Freeze dried sweets are trendy treats that undergo a preservation process, originally invented by NASA for austronaughts (hence SpaceSweets) using freeze dryers.
This process involves freezing the sweets and then removing their moisture through a vacuum, leaving behind a lightweight, crispy, and crunchy version of the original treat.
Freeze-drying preserves the flavor and nutritional content while extending shelf life - to around 25 years. These snacks retain their taste and often have a unique texture, making them popular for hikers, campers, and space travel due to their long-lasting, lightweight, and convenient nature.
They can include fruits, candies, or even ice cream, offering a flavorful and portable snack option.
