Quick question about sponges and vacuums

  • #1
A bit of an odd question, but what would happen if a saturated sponge was exposed to a process similar to vacuum sealing for shipping goods? Would the water be forced out as the volume of the sponge decreased?

Seems like it would, although depending on the air evacuation point/area, the water evacuation may not be complete.

Can you post a couple videos of typical food sealing mechanisms?
