Analysis Of The Current Situation Of Dehydrated Vegetable Market
In recent years, dehydrated vegetables have been in short supply, especially some vegetables with health functions (such as garlic, onion) and some wild vegetables in mountain and lake areas (such as bracken, wormwood).
The processing of fresh vegetables into dehydrated vegetables obviously has the following advantages:
1. Low moisture content, which can prolong the storage period and reduce the cost of storage, transportation, packaging, etc.;
2. The utilization rate of raw materials is high, and the requirements for raw materials are not high, especially the size and shape of raw materials;
3. After being processed into dehydrated vegetables, the application scope of fruit and vegetable raw materials is broadened.
my country's dehydrated fruit and vegetable processing enterprises have a wide range of distribution. There are dehydrated fruit and vegetable (or aquatic products) processing enterprises in all provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities across the country, but the scale and benefits of the enterprises are very different. Among them, the leading enterprises with large scale, good benefits and strong driving force Mainly distributed in Shandong, Guangxi, Zhejiang, Gansu, Liaoning, Fujian and other provinces, especially in coastal areas such as Shandong, Liaoning and Zhejiang.
It is understood that the processing of dehydrated vegetables generally includes three methods: natural air drying, hot air drying and freeze drying. At present, natural air drying and hot air drying are common in our country. Dehydrated vegetables can be applied to almost all fields of food processing, and can be used to improve the nutritional content of products, improve the color and flavor of products, and enrich the variety and structure of products.
In China, traditional farm vegetables such as mushrooms and fungus are more naturally air-dried, while freeze-dried vegetables are more leafy. Like green beans, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, garlic, etc. Especially garlic powder, my country exports more, mainly by hot air drying or freeze drying.
Due to the rapid development of the world food industry in recent years, dehydrated vegetables were once in short supply, and the market gap was large. In addition, due to the increased production costs of vegetables in some developed countries, many countries and regions are willing to import cheap commodity vegetables from my country. China can just take this opportunity to transform the advantages of vegetable resources into product advantages and economic advantages. Therefore, dehydrated vegetables are very popular in China. The above is all the content of the analysis of the current situation of the dehydrated vegetable industry.
