Frequently Asked Questions

what is freeze drying?

Freeze drying, also known as lyophilization or cryodesiccation, is a low temperature dehydration process that involves super freezing the product to -100F and removing the ice crystals that form by sublimation. 

Whats the difference between freeze dried and dehydrated?

Freeze-drying removes 98% of the water in foods while dehydration removes about 80% giving freeze-dried products a much longer shelf-life. Freeze-dried food is flash frozen and then exposed to a vacuum, which causes all the water in it to vaporize

How long does it last?

Freeze dried foods can last up to 30 years in storage but there are Several key storage conditions have huge impacts on the shelf life of freeze-dried food.

  • Oxygen: Oxygen in the air can have negative effects on the nutrients, vitamins, flavor, and color in food. It can also increase the growth of microorganisms like bacteria. Having an airtight seal on food in storage is a must for preserving shelf life.

  • Moisture: Moisture also creates a beneficial environment for microorganisms, resulting in spoilage and deterioration of freeze-dried food. Shelf life is significantly shortened when food is stored in a damp area.

  • Light: When food is exposed to light, it can deteriorate the proteins, vitamins, and nutrients in it. This can quickly result in discoloration and off-flavors, so be sure to store your products in a dark area.

  • Temperature: High temperatures cause proteins to break down and vitamins to be destroyed, affecting the color, flavor, and odor of preserved food. Storing food in a warm environment will quickly deteriorate its shelf life.
