Raspberry Freeze-Dried Powder, 2 oz. Wild Harvested Berries
Ever since ancient times, long-term food preservation has been a matter of concern for mankind. Freeze-drying of fruits and other products goes back to the middle of the 19th century. Still, no one in the general public had heard of this preservation technique until the end of the 20th century. A common occurrence of this method, however, began at the beginning of the last decade.
The general idea is to remove almost all the moisture from the plant (vegetable, fruit) or meat products gently while avoiding damage to the fibers.
The freeze-drying process starts with flash freezing. It usually happens at a temperature of about 200° C (392° F) below zero. When the liquid in a berry turns into ice crystals under these conditions, it does not greatly increase in volume, as it does with a slower temperature drop. This allows you to preserve the integrity of the fruit structure and avoid mechanical damage, which in the end would only reduce the gustatory and nutritional qualities of the product.
Did you know?
Freeze-dried raspberry tea is a good sedative, which also relieves gastritis and enteritis.
Once that’s done, the temperature can be increased, gently and smoothly, to the highest point of 40° C (104° F). Along with heating, the air is pumped out of the container with the product to a full vacuum. This way, the water solidified as ice crystals can be removed, almost without passing into the liquid state.
Other advantages of the technique include:
- maintaining raspberry unique color, appearance, and even flavor;
- no negative consequences of standard freezing or dehydrating, such as loss of shape, vitamins, flavor, exposure to harmful components;
- longer shelf-life;
- environmentally friendly and chemical-free production.
Raspberries, including dried ones, are widely used as an ingredient in desserts. Ice cream, puddings, and even marmalade can all be made with freeze-dried raspberries.
Pancakes, fritters, patties, pastries
A popular use of the berry is as a filling for fritters or pancakes. Such a filling will be a pleasant surprise for anyone you want to serve this dish for. Besides, one can always use freeze-dried raspberries in patties and other pastries to make them a real treat on the dinner table.
Here, everything depends on the cook’s imagination and practical skills. Thus, you can put raspberries inside or use those as a cake decoration.
You can add raspberries to porridges, smoothies, or yogurts as well.
Confectionary and beverage toppings
Sprinkle raspberries on the top of confectionery products or use those in ice cream or various beverages. This way, you get not just delicious, but also a healthy topping.
