Freeze Dried Watermelon Snack
Did you know that watermelons are 92% water? Here is another fun fact, watermelon is really a vegetable and not a fruit... and as a healthy freeze-dried snack, we just dare you to find anything that is just as delicious!
Freeze-drying preserves up to 95% of the nutrients of fresh fruit compared to other preservation methods like canning or air-drying (loss of 50% to 70% of nutritional value).
Freeze-dried fruits are rich in antioxidants, which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, promote overall health, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
Freeze-dried fruits are a good source of dietary fiber, which supports healthy digestion, and may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
Freeze-dried fruits have a long shelf life and don't require refrigeration. This compares to the much shorter shelf life of fresh fruit, which typically lasts a few days to a few weeks. This makes freeze-dried fruit an ideal snack option for people with busy lifestyles.
They can be easily added to a variety of meals and snacks, such as oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, or trail mix.
Freeze-dried fruit allows for better portion control, as it can be easily measured and consumed in smaller servings. This can help people manage their daily fruit intake.
This also eliminates waste since a portion can be consumed over one or more days.
