Home Forums Technical Discussion Freeze drying food Re: Freeze drying food


Just because you can do it does not means you should. Freeze drying is a technically complex and power hyngry process. Compare this with dehydration which can be accomplished (sun dried) without using power. Both processes result in food packaged so it can be stored without refrigeration.

Using your numbers of $200 – $8000 I can buy a lot of freeze dried supplies for that amount, without needing power and having huge power bills to pay.
