In continuing with our theme of getting healthy for the New Year, today we examine the benefits of dehydrating your own food as opposed to purchasing store-bought brands.
Food experts explain that an increasing number of people are searching for alternative ways of dehydrating foods. Luckily, there are two great ways of completing this task, by either using the oven or an electric dehydrator. Both of these methods have many similar benefits and are equally effective for dehydrating foods. No matter what method you choose, producing your own dehydrated foods is important because they contain crucial vitamins and minerals for your body. Conversely, store bought versions of these items can have large amounts of fat , salt, sugar, and chemical content. This can serve as important information for people who have sensitivities to salt and sugar. Another great point about dehydrating your own foods is that you can involve your entire family! Also, it serves as a great way to preserve seasonal fruits and vegetables so that they can be enjoyed any time of the year. Lastly, dehydration is easy to do, has minimal cleanup, and requires only a small investment if purchasing a food dehydrator, or none if you simply use your oven.
