Freeze-dried foods are produced using a refrigerated vacuum system which removes the water from the product while maintaining the structure, color, and flavor of the piece. Freeze-dried
foods are especially suited to applications where particulate size and shape are important, such as instant soups, potato and pasta dishes, snack mixes, vegetable dips and dressings. The ease of reconstitution

degrade the food. These bags can also be used to re-hydrate the contents
with either hot or cold water.

there aren't any. If you don't know what corn or green beans look like,
product photos are not going to help. What we feel IS important for

Below is a sample photo of the Mylar packaging we are using. It will, of

the bulk of the product.
We are only packaging "single serving" sizes at this time.
When you look at the package sizes, they are in Ounces or Grams but the contents
of the package is a recommended "serving" (1/2 cup, cup, pcs.). Remember
when you buy "fresh" foods, you are paying for all the water that is in that
