Astronaut Foods is the original source for freeze-dried astronaut ice cream & freeze dried nutritious fruits, our unique snacks have been on this planet since 1974.
Freeze-dried foods have been aboard NASA missions since the early Mercury Missions. since then, adults, kids & preppers have been loving this emergency food treat.
So, what exactly is astronaut food? It’s simple: freeze-dried ice cream is real ice cream!
We use the process of lyophilization, commonly known as freeze-drying, to turn the ice cream you know and love into something truly special. Lyophilization removes 98% of the original water content, and the result is a crunchy, creamy sweetness that melts in your mouth.
We use the same process to freeze dry fruits, which brings out the sweetness and adds an unexpected crunch to nature’s candy. Best of all, the freeze-drying process allows fruit to retain all of its nutrition!
Since the very beginning, all of our products have been proudly made in the USA
