Compared to products produced with other preservation methods, dehydrated products have almost unlimited shelf life and substantially lower transportation, handling, and storage costs. In the United States, they provide opportunities for maximum convenience, flexibility and economics as industrial and food service ingredients, whereas in other countries they are also frequently consumer products, as well.
