hash browns.
