Preservatives and Treatment Options:

Dehydration itself increases shelf life by lowering the availability of water to microorganisms that cause spoilage. Infused apples are not usually preserved with sodium sulfite. The infusion process involves slightly blanching the apples, which significantly reduces enzymatic browning associated with dehydration by inactivating the enzymes.
