About Freeze Dried Salmon
Freeze drying is one of the best ways to process meat for pet treats.
The process allows meat to keep its ideal characteristics, specifically flavor and nutrient content.
How Are Foods Freeze Dried?
Freeze drying starts with flash-freezing meat or fish in a vacuum chamber at -50 to -60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Low-level heat is then applied to evaporate any ice crystals, removing about 98% of moisture.
Why Freeze Dry Meat And Fish?
Flash-frozen foods keep without preservatives, additives or chemicals.
Freeze dried meat retains its vitamin, mineral and fat content.
The process of freeze drying does less harm to the meat than heat-based preservation methods.
Conventional cooking reduces amino acids, denatures peptides, alters flavors and aromas, and decomposes vitamins and fatty acids.
Freeze dried meat retains many of the properties of raw meat.
Freeze dried meat is shelf-stable for a longer period of time than other preserved products because the process decreases oxidation.
How Long Do Freeze Dried Foods Stay Fresh?
PET | TAO freeze dried salmon treats list a “best by” date 18 months after production. As long as you keep the unopened bag at low humidity, the flavor will last 18 months or longer.
But, they may last much longer if kept under the right conditions.
Like beef jerky, as long as moisture can’t get to them, they will last a long time (years).
Can You Reconstitute Freeze Dried Salmon Treats In Water?
Freeze drying usually yields 25% of the original wet weight of the meat.
If you rehydrate the treats, they should quadruple in weight.
Thus 3 oz. should turn into 12 oz. when rehydrated.
