Organic Freeze Dried Food

Updated on February 14, 2013

Do You Want Freeze-Dried Food And You'd Prefer It Organic?

That's what I would like in an ideal world... that I could have a store of freeze-dried foods for camping trips and emergencies, and that much of it would be organically grown. For now, I've only been able to find certain categories--fruits, coffee, baby food, aloe vera, and pet food most noticeably--that do have items that are both ORGANIC and FREEZE-DRIED.

When I went to do the research at Amazon, I typed in: organic freeze dried food. I was pleased when 362 results came up, but when I started checking individual product listings, I discovered that not everything was both freeze-dried and organic. This has to do with the way searches are done there. You just have to check the text on the pages. So, being a librarian, I love to do this sort of thing, and I have found a number of freeze-dried organic food items that are listed below. Do take a look!

You Can Get Coffee This Way!

This is a good coffee for everyday use. Also, if you need your emergency supplies, you may be glad to have coffee on hand! Several of the reviewers ran taste tests and liked this even better than the home-ground coffee they had been making!

Here I list the regular coffee in two sizes and the decaf in one size:

Mount Hagen Organic Freeze Dried Instant Coffee, 3.53-Ounce Jars (Pack of 6)
Mount Hagen Organic Freeze Dried Instant Coffee, 3.53-Ounce Jars (Pack of 6)

This is very popular, with dozens of favorable reviews.

 

Just how important is it to get your freeze-dried foods in organic versions?

The answer to this question is really a personal matter. It's a good idea to have some freeze-dried foods around, and if they can be organic that is a plus. But if organic isn't available, don't let it stop you from doing some stocking up.

I like to have things on hand for a variety of reasons... you never know what unexpected house guests will want to eat, for one thing. Or if you live, as I do, in a place were winter sometimes brings icy roads for days on end, it's mighty nice to have plenty of food on hand. Earthquiakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes can be unwelcome surprise events, depending on where you live.

A benefit of freeze-dried food is that you can keep some in the trunk of your car. Many of the freeze-dried fruits, for example, make easy snacks if you are delayed. There aren't too many foods that you can keep in your car over the winter.

Here are the peas I started the page with.. - For snacking or cooking

This is a six-pack of organic peas, in what they call frustration-free packaging. Wheat-free and gluten-free, these are just peas with the water taken out when they were freeze-dried.

Organic Freeze-Dried Fruit is One Category with Lots of Choices

Here are mangos, papaya, bananas, even blueberry powder!

Dog or Cat Organic Pet Treats

Whole Life Pet Single Ingredient USA Freeze Dried Chicken Breast Treats Value Pack for Dogs and Cats, 21-Ounce

      This is very useful. The thing about freeze dried fruits and vegetables is that they can be healthier than fresh, because they are often processed as soon as they are picked, and the procedure doesn't destroy nutrients, unlike hours of transport and lying on supermarket shelves. And they are so convenient.
