Why Freeze-Dry

Freeze-drying has been around for decades and was initially developed to make transporting and storing food easier for those who live a busy lifestyle. The process preserves foods by removing 98% of the water content while maintaining over 90% of their original nutrients. This prevents foods from spoiling, while still maintaining most of the flavor, color, and texture. Freeze-dried foods can last up to 25 years when stored in a dry, cool place.


Veteran Dry Goods' gentle freeze-drying process never includes adding any artificial sweeteners, preservatives, or flavors, so when you receive your product it is in its purest form- 100% natural. 


Veteran Dry Goods' freeze-dried products are sourced from local markets and growers whenever possible- we never include any added sweeteners, preservatives, or flavors. This means that what you are eating is pure, fresh food. We're confident that you and your loved ones will taste the difference!

Freeze-drying maintains over 90% of the nutritional value of foods. Other methods of preservation, such as canning and dehydrating, use high temperatures that destroy much of the food value.
