Freeze dried strawberries are freeze-dried strawberries, right? Why would one brand have lower sugar than another?
Well, some freeze-dried strawberries have added sugar (that is, beyond what naturally occurs in strawberries).
And since strawberries can vary in sweetness (organic versus conventionally grown), some freeze-dried strawberry brands have lower sugar than others.
If you’d prefer a low-sugar option, we think these tasted the best: Mother Earth Product’s freeze dried strawberries. Here’s why:
What We Liked
• Not too tart, not too sweet. Very good flavor!
• Only 17 grams of sugar per ounce of strawberries.
• No added sugar or preservatives.
• Easier to store in pantry, thanks to plastic jar. Other freeze-dried strawberries come in pouches, which are easy to lose in a pantry!
What Needs Work
• More chewy than crunchy.
