Dehydrated vs. Freeze Dried – What’s the difference?

freeze dried meals - whats the difference to dehydrated?

Dehydration and Freeze drying both seek to remove moisture from food, however the methods are vastly different

Dehydrators use heat to evaporate water, whereas Freeze drying uses vacuum freezing (a process called sublimation) to gently remove water, without damaging the food and the delicate vitamins and essential phytonutrients

This allows the food to retain its original shape, texture and concentrated taste. Freeze dried products are generally more expensive than Dehydrated equivalent products, but are way superior in every other aspect

How Our Meals are Made

THE BASIC SCIENCE

Freeze drying, technically known as Lyophilisation, is a drying process that involves the removal of moisture under vacuum and a further process called Sublimation, where ice is converted to water vapour without melting.

This results in a superior product, that does not shrink or toughen, retains flavour and maintains 98% of the nutritional value and a shelf life of up to 25 years

1

FREEZE

In this step, our meals are pre-cooked and then flash frozen solid to lock in and retain their nutrients

2

VACUUM AND DRY

The frozen meals are then put under vacuum and progressively heated. Typically up to 98% of water is extracted through a process called sublimation. Following this, the meals are heated and cooled over a period of 48 hours, until the meals have almost no moisture

PACK

The dry product is then packed into pouches and sealed ensure our product is kept at the highest quality
