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.

Sealed Shelf Life
*Shelf life based on optimal storage conditions.
I've used these in everything from potato soup to tuna salad and they are very good. Adds flavor and texture. I wondered how it would be in something cold like tuna salad, but I really can't tell too much difference from fresh cut. I've served it to guest and no one can tell. Saves me throwing out rotten celery and never having it when I need it. I highly recommend it for everyday use as well as long term storage.
Excellent quality product
Though chopped very small the celery always smells fresh and I regularly use it in cooking spaghetti, chile, soup and when baking chicken or roast.
I love the fact that this product is already chopped/diced!
I love the fact that this product is already chopped/diced! I don't know how many stalks of celery I have thrown away because I didn't use it all before it went bad. Not any more! This is great for salads, chili's, meatloaf, etc. and I only use exactly what I need. Easy to reconstitute also.
Very strong but good flavor. I used them in a stew and they were excellent. My family and I also just snack on these and they are great. Who knew that celery could actually be this good.
Great Product, a must have for anyone who makes soup
This celery has a strong flavor so don't use a lot of it in soups and tuna/chicken salad. Absolutely delicious.
I'm not so good at keeping fresh food in the fridge -- goes old before I can use it. This freeze-dried celery is perfect for me--it rehydrates fresh as though I cut it up myself (and I don't have to do any cutting)! Perfect for soups & salads!
Perfect for soups
I never have to throw away half a stalk of celery again. I never use it all when I am making soup and now I don't even have to chop it! Who knew I could keep celery on the pantry shelf and it would last longer than that in the fridge?
You saved my bacon!
I didn't have the celery on hand when I needed it for cocktail sauce. I re-hydrated some of the celery and you couldn't tell it wasn't fresh. I highly recommend it.
