Benefits of a food dehydrator

Dehydration is one of the oldest methods of preserving food. Using a food dehydrator preserves food for much longer than its ordinary shelf life.

Dehydrated foods can be a healthier alternative to many snacks, use up left over fruit and veggies and you can add them to enhance salads, museli, baking even smoothies.

Dehydrating food can save you money and reduce food waste. Stock your pantry with healthy, homemade, easily portable snacks.

Dehydrated foods keep their nutritional value. As a lightweight, nutrient-dense option, dehydrated foods are a go-to for health snacks for toddlers and families.

Almost anything can be dehydrated. Some common food items made with dehydration include:

  • Fruit leather and rolls
  • Soup mixes 
  • Yoghurts
  • Herbs
  • Homemade potato, sweet potato, kale, beet or zucchini chips
  • Flavoured powders such as lemon, lime or orange which you can use in teas or cocktails!
