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.
