BEYOND FREEZE DRIED

NXTDRIED products are clearly superior to freeze dried products in terms of super-crunchy textures, brighter, more natural colours and intense fresh flavours. NXTDRIED’s proprietary dehydration processes preserve almost all the nutritional values and bio-actives of the fresh product. Equally important, NXTDRIED products have a far lower carbon footprint than freeze dried products.
