Freeze-dried food  is a convenient way to preserve and store food.  Mountain House Food is well known for our tasteful freeze-dried selection of foods. They are easy to prepare, you just add hot water- and wait 10 minutes to enjoy a delicious meal. The process that Mountain House goes through starts with fresh or frozen foods. Then they are cooked and prepared the complete meal. After which the meals go through the freeze drying process and packaging process to ensure that they will last 25 years when stored properly. 

Mountain House Foods taste superior to competitive products because they actually start with fresh or frozen foods, then cook and prepare them, and finally freeze-dry them. All the goodness, flavor, and taste are locked in just if you had hand-made them yourself from scratch. In comparison, other food companies do not freeze-dry or cook their own foods. They blend the dry components of other companies and package them. Mountain House foods tastes as close to fresh, frozen, or better, as you can get. Backpackers, for example, consistently rate Mountain House Foods #1 year after year as the best tasting foods and ease of preparation.

What is it?

It has the same color as it did being normal out-of-the-carton ice cream. The taste may be slightly different, but that is to be expected when a product has been altered.  This space saving  altering process is called freeze drying. Among the commonly known FD food items is freeze-dried ice cream.


The Process

What is freeze drying and how does it work? 

It is a careful process in which air and moisture (the two contributors to food spoilage)  are removed from the food leaving behind the same flavors and smells. The freezing temperatures are  -50 įC and -80 įC. Freezing is only part of the freeze drying process. Drying the product comes next reassuring that the water is removed. With 98% of the water removed, foods have lost 90% of the original food weight.

Did you know that freeze-drying  was first developed during WWII?  It first began as a way to preserve medical supplies so they could be transported properly and not perish in the process, due to the lack of refrigeration. There are many other products that can be freeze-dried.

The freeze drying process. Freeze drying has several advantages over other food preservation methods. Frozen foods retain fresh flavor and nutritional value, whereas dehydrated and canned foods are shelf-stable, but high-temperature processing can degrade flavor, texture and nutritional content. Freeze drying combines the best of these two methods. It preserves freshness, color and taste similar to frozen food, while providing the shelf-stable convenience of canned or dehydrated food. Freeze-dried foods:       

  • Taste fresh FD foods retain virtually all their fresh-food taste and nutritional content. Freeze drying removes the water, not the flavor.
  • Look fresh FD foods maintain their original shape and texture, unlike dehydrated foods.  Just add water, and in minutes every fresh food detail returns.
  • Less weight FD foods have 98% of their water removed, which reduces the food's weight by about 9 times.
  • Stay fresh FD foods can be stored at room temperature, without deterioration or spoilage. This is because freeze-drying and packaging remove both water and oxygen - the two primary causes of food deterioration.
