Are you looking for the convenience of packaged foods without all the nutritional loss or chemicals that comes with it?
The THRIVE food line provided through Shelf Reliance is essentially a freezer dried food preservation system that protects the nutrients in grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, and meats (all the basic food groups) without any added chemicals, additives or preservatives. Ingredients are flash frozen and then vacuum dried and finally sealed in moisture proof cans. Both dehydration and freeze drying remove the moisture from the food. Freeze drying gives the food an even longer shelf life than dehydration because it also preserves the cell structure and nutrients.
This method of preservation extends the shelf life of these basic foods, making it extremely convenient to have on hand to add to your everyday recipes without having to rush to the store for a missing ingredient. Most THRIVE products have an optimal sealed shelf life of 10-20 years (some are as high as 30+ years) and an opened shelf life of 6-18 months. When you replace the water, the foods regain their original fresh flavor, aroma, nutrients, texture and appearance.
The fruits are so versatile to throw in kid’s backpacks or diaper bags. Pure fruits with no added sugars or preservatives that can be taken on the go! The vegetables are great too as they are already cleaned and chopped for you, not to mention no waste of rotten fruits and vegetables at the bottom of your fridge. Saves time and money!
THRIVE fruits and vegetables can also be rehydrated and blended to create fabulous smoothies and baby foods that are all-natural, healthy, and bursting with flavor.
