Freeze-dried. A manufacturing process where water is removed from a product in a controlled environment. The resulting product is a dry, flaky material of high stability (i.e. its shelf life is much longer than aqueous products). Prior to use, the lyophilized product must be reconstituted (re-hydrated) with an appropriate sterile diluent.
