Why Freeze Dried Is Best
We’re big proponents of adding supplements to your diet. That’s because at Amazon Thunder, we understand the importance of adding as many beneficial nutrients to your diet as possible. Sometimes it’s not feasible to indulge in fresh fruit, no matter how much you’d like to do so. This is especially true when it comes to things like the acai or acerola cherry fruit as they are both somewhat “exotic” to North America. In addition, they tend to lose potency and break down quickly after being picked. For this reason, adding a supplement to your diet is often the only way to get your hands on them.
Not Created Equal
Not all supplements are created equal. As much as we’d like to believe that every supplement out there is a quality and well-produced product, the truth is that sometimes the manufacturer uses inferior methods to collect and store the fruit in question. Keep in mind that things like the acai berry and acerola cherry tend to lose potency if they’re allowed to sit around too long after being picked. For this reason, it’s important that you ask about how the fruit has been preserved.
When it comes to preserving all of the health benefits of food, not much beats freeze drying. When something is freeze dried, around 98% of the water contained within the food is removed. This helps to keep the food good for a very, very long time. Remember – astronauts taking freeze-dried food to space! This is a trusted and well-known method approved by the FDA for the preservation of food.
Now that we have that down, what exactly does freeze drying preserve? Does it really help keep food as whole and beneficial as possible, even without all of the water?
Supplements and Freeze Drying
When you’re considering investing in some powdered supplements for your diet, make sure the original item was freeze dried. It is generally agreed upon in the scientific community that freeze drying loses an incredibly small amount of vitamins or nutrients. For all intents and purposes, in other words, the supplement should have all of the health benefits of the original fruit. This holds true for the acai berry and the acerola cherry, too.
When you purchase a freeze-dried supplement, rest assured that you’re buying the very best quality available. Don’t wait if you’re interested in trying out a new supplement! Do your research and make the change now.
