What does it mean to freeze-dry a Papaya?
During this process, Papaya is fast-frozen after which the ice crystals formed by freezing are slowly removed in a vacuum. This drying-method keeps 98% of the Papaya’s nutritional value and the fruit tastes and smells exactly as it does fresh. The freeze-dried Papaya retains all the main characteristics such as color, shape, size, taste, texture as well as nutrients. Depending on the type of packaging, freeze-dried foods have a shelf life of up to 25 years. The products do not require any additives for preservation and therefore the result is much healthier than other drying methods. By way of comparison, only about 50-60% of the nutritional value is retained during dehydration. Freeze-dried food is considered raw food because the process takes place below 40C. To better understand the price of the product, it should be noted that 1 kg of freeze-dried Papaya requires about 15 kg of fresh Papaya.
