How Freeze Drying Works (Video)

Steps to Freeze Dry Food

  • Fresh or cooked foods are placed in the dryer where they are frozen to -40° F or colder.
  • Once the food is frozen, the dryer creates a powerful vacuum around the food. Then, as the food is slightly warmed, the ice transitions into vapor and is drawn out of the food.
  • The freeze-dried food is then sealed in moisture and oxygen proof packaging, (e.g. easy close bags) to ensure freshness until opened.
  • When water is added to the food it regains its original fresh flavor, aroma, texture, and appearance!
