The drying process maintains food’s natural flavor and nutritional value, as no chemical or mechanical processes alter the integrity of the food.
Dehydrating is simple, intuitive and accessible to everyone, requiring no special training or skills so you can easily create original flavors and develop new recipes.
Dehydration allows you to conserve the food of your choice throughout the year, from seasonal favorites to excess from your home garden. It helps reduce food waste and uses only a minimal amount of energy.
As the dehydration method is a one-time process, it does not require costly energy consumption to preserve your food, and food storage containers can be opened and closed without ruining the food inside.
