Production & Sourcing
First, ripe strawberries are carefully selected for the freeze-drying process. The strawberries are washed, hulled (removing the green leafy top), and diced into small pieces of uniform size.
Then the diced strawberries are quickly frozen to preserve their freshness and nutritional content. The low temperature freezes the strawberries and maintains their natural characteristics.
The frozen diced strawberries are transferred to a freeze-drying machine. During this process, the frozen water content in the strawberries transitions from a solid to a gas state through sublimation. As a result, the water is removed from the strawberries, leaving behind freeze-dried diced strawberry pieces.
A secondary drying process is done to further reduce the moisture content of the strawberry pieces are content to extremely low levels.
And you have your Freeze-Dried Diced Strawberry!
