There are many surprising reasons to enjoy dehydrated foods. First, their health benefits will make them a welcome addition to your kitchen and life. Dehydrated foods can help eliminate added sugars, chemicals, and preservatives from your daily diet. Dehydrating food has never been easier. It's a technique that's been used since prehistoric times when our ancestors used sun-dried seeds, fruit, and even meat to preserve them during migrations and seasonal changes when food sources were scarce. People have turned to dehydrated and dried foods for healthier, more natural, vitamin-rich food sources that are easy to make at home and have a long shelf life.
There are several drying methods, including sun drying and oven drying. However, both methods are time-consuming and not the most convenient way to dehydrate or dry food. Modern dehydrators have become a common method of food drying. It dehydrates all your favorite foods easily, removing 75% of the water a fraction of the time.
