Why Freeze Dry?

Why Freeze Dry?

The simple idea behind freeze drying is to totally remove the water from the food being freeze dried.  This will leave the structure and composition of the food intact.  Removing all the water from the food will ensure the food will not spoil for prolonged periods of time (as long as it is sealed in the original package).  The removal of water also reduces the weight of the food considerably.

It just makes sense why you should choose freeze dry products.  There are several benefits to freeze dried foods.  Freeze drying does not shrink or toughen the food; it retains flavor, color, and nutrition.  The weight of the food when it is freeze dried decreases by as much as 70 to 80 percent and doesn’t change the size in volume.  Therefore, it is light weight and very easy to handle.  Also, because of the light weight, it won’t cost as much for shipping. 


My freeze dried dog food and treats tastes as good as fresh food straight from the market.  Just ask your dog, has he ever lied to you?


Food products are stable at room temperature and refrigeration is not required.  Just remember if you leave the freeze dried food or treats out on the counter in an open package, the moisture from the air will re-hydrate the food.  This doesn’t make the food unusable, but you will need to give it to your pet within hour or if your bag of treats re-hydrate, just put them in the refrigerator and feed within a day or two.

Shelf Life

Freeze dried food will last up to 20 years when sealed properly (unopened in the original package).  My freeze dried dog food and treats are perfect for everyday use, camping, or put some in storage for emergencies.


Freeze drying maintains 97% of the nutritional value of the food. Other methods of preservation, such as cooking and dehydrating, use high temperatures that destroy much of the food value.


Freeze drying works great for fruits and vegetables, but unlike other options, it also perfectly preserves meat, and fish.
