WTF is Freeze Drying?

WTF is Freeze Drying?

How SYP products are made? 

Using freeze drying. But WTF is that?

Freeze drying, also known as lyophilization, is a dehydration process used for food preservation. 

It all starts with lost resources AKA fruit, veg & superfoods that are ugly or unsold. Did you know that it represents 20% of the harvest? Even though these resources are packed with nutrients they never leave the farms… so we decided to give them a second life!  

In the freeze dry process, they are flash frozen at ultra low temperatures (around -30°C). The pressure is then lowered in a vacuum chamber and the temperature is raised allowing the ice locked in the fruit or veg to sublime. This removes approximately 95% of the water present. The dehydrated product is then ground into blended SYP functional powders. 

Flavor and nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and fibers are 100% preserved without the use of refrigeration or freezing. 

All you need to do is pour the sachets in water, Shake Your Plants and you’re ready to SYP!
