Did you ever bite into a snack so delicious you couldn't stop eating it? This can happen with a newly freeze-dried corn snack bursting with natural sweetness and taking the market by storm.

Why Is It a Bestseller?

We’re planting our ears and setting our sights on the popcorn-kernel guts of what makes this nugget-on-a-stick so popular.

Unbeatable Taste

The flavour is captured in the freeze-drying process which basically locks in the corn’s inherent sweetness. What that means, practically, is that practically all of the flavour remains in freeze-dried corn – more so than on any other dried snack I’ve tried. The result is something simply delicious.

Nutritional Benefits

Just because they’re snacks doesn’t mean they have to be unhealthy. Freeze-dried corn retains many of its nutrients: it’s full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, and makes for a low-calorie snack.

Long Shelf Life

Worried that your kernels might rot? Freeze-drying increases the corn’s shelf life, giving you longer to savour your crunch.

How Freeze-Drying Preserves Sweetness

The Science Behind Freeze-Drying

A lesson in science: the freeze-drying process involves freezing corn, then reducing the pressure around it, a process that enables the frozen water to sublimate, or pass from solid into gas directly, which helps to retain the corn’s original flavour and vitamins.

Difference from Regular Drying

Freeze-dryers avoid the use of intense heat as they do not require it for drying, and as a result they do not induce as much loss of flavour, nutrients or colour compared with traditional oven or sun drying methods. A freeze-dried snack is as fresh as it’s ever going to get.

Perfect Snack Anytime

Convenience

Flippin’ fantastic, you’re gonna love ’em! Whatever’s your pleasure… there’s one right here for you. Or are you in a hurry? Made to grab and go; they’re lightweight, too.

Versatility in Culinary Uses

Though a welcome treat by itself, you can use the sweetness of freeze-dried corn to give depth to things such as salads, soups and even desserts. Mix it into whatever you have at hand for added texture.

How to Enjoy Your Freeze-Dried Corn Snack

Raves for the novel snack are filling the air – ‘rich flavour and crispy snack, it’s so good and crisp, even better than popcorn.’

Conclusion

But the freeze-dried corn is much more than a trend. As an important instance of the modern science of food preservation, it preserves the natural flavours that the small mountain potatoes lack, and it avoids the greasiness of the potato chips. Plus, it is tasty, healthful and very versatile. So if you’re looking for a great snack, this bestseller is probably for you.
