Dehydration is the process in which content of water or moisture is removed from the food product. Dehydration of meat is a simple process but it is an efficient method of preservation. Dehydration increases the shelf life of the meat product hence it can be stored for several months without any requirement of a refrigerator. As the water content in the meat product is low, chances of microbial attack decreases and possibility of spoilage by the microorganism is also prevented. However chances of deterioration of fatty tissue by rancidity still remains. So to prevent rancidity most of the time only lean meat is preferred. Continuous evaporation of water content from the meat changes the shape of the meat slice through shrinkage. The texture of meat becomes hard as well as the met piece becomes darker in color and lighter in weight. Dehydrated meat products are rich in nutritional value and are available at low price as well. Dehydration of meat product should be done in an aseptic condition and sterilization of the instrument used in this process should be done properly.
