In our first and second articles we discussed why freeze dried food is so much healthier, easier, and smarter than using other methods such as canning or dehydrated food. There is really no competition against freeze dried food. Going this route will save you money, time, effort, and on top of that give your family better, healthier, and longer protection. With the mindset of taking care of your family, you naturally want to give them the best protection available and ensure that there will be healthy meals available regardless of where you are and how long you are there. We already discussed the fact the freeze dried food is actually much lighter to carry since all the moisture has been removed.
And the fact is, that in canning, 40% and up to 60% of the nutritional value is lost which is a huge drawback for that method. What about dehydrated food? Nope, 40% of the nutritional value is lost and it also uses a lot of sodium. Even frozen foods have an awful nutrition loss of 40 - 60%. All 3 methods end up having their taste, color, and texture different than fresh food. Not good and we agree that these 3 methods are a big no no.
In contrast, only 3% of the nutrition value in freeze dried food is lost and 97% of the nutritional value is PRESERVED for up to 25 years to even 30 years or more. Just think about that for a second. If you were going to do the canning method which only lasts 3 years, you would have to start a new batch of food 10 times over, for the next 30 years, just to maintain your emergency stock. 10 times the effort and 10 times the cost. Is that really worth it? With freeze dried food you make it once and that is it.
Today we would like to show you how easy it really is to make your own freeze dried food. You can actually cook your own meal and then freeze dry it.
Here is another example. Freeze dry and rehydrate a ham dinner.

P.S. If you rather just buy freeze dried food than make your own then you should read about the supplier that left the competition in the dust.
