Welcome to Food Dehydrating South Africa

Food dehydration is no longer reserved for drying fruit and making fruit rolls. A food dehydrator is the new must-have appliance for every home. Whether you want to make healthy snacks for your children, have useful equipment for use in crafting, are a biltong lover (vegan too), a health enthusiast hoping to get more flavour and nutritional value from the foods you eat or perhaps want to make healthy treats for your pets, and so much more, a quality dehydrator is your go-to equipment. We hope that our site will give inspiration into the possibilities in the world of dehydrating.

Make Your Own Health Powders – It’s the New Rage

There is an ongoing debate as to whether we should supplement our diets with artificially manufactured vitamins and minerals. Are they healthy to consume? Are they even absorbed by your body or are you merely converting your hard earned cash into “yellow liquid waste”. At the same time do you want to risk not getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs? Making your own health powders to add to your smoothies and family meals may be the answer to this dilemma.


Dehydrator Basics and How To Use Them

Health and Wellness adviser Markus Rothkranz together with Raw Vegan chef Cara Brotman show examples of delicious dehydrated foods. A dehydrator will suit everyone who wants to make healthy natural wheat-free and or gluten-free crackers, dehydrated fruit, non gluten garlic naan, cookies, fake meat and meat substitutes. You can also make “biltong”, pet treats and dry crafts. You are only limited by your imagination.

Waste Not Want Not. Turn Your Excess Fruit Into An Irrestible Snack

Fruit leather – or fruit roll-up – is a great way to utilize ripe fruits in a form that will last into the off season. This is awesome because it means you can continue enjoying the benefits of fresh fruit and veggies without paying a lot for imported fruit when they’re out of season – especially if you make the fruit leather raw like this it maintains great nutritional value.
