Dehydrated and freeze-dried are not the same although they may seem very similar to each other. It is true that both would require the dehydration of different products but when you say dehydrated, this means that 95% of the moisture of the product has already been removed.

Freeze-dried food is also dehydrated but it has already been cooked. A lot of people know that when food has already been cooked, it can last longer. The fact that it has been freeze-dried after means that it will definitely last longer. Some food products may even last up to five years as long as it is stored in the right place.

Some people may become confused when they see the label as “dehydrated.” They may think that this is the same as “freeze-dried” but these two are actually different. Dehydrated means that up to 95% of the product’s moisture has been removed.

Dehydrated food will have a shelf life of up to a year but freeze-dried food will have a shelf life of about five years. Freeze-dried food is different from dehydrated in the sense that it has already been cooked. If you would decide to eat it, you just need to heat it which means that preparation can be so much shorter. You just need to boil your food to ensure that it will be hydrated before you prepare it.
