Dehydration is one of the oldest and most effective forms of food preservation. Dehydration allows you to preserve many types of food for indefinite periods by removing the moisture in meats, fruits and vegetables,which allows them to last for months instead of days without refrigeration. There are numerous health benefits associated with dehydrated foods, including concentrated taste, retention of valuable vitamins and minerals and no preservatives, additives or chemicals.
In addition to retaining almost 100% of the nutritional content of food, the dehydration process is widely considered one of the easiest and most economical methods of food preservation. The Optimum P200 Dehydrator enables you to preserve fresh, nutritious foods in your own home at a fraction of the cost, with shelf lives of up to decades long.
The Optimum P200 Dehydrator is easy to use, versatile and equipped with a 40-hour digital timer, adjustable thermostat and comprehensive drying guide.
