Preservatives and Treatment Options:

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