Abstract : Dehydrated frozen peas and dehydrofrozen diced carrots, from the quality standpoint, are at least as acceptable as conventionally frozen diced carrots. These vegetables required approximately 50 per cent less storage space than their conventionally frozen counterparts. These vegetables required no more effort to prepare (including thawing and rehydration) than conventionally frozen peas and conventionally frozen diced carrots. The dehydrofrozen peas had a consistency slightly inferior to conventionally frozen peas but superior to canned peas. The dehydrofrozen diced carrots were slightly inferior in shape to conventionally frozen and canned diced carrots. A more convenient size package should be provided preferably a 1-1/2 pound size.
