Abstract : The patent concerns a method of freeze-vacuum drying meat by: slicing unfrozen meat into thin slices prior to drying, freezing the meat while it is in a certain form and compressed condition, and then subjecting it to vacuum to freeze-dry. When the frozen and compressed meat is subjected to vacuum, at least part of the heat of sublimation of the moisture is supplied to the meat along the reverse sides of the peaks and the portions of the meats that are compressed.
