How Is Dehydrated Food Made?
Dehydrated meals are prepared with ingredients processed in a food dehydrator. Large quantities of fruits, nuts or vegetables can be placed on dehydrator trays where moisture content is then slowly removed. A Food dehydrator can extract moisture from a wide range of foodstuffs without removing essential minerals and vitamins.
The drying process and drying times vary between ingredients that can include dried fruit, blueberries, dehydrated vegetables, mashed potatoes, risotto, apricots and even broccoli. Anaconda dehydrated meals are securely packed or vacuum sealed and ready to be enjoyed. While other campers head to the expensive grocery store, you can conveniently rehydrate your dehydrated meals, veggies, risotto, casseroles or other dehydrated food, then sit back and enjoy the serenity.
