Why Freeze Dry

Why Freeze Dry?

  • Preserve Nutritional Value

  • Improve Taste
    (by deactivating lipase)

  • Travel Friendly

  • Shelf Stable

  • Fewer Lost Stashes

  • Convenient!

Freeze-drying preserves the nutritional, immunological, and probiotic components of your breast milk according to scientific, evidence-based research on the long-term preservation of nutrients, enzymes, and antibodies in freeze dried breast milk.

Lipase can cause soapy or sour tasting breast milk. This can lead to babies refusing frozen breast milk. Freeze-drying inactivates the lipase enzyme that stays active during regular freezing storage, potentially reducing this problem for breast feeding moms.

Not only does freeze dried breast milk offer nutrition benefits, it gives you convenience by delivering flexibility and peace of mind – and a much longer window for use with a three year shelf life versus traditional freezing. When you freeze-dry, you don’t risk wasting your breast milk or battling with freezer space. And whether you have to return to work while you’re breastfeeding, navigate TSA and travel, or have a supply available for other caregivers, your nutritionally dense breast milk is available!
