This method extracts water even more quickly than the conventional drying process. Effectively, the fruit's water content is decreased without hampering its composition. This method of preserving food is best suited to low-sugar, soft fruits such as raspberries and strawberries. Frozen-drying provides long shelf life to fruits, allowing them to last many years when preserved properly.
