What happens during the freeze-drying process?
The process of freeze-drying removes virtually all the water from foods while the basic cell structure and nutrient composition remain largely unchanged. Freeze-drying allows foods to be stored at room temperature for one year or longer. It also causes less damage to foods, such as shrinkage or toughening, than other dehydration methods which use heat. Flavors and smells also remain generally unchanged.
