Freeze-Dried, Ready-to-Eat, Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Sandwich.

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 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.
