How is the flower lyophilized?

Lyophilization is another way to preserve pansies. It consists of dehydrating the edible flower, subjecting it to rapid freezing and eliminating the ice subsequently by slight heating under vacuum which transforms it into steam. These are the states that follow the process of lyophilization:

1º Freezing of the edible flower
2º The pressure is reduced so that the frozen water sublimates and passes to a gaseous state without passing through a liquid state.

Thanks to this process, the molecular state of the flower can be preserved, and therefore its organoleptic properties, while maintaining an aspect very similar to the original. In other words, a long-lasting ingredient with a longer shelf life is achieved.

This product does not contain humidity, so it can be preserved for a minimum of 2 years. But it can last up to 5 years. We recommend storing the lyophilized pansy in a dry place without direct light. You can store it next to the spices or in a kitchen cabinet.
