The story of Freezedry OÜ – about love for healthy food

Freezedry OÜ sündis armastusest tervisliku toidu vastu nii nagu kõik suured asjad võivad saada alguse juhusest ja vajadusest. Aastal 2011 otsis Freezedry OÜ asutaja Mermi külmkuivatatuid maasikaid jaekaubandusvõrgust, millele ei oleks lisatud suhkruid, et neid lisada täiendavalt nii müsli kui hommikusöögihelveste hulka. Otsingud luhtusid. Nii ei jäänudki muud üle, kui süveneda külmkuivatamise saladustesse ja õppida ise valmistama täiuslikult külmkuivanud maasikaid, millel oleks Eestimaa maasikate originaalne magus maitse ja lõhn. Tänaseks oleme esimene ja ainus külmkuivatuse tehnoloogiat kasutav tehas Eestis.

What can you use freeze-dried products for?

What is freeze-drying and how does it work?

Freeze-drying is the process of removing water from a frozen product in a vacuum environment using a phenomenon called sublimation – the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas state, without passing through the liquid state. This method minimizes cell breakage and preserves the shape, appearance, aroma, taste, and nutritional value of the product.

Why is freeze-drying necessary and where are freeze-fried products used?

Freeze-dried products are used in many different fields, the main one being the food industry, but also the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.
In retail, freeze-dried products are mostly used as healthy and delicious snacks.
Depending on the product and packaging, freeze-drying extends the shelf life of the product up to three years without any loss of quality. This makes the transport, storage, and use of freeze-dried products very easy.

What can be freeze-dried at the Freezedry OÜ factory?

It turns out that anything with a moisture content can be freeze-dried. The main articles are berries, fruits, and vegetables, prepared meals, concentrates, herbs, mushrooms, and sprouts. If it is a unique product for which we do not have data, there is always the possibility of “test” freeze-drying.

Freezedry OÜ product development

All Freezedry OÜ MEKI brand products are developed and manufactured in a production building located in Simuna, Estonia, Lääne-Virumaa.
The products are made in small batches, and by supervising the entire production process from start to finish, we can be sure of the quality and freshness of the products.
In product development, we combine Nordic flavors that have been tested for centuries, with innovative raw materials and production techniques.
In our products, we only use the highest quality raw materials from Estonia or elsewhere.
We intend to use only Estonian raw materials as much as possible, because that’s what we know, feel and love the most.

Freezedry OÜ’s beliefs are that food must be 

  1. tasty
  2. healthy
  3. preservative-free
  4. in addition to nutritional value, also provide positive emotion.
