Dallas, TX (PressExposure) September 16, 2009 -- Food-Dehydrator.com has released a food dehydrator calculator designed to help users calculate the weight of various food after it has been dehydrated or calculate the amount of pre-dehydrated food needed to achieve a dehydrated food weight goal.
Food-Dehydrator.com's food dehydrator weight calculator is designed to help you estimate the weight of various foods after they have been dehydrated. Or if you have a specific dehydrated amount of food that is needed or desired, the food dehydrator weight calculator will estimate the pre-dehydrated weight amount needed to achieve that dehydrated food goal.
The water content of food is generally very high, typically between 80% to 95% for various fruits and vegetables and 50% to 75% for different meats. Removing moisture from food inhibits various bacteria, yeasts and molds from growing and spoiling it while also reducing the weight of the dehydrated food. Food dehydrators are ideal tools for the preservation and storage of lightweight food.
