Mangoes make clear winners when it comes to sweetness and flavour, and are an extremely popular and versatile choice for being a delicious ingredient in various recipes. Apart from being a tasty extravaganza, they are also a powerhouse of various nutritional benefits and minerals. Mangoes are extremely rich in Vitamin C, antioxidants and minerals, which makes them a great viable option for strengthened immunity, clearer skin and hair.
While Mango is the king of fruits, it can pose a challenge since it’s only available in the summer months in India. To solve this and enjoy the best quality mangoes all year round without worrying about seasonal availability and spoiling, thanks to the versatility provided by freeze dried mangoes. Freeze dried mangoes are the new trends to go for, and for good reason. Due to the process involved in freeze drying, Mangoes lose most of their water content through sublimation; they are structurally not affected by the process. Freeze dried mangoes, like other freeze dried fruits, can last indefinitely in the right conditions.
They can also prove to be a very useful and convenient option in order to add a tangy nutritious bite to your breakfast with a crunch.

Freeze dried mangoes can give a unique texture and application to their dishes and can be substituted for Mango in many instances as well.
