Q: What is the difference between regular dehydrated and Freeze-dried?
A: Freeze-drying and dehydrating are methods of preserving food by removing moisture, but freeze-drying is considered a better method because it preserves more of the food’s nutrients, texture, colour and flavour compared to dehydrating. Freeze-drying works by freezing the food and then reducing the pressure to sublimate (remove) the frozen water, while in dehydrating, the food is dried through heating, which can cause the food to lose some of its nutritional value. Additionally, freeze-dried food has a longer shelf life and can be rehydrated quickly, making it a more convenient option for emergency food supplies, camping and other outdoor activities.
