What Are Freeze Dried Foods?
Freeze drying is a process that must be done with care. It is done by flash freezing and then removing 99% of the moisture from the foods. Removing the water makes the food deterioration and bacteria resistant.
Freeze drying is accomplished by arranging it onto drying racks and placing them inside freeze drying machines. The freeze drying machine exposes the foods to rapid temperature drops that preserves the structure of the food. In this process the moisture from the foods becomes a gas that is removed from the freeze drying machine.
We take it a step further in preserving your freeze dried foods. All of our foods come in PET metalized pouches. This is the ultimate in long term storage technology.
Is Freeze Dried Food Bad For You?
Freeze dried food isn’t bad for you. For example freeze dried berries retain about 90% of their anthocyanins. While freeze dried foods don’t contain 100% of their fresh value, if the grocery stores are empty they are 100% healthier than starving. In fact once foods have been rehydrated they have similar nutritional value to fresh foods.
How Do You Store Freeze Dried Food?
Our freeze dried foods are best when stored between 60 and 70 degrees fahrenheit. That is the range of most homes during all months of the year. Keeping your foods in this range will help retain the maximum nutritional value and taste. Also by keeping them in the home you will have them when you need them and they won’t be prone to theft.
How Does Freeze Drying Work?
Freeze drying has 4 main stages: Pretreatment, Freezing, Drying, and Sealing. The primary components of a freeze drying machine are a chamber, shelving, freezing coils, compressors, and vacuum pumps. These systems work to heat and then flash freeze the foods to release all of the moisture and then evacuate it.
Freeze Drying Stage 1 - Pretreatment
The very first thing that must be done with foods before they are freeze dried is to check their quality. Not only just the smell and flavor but to ensure there are no signs of bacteria or spoilage. This ensures that foods will be safe for emergencies.
Freeze Drying Stage 2 - Freezing
Freezing is where the magic happens. All of the food is put in the freeze drying machine on shelves. This chamber is sealed up and the foods are flash frozen. This is accomplished by dropping the temperature inside the chamber to about -110 degrees F. The benefit of this is that it turns all of the moisture into a solid and it separates from the foods.
Freeze Drying Stage 3 - Drying
Drying is the next step in freeze dried foods. It is accomplished by dropping the pressure in the chamber which causes sublimation. Sublimation is the removal of moisture by applying low temperature and pressure. As heat is added to the foods the moisture is released. This process transforms the frozen moisture into a gas that can be sucked out. The full process of drying may take hours or days to ensure the moisture is out and it is safe to package.
Freeze Drying Stage 4 - Sealing
Sealing, or packaging, is the final step before freeze dried foods are ready to store. We use metallized PET pouches that protect your food from oxygen and water. Those two elements we depend on to live will ruin long term food storage. Freeze drying is the preferred method of preserving foods for emergency food supply. The shelf life is unbeatable along with the safety of the foods and ease of preparation.
