How Does it Work?
Food drying, also called food dehydration is the process of removing moisture from food, allowing food to be stored safely for later use. Dehydrating food opens a new dimension in preserving fruits, vegetables and meats; you will be able to perfectly capture the fresh-picked in-season flavor and nutrition of almost any food. Compared with canning and freezing, food drying is the least damaging form of food preservation, dehydrating retains 95-97% of the nutrients in the original food.
All you have to do is prepare the food, fill the trays, and stack them onto the base. Then simply set the temperature and the shut off time and you are ready to go. Dehydrated food tastes good too! Since natural flavors concentrate as you remove moisture, the dried product is naturally delicious. You will find that drying food is practical and economical as well as easy. It all starts with your state of the art food dehydrator.
