This remarkable process concentrates the fresh taste, natural color, and texture of peas.
When rehydrated, the product will absorb the liquid and resemble fresh peas once again. The taste is great, and the nutritional value is preserved. Freeze drying provides natural and additive free vegetables to be stored effectively for long periods of time.
