Freeze | Slow™Dried

"Earth considered" food provisions to nourish and encourage outdoor accessibility and connection for everybody, the active or passive adventurer, backpacker, camper, orienteerer-navigator, mountain biker, trail runner, sailor, snow or water skier, search and rescue volunteer, horse rider, aviator, caver, locations scout [^], school walking bus, fishing [^^], inline skater and so much more. After all, New Zealand is a special place of natural beauty with extensive bushbiotics so our EATRIGHT (trademark) foods are designed and made to sustain, not water weighted, ingredient rich, a valuable source of energy, all season suitable, with natural and non GMO ingredients. 

Depending on the product, various pre approved organic methods of drying (air, freeze, semi, dehydrate, sun, oven [1]), pressure (hand or machine, stamped, rolled or cold pressed) or a combination of novel, Kiwi ingenuity, nature simulated systems are used [*]. A variety of shapes (without limitation) are possible eg a round or 'misc' design (dried 'apple' rings or 'dices', 'kiwi fruit' slices, grapes (red, green etc), 'balls', cookies, cracker biscuits, patties, mini cakes, cereals), 'rectangles' or 'squares' (crackers, snackers, bars, bricks, 'small slab' (tablet)), ingot or oblong, triangles or 'polygon' (corners, cake slices), lozenge or 'diamond' (food drying mat patterns) [†].

With the EATRIGHT® Slow™Dried processing philosophy

  • The interlocked moisture allows the products to be nutrient dense, less processed and high in quality
  • Are suitable for vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, flexitarians, plant-based and vegetarian-curious vegi-tourists [**]
  • Where possible, the ingredients are local, seasonal, unsullied [***] and sustainably grown
  • There is no permitted glyphosate accelerator drying or 'desiccating' [****] used in the 100% organic products, with New Zealand leading the way on low or ‘ultra-low’ residue inputs (see eg Apple Futures program)
  • Uses several replenishable resources
  • Mineral, vitamin, probiotic &/- protease rich (not enriched). Hence, the use of extracts such as ‘leguminous protein’ or 'isolated from plants...volatile oils' are, most often, not needed

Interestingly, there is now greater recognition that “seasonality, preservation methods, organic food, different production systems (extensive-intensive), food classifications and holistic approaches” require further consideration in nutrition criteria and analysis of diets [*****]. 

And, although solid food structures are considered important in the overall digestive process, you will find the EATRIGHT® products are low moisture, soft to eat, with obstructive-lessening demulcents. Not twice baked, 'hard tack' or 'cinder blocks'. Try the EATRIGHT® organic dried apple rings, gold kiwi fruit slices and the EATRIGHT (trademark) Ginger (switchel) Cookies, a welcome relief in no subscription ration packs, emergency sustenance, ready-to-use survival packs or even as 'creative tourism' souvenirs. The organic green kiwifruit slices are available in air dried or bespoke freeze dried variants. Please indicate which processing type the order section. 

The holistic processing techniques used, enable the EATRIGHT® Superseeded (version 3.0) Crackers to be a good natural source of Magnesium, Thiamin, Niacin and a source of Phosphorous, Iron, Zinc, Manganese, Selenium, Omega 3 and Vitamin E. Consuming three crackers (a serving size 30g or 1oz) contributes to energy, iron transport, metabolism, and reduces tiredness and fatigue. A 4.5 Health Star Rated product. 

Try the "Dried Wild Mushroom Mix". They are a forest foraged fungi, hand harvested then dehydrated mix of bolete edible fungi (symbionts from the undergrowth of birch, larch, Pinus Radiata and Douglas-fir trees). Naturally rich in dietary fiber, umami (grown in New Zealand’s high UV levels, less pollution, less pests and diseases environment) are a good source of vitamin D2 [******] (provitamin D2 converted to previtamin D2), B vitamins (including B12 ), zinc, potassium, copper and selenium micro-nutrients. Research has found that mushrooms ('highest levels in bolete") are one of the best dietary sources of amino acid “L-ergothioneine” (ERGO) [*******] also referred to as the 'longevity vitamin', with consumption appearing to have a positive effect on cognitive/memory health. You can eat straight from the pack to enjoy their intense flavor, or rehydrate by soaking in warm water for about 15 minutes. A great product and/or natural taste enhancing ingredient. Buy now

Spray free, shell dried, hand cracked walnuts, sourced from one hundred and fifty year old South Island trees, have been used in certain bespoke products and in the EATRIGHT® energy-e-enzyme balls (experimental food research: lower energy content, 'deferred' walnut health claims [2] and natural ingredient sources of malic-acid). Sourcing direct from multiple owner operated farmers and ('orphaned crop') growers means shorter lead-times, lower stock (holding/banking/forecasting) requirements and greater flexibility on minimum order quantities. Upfront microfinance payment is offered to small suppliers in need (promissory note, procurement notice, product names (abbrev. “PN”)); part of the responsible fair treatment of fellow entrepreneurs program.

Other ingredients such as the 70% cocoa mass chocolate (made from non-New-Zealand-grown (cocoa powder, pressed-raw-sugar)) and the carbonzero™, Kosher [††] and Halal (unsalted butter made from pure, waterlessened, ‘heavy’ cream), have differing processing techniques to those mentioned above. However, the techniques used are scrutinized and approved to multiple standards by internationally recognized organic certifiers ("no dramatic alteration to the chemical structure of the natural product") and to specific religious requirements. 

In our “daring to be different”, ingots of ingenuity, business philosophy we aim to do a thousand things in innovative ways, adapting to change at kinematic-dynamic speeds and celebrate everything that increases awareness and resiliency. That includes inverted, be curious and creative thinking; since, the hardest thing in the world can be to simplify (or use clean thinking), with it easier to make things too complex or byzantine [^^^].
