Why are salt and sugar used in the production of dried meat and dried fruits?

1 year ago

Substances that maintain a highly hypertonic environment, like sugar and salt, are used in the production of dried meat, fruits or fish (for example, cod) because the material to be conserved is then dehydrated and the resulting dryness prevents the growth of populations of decomposer beings (since these beings also lose water and die).
