- What is freeze-drying?
Cold drying (freeze-drying) uses advanced technology to remove the water content from a food while preserving all its organoleptic qualities. First, the food is flash-frozen, then placed in a vacuum that causes the ice to sublimate as water vapor. Once the water has been removed, the fruit and vegetables lose 85-95% of their initial weight. The process of drying food without heating it, prevents deterioration of : flavor, color, fiber and nutritional value are fully preserved. The final product can be safely stored at room temperature for several years. No refrigeration is required.
- What is erythritol?
A naturally occurring sugar alcohol derived from organic corn. It is found naturally in certain fruits (pears, grapes, melons), vegetables (mushrooms) and fermented foods (miso, soy sauce). It has a low impact on blood sugar and insulin levels (suitable for diabetics). Unlike sugar, it does not cause tooth decay. Some studies also suggest that erythritol may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Approved in vegan diets and organic standards. We like to use erythritol in our recipes because it has a fresh, sweet mouthfeel, which is a winner in a smoothie!

- Where can I find the products in grocery stores?
- Do you have samples?
- I missed my first try. How do I make the perfect recipe?
Put a cup of liquid in the blender container (see our recommendations in the product section of our website).
Next, make sure you add a good 3 tablespoons of powdered blend. If your smoothie is too dense for your taste, simply reduce the amount of powder in your spoons. If it's too liquid, do the opposite! Fill your spoons even more.
Add a few ice cubes and blend in a blender until all the ice cubes are reduced.
Pssst! Don't forget to close the bag tightly after use to prevent moisture from penetrating.
