When it comes to backpacking and spending nights out on the hills – there’s no better morale booster than a good hearty, tasty meal.
Freeze dried food is where it’s at if you want to save space and weight in your pack. Essentially, it’s food with the moisture sucked out of it – of which you then replace at camp.
Such meals can be iffy in their quality, taste and nutritional value and there’s no shortage of companies out there that claim to have the tastiest meals. Often you’ll find some meals in a range fit the bill and score top marks – and at other times, they are bland in flavour and just do not live up to their supposed description.
It’s a bit hit and miss in all honesty and even then it can be subjective to taste. Even so, you can’t deny quality of ingredients, preparation and taste when it comes to good food.
I’ve been fortunate enough to test some of up and coming Fuizion’s freeze dried range of meals. The diversity in flavours and ingredients they offer is apparent when you take a look at their website menu.
Fuizion are professional caterers who’ve begun branching out into the freeze dried food market – albeit with a difference.
And I have to say – on initial taste testing, they do not disappoint! They may cost slightly more than other well-known brands such as Expedition Foods and Mountain House – but my golly! You get what you pay for.
Anyway, I’m off now to test some more of their range and will be back next week with a more in-depth report on the food and the company- including a video….
The photo’s shown here of one product were taken on my mobile phone. The image showing the food freeze dried in it’s pouch is the Kung Po Chicken
