Mountain House® is the leading brand of freeze dried food and has been the choice of backpackers, hikers, campers, and other outdoor enthusiasts for over 40 years.
Freeze drying is a gentle process of preservation, in which water is removed from food at relatively low temperatures and very low pressures. Because of the gentle drying conditions, the colour, flavour and nutritional profile of the freeze dried food is retained through the process. This means that freeze dried food tastes as close to fresh food as is possible, and is just as good for you.
The recipes contain no MSG or Maltodextrin to stabilise the meal, these are commonly found in dry blended meals.The energy gained from a Mountain House meal is released at a sustained level which makes the consumer feel fuller and invigorated for longer.
Just add water to the pouch to rehydrate - no pans required for any of our recipes. Mountain House products are also safe to eat dry or rehydrated with cold water and have a long shelf life.
