Freeze Dried Meals for Special Diets
There are many reasons why someone might have to follow special dietary guidelines. For some, food allergies or food intolerance might force them to avoid certain foods, additives, or ingredients. For others, their lifestyle choices dictate certain foods to avoid or to eat sparingly. Freeze drying helps people who follow special diets to have more flexibility in their meal choices and to save time and money in the process.
Food allergies are a common reason for eating a special diet. Allergic reactions to food can be highly uncomfortable or even fatal if the reaction is severe enough. For someone living with food allergies, it can be hard to trust packaged foods or foods served away from home. With a freeze dryer, you can prepare snacks or complete meals from food that you know to be safe and save them for up to 25 years. Everything from peanut-free trail mixes to dairy-free soups are simple snack and meal ideas that can support special dietary needs.
Autoimmune diseases, such as Celiac Disease or Type 1 Diabetes, are lifelong challenges for many people, and adhering to special diets is a daily necessity. Most processed foods contain additives, preservatives, or ingredients that make them harmful or unfit for people with autoimmune diseases to eat. Our customers with dietary restrictions will often prepare multiple meals at a time to freeze dry and keep on hand for when they need a quick meal that’s guaranteed safe to eat. Gluten-free, ketogenic, DASH, simple carbohydrate, and many other types of diets are all more convenient to follow with a home freeze dryer.
Dieting is often a way to support the type of life we choose to live. Whether you choose to follow a special diet for ethical, environmental, personal health, or religious reasons, it always takes planning and preparation to eat well. Vegetarian, vegan, and pescetarian diets all rely heavily on fresh, whole foods to create meals. With a freeze dryer entire meals and whole food ingredients can be preserved and kept fresh for up to 25 years. Fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, grains, and more can all be kept fresh with a freeze dryer.
Whatever diet you choose to implement in your life, snacking is always something that must be done responsibly for good health. Processed foods are hard on the body, and can lead to serious health problems. With a freeze dryer, salty potato chips can be replaced with delicious freeze dried vegetable chips. Sugary candy is easily passed up in favor of freeze dried fruits, which taste every bit as good as fresh fruit, but they are easy to pass around or take on the go. Freeze-dried yogurt drops are a favorite among kids and adults. With a home freeze dryer, snacks don’t have to derail a sensible and healthy diet.
