Dehydration is one of the oldest methods of food preservation known to man. The history of dehydrated food includes dried fish, Chinese tea leaves and preserved fruit, vegetables and meat. Today it is still put into practice and is beneficial for your health. Not only does it preserve food so it is readily available but it also provides the enzymes and nutrients you need for a healthy immune system. Food fermentation is also very beneficial for the immune system because it provides healthy bacteria to the gut flora which can fight against bacteria, viruses and 'diseases'.Below: Our dried fruit yeast is ready to go, our new additions to the fermenting family (zucchini with cucumber and red beets) and dehydrated banana chips. Yummy!
