Kale, And the Rise of Dehydrated Healthy Snacks

Kale is the recently infamous “Super Food” due to its impressive nutritional content of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants, providing a great source of vitamin K, A, C, omega fatty acids, flavonoids, iron, and calcium. These nutrients help keep our bodies healthy by regulating blood clotting, building cell membranes in our brain, and protecting against heart disease and stroke. 

Since fresh kale has a short shelf life, preserving it while keeping all its nutrients and benefits is a concern when introducing packaged Kale products to the market. It is worthy to mention that cooking, baking or pasteurizing of food, means sacrificing a large amount of their nutritional benefits, while adding chemical preservatives has been linked to a plethora of health issues that the health-conscious public are, rightly so, trying to avoid. 

So, how can we preserve food and make it readily available to everyone without draining it from its benefits, or adding harmful chemicals to it? The answer is food dehydration, and it is a very old solution that some packaged food manufacturers are starting to use when making their packaged products.  

Food dehydration is one of the oldest methods of food preservation known to mankind. The process of drying, inhibits the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and mold through the removal of water. This process was used by prehistoric peoples to preserve seeds by sun-drying, to store food for later consumption during the harsh winter months. It is worthwhile noting that unlike most other preservation techniques, dehydration does not breakdown the enzymes and nutrients, thus preserving all the goodness by keeping food in its “Raw” state. 

Kips Kale Chips, a newly founded San Diego based company, is using food dehydration to produce raw and heathy kale chips. They only add natural ingredients to make their healthy product tasty, providing snack lovers with a guilt-free, nutrient filled, bag of goodness, proving that healthy and tasty can coexist.The recent rise in childhood obesity and diabetes is now becoming a world-wide pandemic. Therefore, finding alternatives to sugar and hydrogenated-oil filled snacks should be a priority, especially to parents trying to raise a healthy family. Luckily, companies such as Kips Kale Chips, make it easier to switch to a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing taste or flavor.
