Product Notes

All our Astronaut Foods have the Certified Space Technology insigna on the packaging to indicate that they are the same range as used in space by NASA Astronauts.

Enjoy your ice cream just as the Astronauts do - the freeze-dried way! Astronaut Ice Cream, as well as other freeze-dried food items, have been aboard space missions since the early Mercury Missions. They continue to be used on NASA missions today.

How does it Look and Taste?
Freeze-drying is like suspended animation because it keeps the ice cream sandwich totally intact, but without the water. As you eat the sandwich, your mouth rehydrates the ice cream, restoring it to its original state. Amazingly the ice cream sandwich looks and tastes just like the original. Freeze-dried ice cream sandwiches can be stored for many years without refrigeration as long as you keep them in an airtight, sealed container.

How is Astronaut Ice Cream Freeze-Dried?
Freeze-drying, or lysophilisation, removes water from the ice cream by lowering the air pressure to a point where ice shifts from a solid to a gas. The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the water crystalizes. The air pressure is lowered, creating a vacuum, forcing air out of the chamber; next heat is applied, vapourising the ice; finally a freezing coil traps the vaporized water. This process continues for hours, resulting in a perfect freeze-dried ice cream slice.
