Know More About Solar Dehydration
Solar dehydration is a natural and energy-efficient method of preserving various substances, primarily food, by utilising solar energy to remove moisture. The process involves exposing the material to be dried to the sun’s rays, where a solar collector traps and converts light into heat. This heated air is then circulated over the products in a controlled environment, promoting evaporation and dehydration.
Solar Drying helps retain the natural flavour, colour, taste and nutritional content of the dried products, making them healthier and more appealing. Solar dehydration plays a significant role in reducing food waste and extending the shelf life of perishable items, contributing to sustainable and eco-friendly practices.
