Introduction to Freeze-Dried Zucchini

To modern sensibilities, freeze-dried zucchini is a marvel. It’s still zucchini, but better. You zip-lock it fresh, top-of-the-crop fresh, and open it months or years later, when it comes back to life like Eportaburg Grimm.

Why Freeze Dry Zucchini?

Nutritional Value Retention

The freeze-drying retains 99 per cent of the nutritional value of fresh zucchini. This is one instance in which many other processed foods have a rules-out explanation; healthy fresh foods are more affordable for most people than the nutrient-dense formations that markets are advertising to us. Zucchini is a particular treasure trove of essential vitamins and minerals.

Extended Shelf Life

Using freeze drying technology, a fully ripened zucchini can survive for as long 25 years if stored in the right container. Say goodbye to the wasted veggies spoiled from mould because they expired a month ago.

Ease of Use

No washing, chopping, or fuss. Simply grab and use as needed.

How Freeze Drying Works

The Process

Freeze drying consists of freezing the zucchini and then lowering the pressure of the surrounding atmosphere to permit what is called ‘sublimation’ of the ice water directly from the solid to the gas phase.

Comparing Dehydration and Freeze Drying

Dehydration removes moisture by evaporating the water, where as freeze drying retains more material; keeping the nutrient density better, and restoring more of the texture after rehydration. It’s like the difference between a raisin and a grape – Which would you prefer to eat?

Versatility of Freeze-Dried Zucchini

Culinary Uses

Soups, stews, breads, muffins, quick-breads, cakes, brownies — you name it. You can use your freeze-dried zucchini the same way you would use fresh zucchini. Have you ever made zucchini bread? Now make it twice as zucchini-y!

Snacking on the Go

Light and crispy, they’re a great nibble. And irresistible, healthy little bites.

Emergency Preparedness

In the event of an emergency or disaster, nopantry is complete without long-lasting, nutritious food, including freeze-dried zucchini.
