    Commercial Dehydrator Information

    Commercial Food drying or aka food dehydrating equipment is a method to preserve food that works by removing water from the food. This process inhibits the growth of bacteria, preserving the foods shelf life and has been practiced worldwide since ancient times to preserve food. Where or when dehydration as a food preservation technique was invented has been lost to time, but the earliest known practice of food drying is 12,000 BC by inhabitants of the modern Middle East and Asia regions. Many people think that food dehydrators and freeze-dried machines are the same thing; however there are big differences between dehydrated and freeze-dried food storage.

    Commercial Freeze Dried Machines VS Food Dehydrator Machines

    Freeze Dried Food VS. Dehydration Food Process

    Commercial Freeze Dried Foods: Food is positioned on large racks inside of a vacuum chamber. The temperature is reduced below the freezing mark and then slowly raised to a specific temperature. The water changes from solid to a gas state. Doing it this way helps maintain the structure of the food while keeping some of the healthy nutrients.
    Commercial Dehydrated Foods: Food dehydrators create a perfect environment for food drying to happen. Depending on the model you decide to purchase, heat sources and fans are typically positioned in the back of the units. Just like a microwave the user just selects a temperature and a time to start, however unlike an oven these appliances have a ventilation system that exchanges the moist air for dry air.

    Shelf Life of Commercial Freeze Dried Machines VS. Food Dehydrator Machines

    Most food dehydrated products like fruits, veggies, and powders have a shelf life of about 15-20 years. In contrast; dehydrated items like honey, salt, sugar, hard and oats have a 30-year shelf life, sometimes even longer.
    Freeze-dried foods will have an even longer shelf life. Freeze-dried fruits, vegetables and just-add-water meals and meats have a 25-30-year shelf life. For maximum life, food storage should be stored at a temperature of 60 degrees or less.

    Moisture Content of Commercial Freeze Dried Machines VS Food Dehydrator Machines

    The goal of food preservation is to eliminate the moisture so that the food doesn't decompose or grow mold. Dehydration gets rid of roughly 90-95% of moisture contents; while in contrast, freeze drying gets rid of around 98-99%. Typically, home vs. commercial use varies from about 10% moisture content level while professional dehydrators have a lower moisture content, which obviously increases the shelf life.

    Nutritional Content of Commercial Freeze Dried Machines VS Food Dehydrator Machines

    Some Research indicates that freeze-dried foods retain more of the vitamins and minerals found in the food before the food preservation process. However, food dehydrators were better with retaining some vitamins of fresh fruits and vegetables and freeze-dried foods like Vitamin C, which break down very rapidly.

    Look Feel and Taste of Commercial Freeze Dried Machines VS Food Dehydrator Machines

    One of the main differences between dehydrated and freeze-dried food is how they look. Most people are familiar with banana chips (dehydrated) but not necessarily freeze-dried bananas (which become soft when you place them in your mouth). Weight is another difference. Freeze-dried foods are going to weigh a lot less than dehydrated foods. This makes them easier to haul or store.
