Freeze-dried or lyophilization refers to a low-temperature, dehydration technique that involves freezing of various food products in the vacuum chamber. It aids in preserving food commodities by eliminating the risk of contamination and decomposition caused by microbial growth in the presence of air, light, and moisture. This, in turn, assists freeze-dried food in retaining its quality, maintaining nutritional values, extending shelf-life and reducing water quantity from the product for making it lightweight. At present, freeze-dried food is commercially available in varying forms, such as powders, granules, chunks, pieces, and flakes.
Freeze-Dried Food Market Trends:
The widespread adoption of freeze-dried food in the food and beverage (F&B) and hospitality sectors for preserving various food products, such as fruits, vegetables, bakery, meat, dairy, and snacks, is one of the prime factors driving the market growth. In line with this, rapid expansion in the food processing sector and the increasing demand for non-perishable, ready-to-eat (RTE) meals or convenience food products due to the rising on-the-go trend, hectic working schedules, and evolving lifestyles are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Additionally, the sudden outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and the consequent implementation of lockdowns across the globe have led to the massive employment of online and e-commerce distribution channels for purchasing and ordering frozen food, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. The extensive utilization of freeze-dried techniques for enabling the safe transportation of food products, along with its large-scale incorporation in pet food segment to enable longer preservation and convenient consumption is further considerably propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as strategic collaborations between top players, rising consumer awareness regarding the harmful effects of artificial additives, and the continuous investments in research and development (R&D) activities for introducing lightweight, freeze-dried nutritious snacks, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
