An optimal freeze-drying process

Many people find dried foods convenient, tasty and nutritious. There are good opportunities for food manufacturers to cater to this need.

Freeze-drying, also known as lyophilisation or cryodesiccation, is a highly effective process for drying fruits and vegetables.

The opportunities are almost limitless:

Fruits: Berries, slices of apples, bananas, mangoes, pineapple, apricot, melon, and more

Vegetables: Chilies, onions, peppers, garlic, coconut, coconut flour, and more

Improved quality of dried fruits and vegetables

Freeze drying is a low-temperature dehydration process that involves freezing the product, lowering pressure and then removing the ice by sublimation. This contrasts with dehydration using previously conventional methods, which are based on the principle of evaporating water with heat.

Freeze drying results in a high-quality product because of the low temperature used in the process. The original shape of the product is maintained, while the quality of the re-hydrated product is excellent.
