Dehydration is a method of food preservation which works by removing the moisture in food. When you remove that moisture, the microorganisms like mold can’t grow and break it down. The result is a shelf stable product that doesn’t spoil for many years. When dehydrated, packed, and stored properly, fruits have a shelf life of 5 years and vegetables have an 8-10 year shelf life.
