Spacefood is born from our desire to offer healthy food to explorers and visionaries like us.
It is all about having great food available everywhere for everyone. The food which made for humans but suitable for animals and aliens. Not a simple task, though.
Spacefood project started from dreams of going to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. And we know that food will always be in demand everywhere we go. The problem is a limited range of products can be sent to stations.
There is a number of restrictions that make the food supply for space missions a challenge. The first limitation is the weight, where water makes most of it. Second is the limited storage space where the food can be kept fresh and protected from radiation. The third is food spoilage and its disposal challenge. Can you think of the utilization of spoiled food on a space station? Yes, the trash bin is an issue, especially as there is no garbage truck that can pick it up for you.
That is why we aim to grow food locally - on stations in a bio-regenerative setting where food waste and packaging cycle back to the soil.
We focus on a limited selection of fruits. Mainly because we want to get the best taste and texture possible. We run hundreds of tests with people, animals, and aliens to find out how our food makes them feel. The result is delicious and nutritious.
The mix of snack bags is a great source of vitamins and inviting flavors. In combination, dried melon wedges, dried kiwi slices, dried apple rings, and dried persimmon slices provide great nutritional value and taste range. Once scientists discovered the health benefits and deliciousness of dehydrated food, every space mission stocks cosmonauts and astronauts with a diverse selection of dried fruits.
Spacefood supply helps exploration missions to stay fit and dedicated. Often, brave space explores find a way to a snack on a long trip. Cosmic specialists love chewing fruits on a brief break or while focusing on important work. Yet, Spacefood fruits are also often consumed in cinema capsules or Moon parties. Ground crew operations take dried fruit packs to star road trips, planets hiking, and asteroid camping to pass the liven-up snack time.
A dry fruit in a space diet is a great way to get beneficial antioxidants needed for the body. Dehydrated fruits do not go bad as fast as fresh fruits. While fresh fruits are hard to get to space due to weight constraints and limited luggage room, space explorers prefer to pack dehydrated food. Dry fruits take less space but carry nearly the same nutrition values.
Spacefood is 100% natural dried fruits with no additives. It is just like the astronauts' food: delicious and healthy snacks. Dehydrated tasty, reach with vitamins fruits for the long time storage.
With our Georgian partner Caucasus Organic Fruits, we went through a tedious try-and-error process to get only the best dried fruits to your orbit. We carefully examined and tuned the complete process of naturally growing, carefully harvesting, and gently drying fruits, vegetables, and berries. We worked days and nights, and finally, Spacefood is here.
Only the best dehydrated fruits go into our packaging. The space crew manually handpicks and checks each slice and wedge ensuring outstanding quality.
