Humans have been enjoying delicious cherry fruits for many centuries and would definitely keep doing so for many more to come. These fruits are amazing, sweet, juicy, and remain just as wonderful when dried.
Even cherry trees are beautiful and grown in some places for the sheer splendor of their blooms. The famous Japanese sakura, a flower that celebrates fleeting beauty, is a species of cherry. Although, it doesn’t bear the delicious fruit that we can enjoy.
Despite the fact that cherries have been around all over Europe, Asia, and Northern Africa since pre-historic times, there aren’t many cultivars among them. Only a limited number of species produces fruits used commercially, but those few are very tasty.
The first cultivars of cherries arrived to Europe with the Roman army, around 72 B.C. but they reached England only during the reign of Henry VIII in the 15th century. Pilgrims brought cherry trees to America, where they are currently cultivated in Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin, and Michigan states. The so-called ‘cherry capital of the world’ is located in Traverse City, MI.

Freeze Dried Cherries: Yes or No?
Food To Live Organic Dried Cherries are dehydrated instead of freeze dried. We use this technology because dried cherries are more delicious and easier to use for cooking. They don’t require mandatory reconstitution, like freeze dried fruits do.
You can eat them from the pack and coat them in chocolate. This won’t be a very pleasant experience if you go for a freeze dried variety. This type of processing literally freezes all the moisture within fruits and then forcibly removes it by the application of intense pressure. In essence, this leaves you with tightly-packed nutrient dust particles compressed in the shape of a fruit.
Dehydration, on the other hand, works slowly, allowing moisture to evaporate in a natural way. This leaves behind the ‘meat’ of the fruit, which is a pleasure to eat. You can consume freeze dried cherries as well, but their flavor won’t be as rich and intense.
The nutritional value of dried cherries is similar to that of freeze dried because the elements that destabilize during the dehydration process are equally sensitive to heat and cold. This means that there really isn’t much difference between the two types of dried fruit, except for the taste and texture.
Dried cherries are great for you and not just because they are delicious and eating them lifts your mood. They are full of antioxidants and other natural chemicals that strengthen you in many different ways. The overall result is improved wellbeing, complemented with a boost of positive energy that comes from eating a tasty treat.

Cherries are beneficial to your health regardless of whether they are fresh or dried. However, there are some differences in the levels of nutrients these fruits provide.
