Essicco is Siqur Salute's food dehydrator.
Food drying is a natural method of food preservation employed since the dawn of humanity. It consists of removing 80-90% of water from food, thus blocking the growth of bacteria responsible for the degradation. Drying food is healthy: unlike in industrial production, food won't undergo sudden changes in temperature, nor are additioned with chemicals or condiments (such as oil, salt, sugar) that would result in nutritional variations. On the contrary, dehydration leaves pratically unchanged the properties of food.
