Freeze Drying

Freeze drying is the best way to capture the fresh flavor and nutritional value of fruit and vegetables while ensuring a long shelf life.

The process begins with placing the frozen raw materials in a refrigerated vacuum system where its gently dehydrated before it can thaw. The ice turns directly into water vapor without passing through the liquid phase. This drying method allows for the superior retention of the food’s color, nutrients and piece identity - far more than alternative drying methods.

Drum Drying

Drum drying is an excellent, high quality drying method at an economical value.

During the drum drying process, pureed raw ingredients are quickly dried at the lowest possible temperatures over a pair of large, rotating drums, then milled by the sheet into flakes or powders that can be easily and quickly reconstituted. Drum drying retains much of the fresh flavor, color and nutritional value of the raw ingredients making it ideal for a variety of food, beverage, and dietary supplement applications.
