Dehydration techniques have come a long way in recent years. Old technology left as much as 30% moisture in the dehydrated products. Nor did these poorly dehydrated foods store very well. With present technology, moisture levels have been reduced to 2% or 3%. Gone are the pliable dehydrated foods. Now they break with a crisp “snap” when bent. With moisture levels reduced to 2%-3%, storage life has been increased to several years. In doing background work for this study, I opened up a can of dehydrated carrots and another can of onions that were 8 years old.
