View Full Version : Is Freeze Drying O.K.?
09-06-2007, 12:15 AM
A company called "Just tomatoes",(maybe some of you have heard about it)
claims their freeze dried veggies are raw.
Does anyone know if freeze drying is a raw process?
Thanks to anyone in advance for any replies.

i am very curious about this as well because sam's club is now selling freeze dried strawberries and apples, but i don't know if they fall into the category of raw.

freeze drying does involve heat.
It is a process of sublimation, where the water goes into a gas, but it does this straight from the frozen water state (ice) to water vapor.
To me it's NOT raw. But it is often marketed as a raw process.
You can google for technical info about how things are freeze dried if you want more info, or maybe someone on here has more info or opinions on whether raw.

I've always thought freeze-drying is okay. I ate some freeze-dried pineapple once and the enzymes hurt my mouth just as raw pineapple does
