Drying is the oldest method of food processing, which locks in the flavor and nutrients of the foods so that these foods can be enjoyed all year around. Through drying, the moisture from the food can be removed so that microorganisms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds will not be able to grow and the spoilage of food can be prevented. Thereby, the shelf life of food can be increased.
Dried processed food products like pasta and noodles are staple foods in several countries across the globe. Hectic lifestyles of consumers and the need for leisure has propelled the use of such convenient food products like dried ready meals, dried pasta and noodles, and several other dried processed food products that require minimal time for preparation.
