  3.  Are our packaging products BPA free?

    Yes, all our cans and pouches are BPA free.

     

    FREEZE DRIED

    1.  What is freeze dried?

      Freeze-drying is a process that allows food to be shelf stable while retaining the maximum amount of nutrients. Freeze dried foods retain their original color, form, size, taste and texture. Whether eaten every day or saved for the future, THRIVE Freeze Dried products will taste great, stay fresh, and contribute to overall health.

    2.  How is it different from dehydrated foods?

      Dehydration changes the color and texture of your food as it heats the food in the process. Dehydration also doesn’t remove as much water as freeze drying, resulting in foods that weigh more and have shorter shelf lives.

    3.  How is freeze dried a better choice?

      Freeze dried foods last longer and are healthier than foods that are simply dehydrated. When rehydrated with water or any other liquid you choose, freeze dried products come back to their original state. They are ideal for simple snacking and inclusion in recipes. Because these foods are harvested and dried at peak freshness, you can have nutrition and great taste all year round.

    4.  So, how does freeze drying work?

      1. Freezing: The product is frozen (a necessary condition for low temperature drying).

      2. Vacuum: After freezing, the product is placed under vacuum. This enables the frozen liquid in the product to vaporize without passing through the liquid phase, a process known as sublimation.

      3. Heat: Heat is applied to the frozen product to accelerate sublimation.

      4. Condensation: Low-temperature condenser plates remove the vaporized liquid from the vacuum chamber by converting it back to a solid. This completes the separation process.

      WHY STORE FOOD?

      1.  Why store food?

        It is sometimes hard to imagine that one day we could find ourselves in a situation that would require us to rely upon the food we have stored in order to provide for our families.

        Reasons to Rely Upon Food Storage:

        • Natural Disaster

        • Terrorism

        • Labor Strike

        • Economic Depression

        • Drought

        • Crop Failure

        • Personal Tragedy

        • Civil Unrest

        • Unemployment

      2.  How do I start?

        Store the foods you like to eat.

        Build your storage at your own pace on the THRIVE Q where you can receive monthly shipments of the foods you want, at a price you determine.  There is no commitment and you adjust your monthly budget if your circumstances change.  I personally look at the “monthly specials” and put them into my monthly Q so I am getting the best deals possible.

        Here’s a great link that can discusses the “smart pack” to help you to get started.  Here’s a link of faq’s for the “smart pack”.
