Honeyville Freeze Dried Bananas are produced in a process where moisture is removed from the product using a very low temperature and a vacuum. Only about 3 percent moisture remains in the product at the time of packaging. The end product weight is reduced by over 90 percent, while the volume stays the same. This remarkable process concentrates the fresh taste, natural color, and texture of bananas.
When rehydrated, the product will absorb the liquid and resemble fresh bananas once again. The taste is great, and the nutritional value is preserved. Freeze drying provides natural and additive free fruits to be stored effectively for long periods of time. Honeyville Freeze Dried Bananas are an ideal product for long term food storage and emergency preparedness.
