What are the clear and white substances sometimes on the surface of freeze-dried fruits?

The clear, white substances on the surface of freeze-dried fruits are the natural sugars or other nutrients (i.e. proteins and vitamins) that occur naturally in the products. As freeze drying removes almost 100% of the water, even a small amount of the natural sugar and nutrients that appear on the surface of the products would be converted to their solid state, which shows up as light, white materials. Sometimes they are mistaken for foreign objects or contamination by untrained eyes, but there is nothing to worry about. This appearance is an intrinsic characteristic of freeze-dried food products.

Can freeze dried fruits become wilted?

Yes, freeze-dried fruits can become wilted because of the way they are dried. Freeze-dried fruits have a spongy character and absorb moisture quickly when exposed to air. They can also wilt in high temperatures (i.e. inside the trunk of a car on a hot summer day), even when left closed. However, this phenomenon can be easily corrected by placing the closed bag in a cool place (such as inside a refrigerator or near an air conditioning vent). It is important to note that if the Fruta Pocket becomes soggy, refrigerating the product will make it crispy again.
