Freeze Dried Diced Pears (Pyrus communis) are produced in a process where moisture is removed from the frozen product using a very low temperature and a vacuum. Only about 4% moisture remains in the product at the time of packaging. The end product weight is reduced by over 90%, while the volume stays the same. This remarkable process concentrates the fresh product taste, natural color, and texture of fresh product in it's freeze dried state. When re-hydrated with water the product will maintain the texture and shape of fresh product, with no shrinking or shriveling.
Freeze Dried and Dehydrated products are less expensive than wet pack food because you are not paying for all the water.
