For Dried Products

Brings out the best in dried products

OptiDry is an innovative technology that can be applied to fruits, vegetables and herbs, before the drying or dehydrating processes. OptiCeptTM creates pores on the plant cells allowing the water to be released. This results in reduced drying time leading to enhanced flavor and vivid color on the final dried product.

Advantages of the OptiDry method

  • Retains aroma compounds
  • Decreases drying time
  • Preserves color intesity
  • Improves rehydrating properties
  • Intensifies taste
