All About: Dried Fruit and Berries
We answer your most frequently asked questions about fruit and berries
Q: What is the difference between dried fruit and dehydrated fruit?
A: Freeze-dried and dehydrated foods are gaining popularity as healthy travel-friendly snacks. While these foods sound very similar, they are not quite the same.
- Freeze-dried: This process removes almost all of the water content from fruit, making it lighter, and gives it a more airy texture. Because of the lower water content, freeze-dried snacks have a long shelf life.
- Dehydrated: This process removes up to 80% of water content, which renders a chewier product (with the exception of some fruit, like bananas).
