WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT HERBS?
Over the years, herbs became widely used as an ingredient in cooking. Exhibiting a wide range of aromatic properties along with dietary, medicinal and ornamental benefits, herbs like oregano, basil, rosemary and thyme are used in cooking as a seasoning to bring in flavour and character. They are often used in Mediterranean cuisine specifically, in Italian dishes. These herbs can be used fresh or dried, depending on the recipe.
ADVANTAGES OF FREEZE DRIED TECHNOLOGY
Freeze drying is a low temperature dehydration process that helps retain 3 times more flavour and aroma in herbs than air drying processes. It also creates a lighter and crunchier texture for the herbs. Freeze dried herbs also have an edge over air dried herbs as it locks in 50% more nutrients and vitamins and has a longer shelf life.
