BENEFITS OF FREEZE-DRYING BREAST MILK
Freeze-drying requires no refrigeration or freezer storage.
Breast milk powder (vacuum sealed in high barrier mylar bags) is
shelf-stable for 3+ years.
Freeze-drying eliminates the bad taste from high-lipase milk
(in some cases, even after extended freezer storage!)
Freeze-drying is a better way to preserve the nutritional, immunological, and probiotic components of breast milk. Rehydrate into milk again or add breast milk powder to solid foods to give them a nutritional boost.
Freeze-drying breast milk protects it from loss during a power outage or natural disaster.
Freeze-dried breast milk makes transporting breast milk during travel easier and more convenient. Breast milk powder is TSA-safe! Transporting and saving breast milk from a surrogate/donor is also made much easier in powdered form.
Freeze-drying breast milk as you pump is a great way to stockpile in preparation for transitioning back to the workplace. Breast milk powder is easy for caretakers to use when mom is away.
