Production & Sourcing
Freeze-dried diced blueberries are made through a process called freeze-drying, which involves several steps to remove moisture while preserving the natural flavor, color, and nutritional content of the blueberries.
First, blueberries are harvested when they are ripe and at their peak flavor. They are carefully sorted to remove any damaged or unripe berries, ensuring only high-quality berries are used in the freeze-drying process.
The sorted blueberries are then thoroughly wash and cleaned to remove dirt and debris. Then they are diced into uniform pieces.
The blueberries are quickly frozen to very low temperatures. Flash freezing helps preserve the integrity of the fruit and prevents the formation of large ice crystals, which can damage the cell structure.
After being quick-frozen, the blueberries go through the freeze-drying process. At this stage, most of the moisture is removed through sublimation.
And you have your Freeze-Dried Diced Blueberries!
