50 ways with freeze dried fruit

Freeze dried fruit is available as whole fruit, fruit mixes, chopped fruit nibs and powders. Freeze drying (lyophilisation) is a low temperature dehydration method that preserves the natural shape, colour and goodness of the fruit.


Our freeze dried fruit contains no added sugar, colourings, preservatives or additives, just 100% fruit! It'll keep for up to 9 months in the cupboard too (in our click seal bags) making freeze dried fruit so much more convenient than fresh fruit.

Great ideas. Will try the cheese straws and meatballs as a savoury twist. The powders make the best shakes…
