Air drying is a natural way to preserve food without using any artificial preservatives. Unlike dehydration, the air-dried food isn’t dried with heat, whereas it is air-dried in low temperatures in order to remove the moisture via evaporation. Air-dried food can be obtained from different types of techniques, including hot air drying, two-stage air drying, and microwave drying, among others. The air-dried food retains most of its appearance and color as compared to the original food, which is mostly due to the absence of moisture in the food. When the food is sufficiently dried, the absence of moisture hinders the growth of various microorganisms, such as molds, yeast, and bacteria. Thus, helping in increasing the shelf life of the food.

Market Dynamics

The continuously changing lifestyle, rapidly growing population, coupled with the improving consumer spending, especially across the developing economies, such as India, Brazil, China, and Argentina, are expected to be the key drivers influencing the market growth. Additionally, changing eating habits in regards to increasing health concerns and the readiness to pay premium prices for healthy food provides an impetus to the market growth.
