Why Using a Freeze Dry Machine Dehydrator Food
Efficient Storing : Dried foods take less than one sixth of their original storage space and don’t require the ongoing electrical drain of a refrigerator or freezer. Simply pack the foods clean, dry, insect proof containers or canning jars, plastic freezer containers with tight fitting lids, plastic freezer bags or vacuum seal bags (in single portion sizes) and store them in your pantry for the perfect go-to snack.
This significant reduction in size means that you can fit a lot of preserves into a small area – which is especially ideal for camping, trekking and large families.
Portability: Dehydrated foods are compact, lightweight and they travel well.
As highlighted earlier, healthy foods and snacks can be expensive and you can’t always find, or have access to them on the go. By dehydrating foods at home, you can create the perfect snack for your children’s school lunch boxes, or a midday hunger-buster for while you’re on the road or at work.
Precision Drying: If you’ve ever tried to dehydrate foods in your oven then you’ll understand the frustration it can sometimes cause – not only because of the higher electricity costs that you’ll have to pay, but because most household ovens don’t even start their temperature gauges below 90 degrees (celsius)! In contrast, by using a food dehydrator, you have complete control when drying foods at lower temperatures. For example; the BioChef Arizona Dehydrator offers an adjustable thermostat range of 35 – 70 degrees celsius – significantly lower than your average household oven.
Because of these low temperatures, food created with a dehydrator is often considered as ‘raw food’. A raw food diet has many benefits, and is said to preserve the living nutrients and enzymes in fruits and vegetables unlike the heating process which is said to eliminate or deplete these from food.
Subsequently, if you’re on a raw food diet, or are just trying to eat more raw foods, a dehydrator provides a good alternative for preparing foods at a temperature below 46 degrees celsius – the threshold temperature where enzymes and nutrients are considered to be maintained – than any other kitchen appliance on the market.
