    f you have ever attemped to dehydrate your own fruit or vegetables, you will learn how time consuming and expensive it will be. For the price this is a great value for a high quality, very nutritional, and tasty product. No more concerns about freshness or spoilage. Makes a great addition for daily use or for extended storage. It also makes a great, healty snack! Will be ordering a couple cases at this price!

    I was a bit hesitant about ordering these because oranges are so full of liquid and I just couldn't picture how they'd successfully translate into a freeze dried form. But I am a sucker for freeze dried fruits so decided to give them a try. I wasn't disappointed! It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful freeze dried foods can be!

    I love oranges and coffee for breakfast. These oranges taste good, provide a good source of vitamin C and other nutrition and are a great value! I look to get the most for my money when prepping and these oranges are great! I would recommend these to anyone who wants something more than peanut butter crackers for breakast in an emergency.

    I bought an extra can of these freeze dried oranges to open and try. Hoping for a nice tangy treat, I was not disappointed! They are really tasty! Since they're freeze dried they're about the texture of the baked cheese curls in the supermarket. Re-hydrating produced a soft orange segment.

    Wanting to keep a good quality of the leftover product I'm vacuuming sealing into pint canning jars. This will protect from air and moisture and storing in a dark place will take care of light. After sampling about a half cup I ended up with 5 pints of relatively whole segments and about 1/2 cup of powder from the bottom of the can. I expect the powder to be great in orange bread or cranberry orange relish.

    I will buy more on sale.

  • You can convert the freeze-dried weight to that of fresh produce.

    • Price
    • Value
    • Quality

    The USDA has a list that gives water content of foods, among other nutritional information. For peeled oranges, water content is 86.75% of weight. The 8.01 ounces of freeze-dried orange segments in the can represents remaining dry weight after water has been removed, and is therefore 13.25% of the weight of the original fresh orange segments. Dividing 8.01 ounces by .1325 gives us 60.45 ounces or 3.78 pounds for the weight of the original orange segments before freeze drying. (Actually, you should add 1% to 2% to the totally dry weight for a bit of residual moisture for freeze-dried or dehydrated food, but we'll calculate these so as to give them the benefit of every doubt.) If you want to figure how many pounds of fresh oranges in their peel that equals, there is another government table that gives you edible yield per pound of fresh produce. For oranges, the yield in peeled segments averages 60% of the weight of the whole oranges. So that 3.78 pounds of orange segments is equal to about 6.3 pounds of fresh oranges. The current sale price of $24.25/can then equals $3.84 a pound (0.25/ounce) for fresh oranges or $6.42 a pound (0.40/ounce) for drained canned segments. I would suggest the fairest comparison would be to the drained weight of cans or jars of orange segments, since the labor of peeling and processing does add considerably to the price of any orange that will keep on the shelf versus fresh fruit. Even when compared to the net drained weight of orange segments in cans or jars, though, these are still notably more expensive. These are an excellent product in terms of quality, and they will keep well far longer than conventionally canned orange segments. Armed with the comparative pricing, everyone can decide for themselves how they feels about the cost of adding them to their food storage.

    I had a couple of #10 cans of these sitting around and never tried them, so I went ahead and did. The good: The orange flavor really pops in your mouth and the crunchy texture (un-reconstituted) makes this a wonderfully good, nutritious snack. The bad? These cans only hold 8 ounces and after just a few snacks, they were gone. It's a great product but for the price, I just feel there are much, much better options out there. I was disappointed that these only are 8 ounces worth of dried oranges and they sure don't last very long. My advice is if you really want to try them, wait for a really good sale, order only one, and try them yourself to see if it's worth the price. You will NOT be disappointed in the flavor and texture, just possibly the value.

    From the Ready Store:

    Ken, 8 oz is the dry weight. It will increase quite a bit when you reconstitute them. Agree they are tasty, if not addicting! Thanks for taking time to leave the review.
