What is Freeze Dried?
Fresh fruits are placed in a refrigerated vacuum, where, without thawing, they are dehydrated — ice disappears in the form of escaping water vapor. Cell structure remains intact, which results in excellent retention of flavor, color, shape, and nutritional value.
Fruit which is "dried," but not "freeze dried," is generally made in other processes which cost less but add sweeteners — often water content is simply replaced with sugar.
