NASA Freeze Dried Astronaut Ice Cream (2) Apollo Space Snacks
Eat real astronaut food with NASA Freeze Dried Astronaut Ice Cream SandwichOriginally developed for the early Apollo Space missions, a real ice cream sandwich is frozen to -40 degrees and then vacuum dried and placed in a special foil pouch. Freeze drying removes water from the ice cream by lowering the air pressure to a point where ice shifts from a solid to a gas. How do they do it? The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the water crystallizes. The air pressure is lowered, creating a partial vacuum, forcing air out of the chamber; next heat is applied, vaporizing the ice; finally a freezing coil traps the vaporized water. This process continues for hours, resulting in a freeze-dried neapolitan ice cream slice. When you put it on your tongue, it reconstitutes into creamy yummy tasting ice cream. Dehydrated ice cream product will arrive in bite size pieces/chunks. Each 1 oz. 8 1/2" x 4 3/4" x 1" package is perfect for birthday party favors, stocking stuffers and more.
