Freeze-dried apricot pieces
Our apricot pieces are made from 100% ripe, freshly frozen apricots. Due to a particularly gentle freeze-drying process, the natural fruit-typical properties such as colour, smell and taste are preserved. The apricot pieces are yellowish and taste sweet and aromatic. The bite-sized pieces of apricot are 2-5mm in size and are therefore perfect for mueslis or other bowls.
Freeze-dried apricots – What’s so special about them?
Did you know that even half a handful of freeze-dried fruit counts as a serving of fresh fruit? This can be attributed to the concentration of our freeze-dried fruits. In addition, they can be kept for a long time without refrigeration, convince with their almost unchanged ingredients, their delicious taste and are nevertheless free of additives.
How does freeze-drying work?
Freeze-drying is a particularly gentle preservation process. Our fruits are frozen directly after harvesting and then filled into a vacuum container. The resulting negative pressure causes the water to escape in the form of water vapour at sub-zero temperatures. The special thing about this process is that the intensive aroma, the natural colour and the high content of natural ingredients – including all vitamins – remain almost unchanged. And all this without adding any additives.
What is the best use for freeze-dried apricots?
The whole pieces of freeze-dried apricots are great as a snack, but like the freeze-dried powder they are also versatile in the kitchen. For example, in mueslis, yoghurts, desserts, porridges, baked goods or in smoothies, lemonades or teas to give the drink a fruity note.
What is one of the biggest advantages of freeze-drying?
Because the water content of freeze-dried fruits is so low, they have a very long shelf life if stored correctly. Therefore, for long shelf life, it is important that they are placed in an airtight container as soon as possible after opening, which should be in as cool and dark a place as possible. This makes freeze-dried fruit a practical alternative when fresh produce is not in season.
