ALL ABOUT DEHYDRATED FOOD
Air-dried and dehydrated foods are often confused for the other as both go through similar processes of slow and gentle drying.
The difference lies in the presence of heat. Dehydrated foods process the raw ingredients at low temperatures to remove moisture.
The nutrient profile of dehydrated diets is like the unadulterated raw ingredients used.
Dehydrated food due to the low temperatures used is not considered cooked but because there was an application of heat, is not completely raw either.
Remember to rehydrate dehydrated meals to increase the moisture content and enhance the benefits of the product.
