LYOFOOD GmbH is strongly connected to its partner LYOVIT – one of the biggest producers of freeze-dried herbs, fruits and vegetables, having an experience of 25 years on the market. In order to satisfy the needs of end consumers, the idea if ready to eat freeze-dried meals was born. Due to the increasing demand for healthy and tasty freeze-dried meals, a new international expansion strategy was developed. The brand LYOFOOD was separated from its mother company and reestablished as LYOFOOD GmBH in 2010 with its headquarter in Germany.
Quality plays the most important role in the whole company.
We do not add any preservatives or artificial food-additives to our products. LYOFOODs suppliers are carefully verified in order to ensure that their products meet the highest quality standards. Some of the ingredients come from our own fields.
LYOFOOD first established itself as supplier of freeze-dried, nutrient-rich and 100 % natural outdoor meals, known under the product line LYO EXPEDITION. They were awarded with the Gold Outdoor Industry Award in 2013. Working together with professional athletes over the years, gave LYOFOOD the idea to develop also the perfect smoothies. As a result, a new product line was launched under the name LYO POWDERS. Nowadays one can find under the brand LYOFOOD freeze-dried ready meals, fruits, fruit and vegetable powders, as well as delicious powder mixes.
What is the advantage of freeze-drying vis-a-vis other food preservation methods?
NATURAL TEAST - freeze-dried food keeps its original and natural taste. Only the moisture is being extracted during the freeze-drying process, the aroma is preserved.
HIGH NUTRITIONAL VALUE - freeze-dried food is rich in calories. Moreover, all minerals and vitamins are kept.
ORIGINAL FORM AND SIZE - freeze-drying process allows the maintaining of the original form and size of all ingredients, not like with conventional dehydrated products.
LOW WEIGHT - during the freeze-drying process 98% of the moisture content is being removed, which results in significantly reduced weight. Our meals are light-weight and compactly packed.
LONG SHELF LIFE - freeze-dried food has a very long shelf life. Since the water content is being removed, microorganisms and enzymes action are inhibited. Each pouch is hermetically sealed, so that no moisture and no oxygen can enter into the pouch. Moreover, the pouches also contain an oxygen absorber (this one is not bad for the health, but should be taken out of the pouch before eating).
EASY PREPARATION - by adding water, the product is ready in few minutes.
HEALTHY AND SAFE - to make sure our meals are safe in every aspect, they are checked twice in the in-house laboratory. Once after being cooked and for a second time after the freeze-drying process. Further lab checks are made in the external laboratories.
