Dried Products

If you open your pantry at home you are sure to find at least one or more dried food products. Drying food is one of the oldest ways to preserve food. By drying food you are removing all moisture from it. Bacteria does not have a chance to grow and spoil the food items as all moisture has been removed which is very important for the shelf life of these food items and our health.
 
There are many different methods of drying food items each with their own advantages. These include spray drying, commercial food dehydrators, household ovens, freeze-drying, sunlight and smoking to name a few.
 
Drying food does not destroy all the nutrients making it a healthy snack. A wide variety of food such as fruit, vegetables, fish and other meat can be dehydrated. Drying is also a lot easier than canning and freezing. All you have to do is rinse the food items, cut them and place it on trays in the oven or sun. Within a few hours the food will be dry and ready to eat.
 
Natural flavours and sugars tend to be more concentrated once the food is dried. This gives the food a much sweeter and stronger flavour than fresh food. Drying also preserves important nutrients that cooking usually destroys.
 
Many dried fruit and spices can be eaten straight from the container. Others should be rehydrated. Most dried food products should be stored in a cool dry place. Dried food should also be used within six to twelve months for best quality.
 
You can easily dry your own food. It does however require time and some knowledge of food drying principles.
