Freeze-dried desserts are excellent snacks to take with you. They are light, quick to prepare and perfectly suited to the needs of hikers, climbers, skippers and other hardy sportsmen. As well as being nutritious, they are a great way to end your meal with a sweet treat.
What is a freeze-dried dessert?
It is simply a dessert (compote, chocolate mousse, rice pudding, etc.) that has been prepared and then freeze-dried. Freeze-drying is a food preservation technique that consists of freezing and then dehydrating the food. Among the long list of freeze-dryable foods, we find the ingredients that make up desserts. These include chocolate, milk, fruit, nuts and many others.
Freeze-dried desserts are a perfect complement to freeze-dried main courses. Enjoying them is a way to end your meal with a feeling of sweetness. They are very nutritious and delicious. Apart from their irresistible taste, they are also ideal for all your outdoor activities. Indeed, for each activity, you can find the dessert that will give you the necessary nutrients. They provide you with the carbohydrate dose you need to boost your performance and compensate for your weaknesses.
It's the perfect snack to have when you have to spend more than four hours walking in the wilderness. You will find freeze-dried desserts to be rehydrated hot, such as rice pudding, and freeze-dried desserts to be rehydrated cold, such as crunchy creams, compotes or chocolate mousses. You will also find freeze-dried desserts that can be eaten dehydrated, such as Astronaut ice cream sandwiches
What are the advantages of freeze-dried desserts for outdoor enthusiasts?
Freeze-dried desserts are dehydrated and packaged in compact, lightweight packages that are easy to carry in your backpack. Indeed, when a food is dehydrated, it loses more than 80% of its weight.
This is an advantage that hikers, bikepackers and skippers do not overlook. In addition, thanks to their ease of preparation, they are the ideal snack to quell unexpected cravings.
Finally, freeze-drying preserves their taste and energy value. They are therefore delicious and nutritious desserts that you can enjoy once they have been rehydrated.
