HOW WE PRESERVE FOOD
WITH AIR DRYING

Air Drying food ingredients

Air drying is a widely used and proven drying process for food products. Air-dried ingredients are used in many areas of food production. Basically, there are two different ways to preserve food by air drying.

Sun-
drying

Strong sunlight and low humidity are the best natural basic conditions for air drying. In countries with this climate, food has traditionally been preserved in this way since time immemorial. The natural raw materials are laid out in the open for several days and turned several times in the sun. In this way, the water is naturally removed from the products.

 

The amount of residual moisture varies depending on the type of product and customer requirements. Sun drying is a simple, cost-effective and natural process that we use frequently, especially for Mediterranean herbs, spices and dried fruits.

Industrial
air-drying

Air drying is also a time-honored process, but today we use it for Freeze-Dry Ingredients on an industrial scale.

In contrast to sun drying, industrial air drying with belt and tray dryers is more controllable. In this mechanical process, we remove moisture from the raw materials very uniformly by supplying hot air. In this way, the natural raw materials are preserved for a long time without the addition of preservatives.
