Lyophilizer freeze dryer
Lyophilizer freeze dryer, removes moisture from raw, frozen product through a vacuum system and process called sublimation. The raw product is cut down to the desired piece size and spread evenly onto trays. The trays are then loaded into a refrigerated lyophilizer freeze dryer chamber that seals tightly shut. The lyophilizer freeze dryer chamber’s vacuum system removes ice from the product and converts it directly to a vapor without moving through the liquid state, in a process called sublimation. Since the water is removed from the product in a frozen state, cell structure remains intact and finished product bears close resemblance to its fresh counterpart, thus retaining its piece identity.
Shifting consumer values have led more people to seek nutrition from real, high-quality food sources with understandable labels. Because they are minimally processed, freeze-dried foods from lyophilizer freeze dryer can be clean ingredients, free from synthetic, artificial, and highly processed materials. Lyophilizer freeze dryer retains nutritional value better than other drying machines, further supporting consumers’ desire for nutrition from whole foods. The process also preserves the actual color and shape of the original raw material, reassuring consumers they are getting real fruits and vegetables in their diets. The intense flavor and aroma of freeze-dried ingredients also closely resembles the profile of the raw material.
Another advantage of lyophilizer freeze dryer is the ability to customize to unique needs and project goals. Freeze-dried ingredients can be cut or ground into many different sizes and shapes – everything from whole fruits and vegetables down to fine powders. Finished product can be easily mixed into any blend or formulation for a flavor profile completely unique to your final product.
Customization and blending capabilities give food processors the ability to incorporate real fruits and vegetables into a large variety of applications. Growing categories of lyophilizer freeze dryer applications include breakfast applications like hot and cold cereals, retail-ready or ready-to-eat snacks, and beverage applications like smoothies or whole fruit pieces added to beverages.
