Q：How does freeze drying work?
A：Freeze dryers work by freezing the material, then reducing the pressure and adding heat to allow the frozen water in the material to change directly to a vapor (sublimate)Q：How Are Candy Freeze-Dried Commercially
A：Our company have perfected this technique using specialized equipment. The machine that is commercially used does everything in one go. The candies are first flash-frozen to preserve their flavor best. If they were to slowly freeze the candies, they may be subject to freezer burn, which ruins their texture and flavor. Once the candies are all frozen, the machine creates a vacuum. This vacuum removes all the air and simultaneously, the moisture. Q：What is special about freeze dried candy?
A：Freeze-dried candy tastes sweeter and richer than the original, as they are more concentrated due to the loss of water natural in freeze-drying. The candy may puff up or “explode” and no longer look like the original. The benefit of freeze-drying your candy is that it makes your candies taste even better than beforeQ：Does Freeze Dried foods lose their taste?
A：No, by using the freeze dry process nothing is lost except the water in a food. So when re-hydrated it retains the taste it had prior to being freeze dried.Q：What's the difference between freeze dried candy and regular candy?
A：Freeze-dried candy is a new form of preservation method where sweet or sour treats are frozen. This method doesn't affect the food value but makes it more flavourful and faster rehydration process. What is this? This freezing of treats also has a longer shelf life and stays good for as long as 25 years.Q：Are any preservatives used in freeze dried foods?
A：NO! The freeze dry process eliminates the need for preservatives.Q：How should I store freeze dried candy?
