Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?+

Instant meals that are more (or less) than a delicious home cooked meal. Instead of freezing them we freeze-dried them. This maintains nutrients better than any other and doesn’t require cooled shipping, wasteful packaging and freezer space. It can be stored anywhere, no need to be refrigerated. And it's ready in under 10 min by simply adding hot water.

What is freeze-drying?+

Freeze-drying, also known as lyophilisation, is a preservation method used by NASA, which removes water from food to extend its shelf life. Freeze-drying does a really good job at preserving nutrients as well as color, texture and flavor of fresh ingredients. How it works: The freshly prepared meals are frozen rapidly and then slowly heated up at low air pressure to improve the evaporation of the ice crystals (sublimation). This also allows the heating to happen at fairly low temperatures so the nutrients and texture aren’t changed.

Is it tasty?+

We obviously think so, otherwise we wouldn't make it. But taste is personal, so the only way for you to be sure, is taste it yourself. We’ll send you a free meal of your choice in return for filling out this survey.

Is it healthy?+

Yes. It’s nutritious like a home-cooked meal. It doesn’t have any preservatives nor additives. We specifically choose recipes that are well balanced and have lots of fresh veggies, slow carbs, healthy fats and protein. Everything you need to keep thriving. We do want to encourage everybody to eat varied and therefor don’t want you to solely rely on our meals. Go to a restaurant, order in, have friends over and cook something together, whatever you like.

Is it vegan?+

Most our meals will be vegan. This doesn’t mean we won’t make meals that contain animal products in the future. Actually, we’d like to learn more about your preferences, so we can make meals tailored to your needs. We’ll send you a free meal of your choice in return for filling out this survey.

How much will it cost?+

We’re still in the development of the recipes, so it's difficult to calculate the final price. Actually, we’d like to learn more about how much you're willing to pay. We’ll send you a free meal of your choice in return for filling out this survey.
