All Wholesome Farms the products are flash/quick frozen. Flash/quick freezing eliminates all the cellular structure damage that takes place in the typical freezing process. When water freezes, it crystallizes and expands into ice. By flash/quick freezing our products in temperatures -40 degrees and below, the product freezes so fast the water molecules do not have time to expand. This locks in all the nutrients and makes for a healthier and better tasting product, almost like they were never frozen. This process also extends the shelf life to two years as long as its kept frozen.
The best part is that the flash/quick freezing process makes the defrosting process fast too! Our individually portioned products and vegetable packs defrost in 10 minutes or less. Whether you like to meal prep in bulk or meal prep as you go throughout the week, our defrost times will help cut back the time you spend in the kitchen preparing so you stay on track with your nutrition goals.
Here are some defrost tips to get your meal prep started:
