Industry-leading producer focuses on nutritional, flavor and ‘clean label’ benefits
MODESTO, Calif. (September 1, 2015)—Mercer Foods, the industry leader in natural and organic freeze-dried foods, published new information today that highlights the benefits of freeze-dried foods and favorably compares freeze-dry technology vs. other forms of food drying.
“During our 35 years of leadership in the food industry, we have gained tremendous knowledge and experience about the qualities of freeze-dried foods and their special characteristics,” said David Noland, CEO of Mercer Foods. “Though not always well-known to the layman, freeze-dried fruits and vegetables retain an unusually high percent of their original flavor and nutrient content. Importantly, this is accomplished without any of the infused or added sugars used by other forms of drying, and without sulfurs or artificial preservatives.”
