Delicious, sweet, refreshing, freeze-dried Gala apple slices. These healthful treats are all-natural, no preservatives, nothing added. Once scrubbed, cored and sliced, they take a quick dip in a Kosher salt and water solution to stop the oxidation process. Then they go into the freeze-drying chamber for a rapid freeze down to -50°F and a gradual low temp vacuum process that pulls nearly all the moisture out of the apples, leaving a sweet, crispy, nutrient dense snack.
Over 97% of the nutrients remain intact with this method, which is far superior to dehydration method. Our apple slices are never exposed to high temps. Our freeze-dried apple slices don’t just keep their flavor, the sweet flavor is actually intensified due to the absence of water.
Before we core and slice our Gala apple slices, we thoroughly hand-wash them in a strong white vinegar and water solution, scrubbing away impurities, pesticides, and food-grade wax to the greatest extent possible. What remains is what nature intended for us to eat, a delicious, sweet apple with nutrient dense peel intact for maximum flavor and nutrient intake.
Once ~99% moisture is removed during the freeze-drying process, our Gala apples slices are packaged in the highest quality, authentic, 7-mil Mylar®, zip-top packages with Oxygen absorbers added to ensure your unopened product remains fresh and oxidation-free for decades. Mylar® with O2 absorbers is the most effective way to safely store your product until you are ready to enjoy. We then heat-seal the top of the bag to ensure you receive your delicious apple slices in perfectly safe condition, ready to enjoy or store.
When stored in a humidity controlled environment, out of sunlight, and away from high-heat, your unopened freeze-dried produce can last up to 25 years or longer. Once opened either use OR remove the desired amount and securely reseal the zip-top closure after squeezing the air out.
To rehydrate: place in a shallow bowl and cover with water or milk. Many customers love eating these right out of the bag.
