Freeze Dried Fruits and Vegetables
Freezedrying (lyophilisation, or cryodesiccation) is a unique dehydration process to preserve fruits, vegetables and other ingredients. Freezedrying works by freezing the raw material and then reducing the surrounding pressure to allow the frozen water in the material to sublimate directly from the solid phase to the gas phase. Because this is a very gentle process, the taste and nutritional value of the freezedried product are very well preserved. Freezedried products are also very easily re-hydrated because of the very "open" cell structure of the dried product. Freezedried ingredients are used often in breakfast cereals, tea and instant products which need to hydrate fast.
