the best drying method?
WHY IS FREEZE-DRYING
Not all food-drying methods are equal. Regular dehydration doesn't keep your produce fresh for nearly as long as freeze-drying does, which means that many conventionally dried fruit snacks are laced with added preservatives to prevent them from going bad. Freeze-drying doesn't require any of these preservatives, which makes freeze-dried fruit snacks a purer and healthier option. Freeze-dried fruits and vegetables taste better and store better than those that are dried using heat.
