Frequently Asked Questions
How is freeze dried candy made?
Freeze dried candy undergoes a unique and fascinating process. First, the candy is frozen to an extremely low temperature. Then, it's placed in a vacuum chamber where the pressure is reduced, and heat is applied. This causes the water content within the candy to sublimate, turning into a gas. The water vapor is then removed from the chamber, leaving behind perfectly freeze dried candy – crispy, lightweight, and packed with flavor.
What machine is used to make freeze dried candy?
The machine commonly used to make freeze dried candy is called a freeze dryer, or lyophilizer. This specialized equipment is designed to lower the pressure and temperature within a chamber, allowing for the sublimation of water from the candy while preserving its shape and flavor. Freeze dryers are essential in creating the unique texture and characteristics of freeze dried candy.
