Dehydrated Food


Food dehydration is not a particularly new science. In fact, humans have been preserving food this way for at least 5,000 years. We offer a wide range of top quality Nutristore™ dehydrated products of several varieties, including fruits, vegetables, meats, and even entire meals. With a shelf life between 10 and 20 years at normal temperatures, or even longer as the temperature drops, our dehydrated foods will keep you and your family well fed in the event of an emergency.

Take a look at some of our most popular dehydrated Nutristore™ options and stock up in our store.

Benefits of Dehydrated Food

So what’s so great about dehydrating food, anyway? Lots of things! Dehydrated food lasts longer, it’s easier to store, it keeps a high nutritional value, just to name a few benefits. When it comes down to it, dehydrated food is the backbone of a well-stocked food storage.

Long Lasting

Probably the biggest benefits of dehydrated food is that it lasts for an incredibly long time. If it’s stored at around, or just below room temperature, it generally lasts between 10 and 20 years. Storing it at cooler temperatures can make it last even longer than that.

That’s one important thing to keep in mind: dried food products tend to last longer in cooler environments, so it’s still a good idea to avoid storing your food in a hot garage or tool shed. A good rule of thumb to follow is that every temperature drop of about 10°F will effectively double the shelf life of your food. This can vary depending on several other factors as well, such as humidity and the quality of your storage containers, but it’s a good starting point.

Easy to store

Speaking of storage, dehydrated food is easier to store than most other types of food. Because food shrinks as you remove the water from it—by 50% or more—it takes up a lot less room, so you can fit more of it into your storage space. It also can be stored at room temperature, meaning you don’t have to worry about packing everything into a freezer or refrigerator. If the power goes out, you don’t have to worry about it spoiling.

Because water accounts for a significant percentage of the weight in many food products, dehydrating food makes it comparatively lightweight. This means that should you need to move your food storage for any reason, such as moving to a new house, the burden will be significantly smaller.

Travels well

One thing that people often forget about food storage is that it does need to be cycled out regularly. This doesn’t mean that you should just throw everything out once it hits its expiration date. If you’re planning properly, you will have used it before that ever happens. Even outside of the event of an emergency, dehydrated fruits can be bagged and brought along for an easy, healthy snack. Dehydrated foods are also very light, so they’re perfect to bring on a backpacking trip. Its small size and light weight make it simple to pack and bring with you anywhere you go.

Rehydrating is simple, too. It’s simply a matter of soaking your dried fruits, vegetables, or meats in water for about 20 to 30 minutes and allowing them to get soft. Dehydrated meats and vegetables are an excellent choice for making stew on the trail. Just add water, heat, and serve!

A healthy option

Lots of foods with a long shelf life are loaded with preservatives to keep them from going bad. Dehydrated foods, however, don’t have that issue. In fact, their nutritional value remains virtually unchanged. Dried fruits and vegetables are high in both fiber and carbohydrates and are naturally low in fat. They also retain the same vitamins and minerals as their fresh counterparts, such as Vitamin A, potassium, sodium, and magnesium, none of which are negatively impacted by drying.

Great taste

Even though “dehydrated” may make you think of dry, flavorless food, that’s not actually what you’ll get. Dried fruits are essentially concentrated, meaning their flavor is actually enhanced by the drying process.
