A vegetarian Italian style dish, served with Fettuccine in a creamy Alfredo and Mushroom Sauce.
Country Cuisine is easy to prepare and great tasting because of the
features of our Freeze Dri process. This combines quick-to-hydrate,
freeze-dried vegetables and meats with sauce mixes that have been
processed to retain their natural flavours. The result is delicious
meals that can be prepared in the pack in 10 minutes with the addition
of boiling water.
- In the freeze drying process, crystals of
frozen ice in the food are sublimed (evaporated) to water vapour in a
vacuum chamber. The result is a
- completely dry product that does not
shrink during the drying process. When prepared for eating, the water
quickly gets into the pores left by the ice crystals to give a juicy,
tender food product.
- After packing, the food is heat-sealed in
foil pouches from which all the air has been removed and replaced with
nitrogen gas. This keeps the food safe and flavoursome for at least
three years without the need for preservatives.

meals are formulated to meet the high energy needs of outdoor activity.
There is a careful balance of carbohydrates and sugars for instant
energy, protein to replenish exhausted muscles and oils and fat to
provide an energy store (oils and fats are kept within the recommended
maximum of 30% of total energy)
- Freeze drying retains the natural
vitamins in the food because of the low temperatures used in
processing. Along with naturally occuring minerals and the addition of
salt, the meals provide vitamins and minerals necessary to stay healthy.
