Oregon Freeze Dry, Inc. was a pioneer in the commercial development of freeze-dried meals, and continues to be the world's leader in freeze-dry technology. In the 1960's, we worked with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in adapting these meals to meet the requirements of NASA's space program. This breakthrough in food technology was used aboard most of the Apollo missions, and today Oregon Freeze Dry continues to produce many of the foods used on the shuttle flights.
The foods produced by Oregon Freeze Dry for use on the space missions are packed into unique pouches developed by NASA. These pouches have a special valve that allows water to be injected into the pouch. The water reconstitutes the freeze-dried food. If the food is meant to be eaten hot, the pouch is then placed in a food warmer and heated to serving temperature. (These packages are not available for commercial sale, sorry.)
Mountain House freeze dried backpacking foods are very similar to the same foods we supply for NASA, except the packaging is a specially designed for the needs of the backpacker.
