Freeze-drying is a dehydration process by freezing the material and then reducing the surrounding pressure to allow the frozen water in the material to sublime directly from the solid phase to the gas phase.

Freeze-drying causes less damage to the substance than other dehydration methods using higher temperatures. With high temperatures the water evaporates but also the essential minerals and vitamins are damaged. Furthermore, freeze-drying does not usually cause shrinkage or toughening of the material being dried. In addition, flavours, smells and nutritional content generally remain unchanged, making the process popular for preserving food.

Therefore, compared to the competition who does not freeze dry, the amount of antioxidants are much lower. See here the example of our freeze dried Acai compared to the competition. The amount of antioxidants is expressed in ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity). The higher the ORAC, the higher amount of antioxidants. See for your self that our freeze dried is much higher in quality compared to the competition (page 2):

Our product freeze dried Acai (sample LA1324): 125,878.
The non freeze dried Acai from the competitor (sample LA1325): 69,763.
Our product freeze dried Acai contains almost twice as much!
