"No matter how you enjoy your outdoor experience, the next meal is always something to look forward to. Lightweight, convenient and easy are priorities and we have those nailed. But Trek’n Eat goes a step further in making sure you luxuriate in every nutritious, refuelling, lip-smacking bite. Unappetizing preservatives, artificial colourings and flavour enhancers are never put into the bag.
The high quality Trek'n Eat products are made in Germany, are waterproof and resealable and simply delicious.
Trek'n Eat Meals are packed in a nitrogen atmosphere because moisture and oxygen will spoil foods and cause them to oxidize. Since the moisture content of freeze-dried and dehydrated foods is very low, the risk of spoilage by moisture is very low. But the oxygen in the pouch must be replaced. This is done by first evacuating the pouch and then filling it with pure nitrogen before it is sealed. Nitrogen accounts for about 79% of the air we breathe and is entirely safe for foods. This produces a so-called inert atmosphere. The purpose of packaging foods in a nitrogen atmosphere is to prevent oxidation of some of the ingredients contained in the foods.
Trek'n Eat meals are created with quality freeze-dried ingredients, and thus maintain most of the food‘s natural vitamins and minerals. Few flavour enhancers and flavourings are used in the creating of Trek'n Eat foods - this also makes the pot easier to clean. Trek'n Eat foods have a high calorie count and are packaged in waterproof, expedition-ready containers.
Freeze-drying is a technical drying process which takes advantage of water‘s unique physical characteristics. In a vacuum chamber, frozen water transforms directly from a solid state into gas. Freeze-dried meals are made by instantly freezing foods and then drying it in a vacuum chamber. In this manner, the water within the food does not melt; but is removed as steam. All that is required to restore the food is hot water. The light weight, simple preparation and fuel savings have caused mountain climbers, expeditions and trekkers to embrace freeze-dried foods-which are quickly becoming a part of all outdoor activities."
