Brothers All Natural Fruit Crisps are 100% all natural fruit. As a freeze-dried product, they provide the natural goodness of fruit with greater shelf-stability and without any preservatives or fats used in most dried fruits in the marketplace. Plus, freeze-dried fruit retains virtually all of the nutrition of the fresh fruit, including the natural enzymes.
The process of freeze-drying removes virtually all the water from foods while the basic cell structure and nutrient composition remain largely unchanged. Freeze-drying allows foods to be stored at room temperature for one year or longer. It also causes less damage to foods, such as shrinkage or toughening, than other dehydration methods which use heat. Flavors and smells also remain generally unchanged. Brothers All Natural freeze-dries to lock in the natural goodness of fruit while making eating fruit easier and mess-free. Plus, freeze-dried fruit retains virtually all of the nutrition of the fresh fruit, including the natural enzymes.
Just as healthy as raw fruit, freeze-dried fruit has all the same vitamins, minerals and fibre!
Freeze drying simply extends the shelf life of fresh fruit by at least two years, without the need for preservatives and chemicals.
