Back Country - Vegetarian - Freeze Dri Meals
Back Country Cuisine is easy to prepare and great tasting because of the features of the Freeze Dri process. This combines quick-to-hydrate, freeze-dried vegetables and meats with sauce mixes that have been processed to retain their natural flavours. The result is a delicious meals that can be prepared in the pack in 10 minutes with the addition of boiling water.
In the Freeze drying process, crystals of frozen ice in the food are sublimed (evaporated) to water vapour in a vacuum chamber. The result is a completely dry product that does not shrink during the drying process. When prepared for eating, the water quickly gets into the pores left by the ice crystals to give a juicy, tender food product.
After packaging, the food is heat-sealed in foil pouches from which all the air has been removed and replaced with nitrogen gas. This keeps the food safe and flavoursome for at least three yearswithought the need for preservatives.
