Astronaut Space Food - Neapolitan ice cream sandwich. Freeze-dried, ready-to-eat, Neapolitan ice cream. Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream sandwiched between two chocolatey wafer cookies. Enjoy your ice cream just as the astronauts do - the freeze-dried way! Astronaut ice cream, as well as other freeze-dried food items, have been aboard space missions since the early mercury missions. They continue to be used on NASA missions today. How is astronaut ice cream freeze-dried? Freeze-drying, or lysophilisation, removes water from the ice cream by lowering the air pressure to a point where ice shifts from a solid to a gas. The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the water crystalizes. The air pressure is lowered, creating a 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 perfect freeze-dried ice cream slice. Net weight 28g, made in the USA - produced in a facility that also processes peanuts, milk, soy, wheat, gluten, egg and tree nut ingredients. - calories 120 all our Astronaut Foods have the certified space technology insignia on the packaging to indicate that they are the same range as used in space by NASA astronauts.
