Freeze-drying or lyophilization

Freeze-drying is a high-tech process for dehydration of food at low temperature, with minimum change of color, taste, texture and, most importantly, the nutritive characteristics, keeping unaltered the nutritional values. Freeze-drying can be applied to almost any kind of food.

The purpose of freeze-drying is to remove water from a solution through a process involving freezing and then sublimation of ice by reducing pressure. Freeze-drying is the least aggressive process to dry food and the best method to dry organic or inorganic compounds without altering its qualitative or quantitative composition.

The freeze-drying process is done in vacuum and at low temperature, so that, for instance, it’s possible to avoid the denaturalization of proteins. Food and biological materials are turned into dry products, avoiding the liquid phase, and consequently the enzymatic, biological and chemical changes. Freeze-dried products maintain all of its natural smell, color, and taste properties.
