The Giving Tree Snacks has created a healthy and delicious range that the whole family can enjoy. Their special freeze drying and vacuum frying process means that 100% of the nutrition remains intact. Preservative free, all natural, these snacks are guilt free and delicious.
Vacuum frying is a process of putting food into a machine that pressurises and cooks it with the use of hot oil, but at much lower temperatures than traditional frying methods. Putting the process in a vacuum lowers water’s evaporation point. Food can fry at lower temperatures, absorbing less oil. Studies even indicate that vacuum-frying retains more nutrients than traditional frying. Vacuum frying makes lower fat, more nutritious snacks, without sacrificing taste. They use 2% rice bran oil for our pumpkin and broccoli crisps. Rice bran oil is rich in anti-oxidants and also physterols (shown to lower cholesterol).
