... That drying your fruits (dehydrating) causes massive loss of nutrients? 30 to 80% of its vitamins and antioxidant contents are GONE!

High heat during the drying process destroys the vitamins.

  1. Have just been wondering if fruit might keep more of their nutrients but not increase in histamines when drying by dipping in an aniti oxident first. When I was little, stopped breathing after lunch at school, only lasted a few minutes ,but realized later was from the dried apricots that had sulfur dioxide added. After that my mother dried apricots dipping them in vitamin C powder she put water in. Now, much older and trying to figure if salicylates has been a problem, as had realized do better without wheat, then oxalates, but still get histamine reactions. Am trying to increase sulfates that help deal with salic, , think they call it a PST enzyme, Thank you got recipes and research! Be Well (have found my frame of mind helps me the most, not the food,though enjoy experimenting ) Lynn D

    1. Hi Lynn! Thanks for dropping by. I don't know whether by dipping the fruit in an anti-oxidant would help. Would need to do more reading up on that.
