What is freeze drying?
THRIVE freeze-dried products are flash frozen, sublimated, and packaged to remove as much water as possible, all without sacrificing quality or nutritional value. These foods last longer and are healthier than foods that are simply dehydrated. Though both processes remove significant amounts of water from perishable food items, the speed of freeze drying locks in existing tastes and nutrients that would be lost during dehydration. Additionally, since freeze drying removes a greater percentage of water than dehydration, the shelf life of freeze-dried food increases by several years.

Temperature: Storing THRIVE at a high temperature can significantly increase the speed that calories and vitamins will degrade over time. In the correct storage container, low-moisture foods such as THRIVE can be stored at room temperature or cooler (75 degrees Fahrenheit or lower) and remain nutritious and edible for years. Our stated shelf life assumes that the product will be stored in optimal conditions.
Humidity: The effects of humidity on a closed can are caused by heat and very similar to the effects of high temperature (see above). High humidity can corrode the cans and in some cases even cause the cans to leak. Areas with high humidity can reduce the opened shelf life of the product. As humidity varies with location please use your own discretion to prevent possible sickness from eating spoiled food.
Damaged Container: Minor dents in the center of the can are usually just a cosmetic issue. However, a can that has been dented near or on a seam can have a compromised air-tight seal and allow oxygen to enter the can. If this is the case we recommend using the dented can within the specified opened shelf life, rather than closed.
The best way to maintain the highest quality of your THRIVE products is to take care of them. If you intend on storing your food for the sealed shelf life, store the cans in a place that is not open to elements such as water, light, and air. Take care of it. Don't expose it unnecessarily to the elements. Also, be sure to keep the temperature and humidity low and even. Under these proper storing situations your THRIVE will maintain its delicious taste, natural coloring, and proper nutrients.

I have noticed that some cans of freeze dried fruit (of the same variety) tend to be sweeter than others, kind of like when you choose fresh fruit. I have to say that the apricots were bitter and had very little flavor. I was very disappointed. I will try to bake with them...maybe mix them with the peach slices??? Will not buy again.
Apricots are not my favorite fruit, even fresh, but it is nice to have a can of these on the shelf for a change of pace from our favorites. They are great in oatmeal or in a trail mix. I haven't tried cooking with them.
They are yummy dry, but a bit sour. I am not sure if I would use them in anything other than just eating them dry.
Good, but tart
These freeze dried apricots were good, but tart for me. I used them in a homemade trail mix and they were better. I think they might be better in baked goods.
These are great dry.
My family harvests Apricots and there is nothing like fruit from the tree. I was surprised to find these compared. These FD apricots are incredible. Some pieces even have the skin on them which is full of nutrients. Great to eat dry. I absolutely love them.
I made a great turkey salad and everyone loved it. I have found the meats to be good in whatever I make.
I just wish there were more with lower sodium like the turkey.
