With years of experience in the market, Prativita is a specialist in the dehydration process. Not only that, but it has the advantage of being located in southern Brazil, one of the country’s best regions for farming and livestock raising. Dehydration is a natural method for conserving food, which does away with the addition of preservatives and does not destroy cell structure, in this way maintaining the shape, color, aroma and flavor of the ingredient after dehydration. It consists of removing the water from food through forced circulation of hot air. Reduced moisture inhibits the growth of fungi and bacteria (which need water to develop), increasing the product’s shelf-life, allowing it to be stored for up to 12 months at room temperature. Advantages of dehydrated foods:

• They are compact;
• They are easy to transport;
• They keep the same qualities for long periods;
• Available even between crops.
