In short, here are some of the pros and cons of drying foods for our daily diets:

- Since it’s dried, its dried weight be as little as 10% of the original weight. Talk about great thing that comes in small packets.
- Drying foods can be a great way to save foods that are bought in excess.
- (Great one for healthy diet) Dried fruits are a sweet alternative to sugary treats, and dried herbs and vegetables add flavor to otherwise boring foods
- The dried food might not taste the same as the fresh ones. But not necessarily worse.
- Moisture can cause dried foods left in the food in the drying process or allowed in during storage can cause mold on food.
