Food preservation was always very important in human history with different techniques used with mostly an attempt to make summer harvest last through the winter, and lately we’re seeing a rise in food preservation and mostly with the modern food dehydrators on the market. In the dehydration process, up to 90 percent of moisture in foods is removed and this way the dehydrated foods will last much much longer than usual and you will not need to lay your tomatoes or thin layered foods in the sun. You will not be adding any preservatives, additives and chemicals or the amount salt you’ve had to use for preserving meat and it will all be natural, flavoursome and healthy as most of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals will still be in your food. When you dehydrate foods it will go down to less than half its size and you will need less storage space for them and in containers on your shelves they will be fine for months and will save you money as you won’t spend much money on more expensive and less healthy snacks at the shops and by buying foods in bulk as well.
