    Question about dehydrated okra

    Recently I sampled some dehyrated okra from the local health food store. Must say that I am hooked but does this fall within PB guidelines? if there is a post that already answers this just point me to it.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Dehydrated foods are generally fine as long as all they are doing is removing water without adding preservatives or other chemicals.

    I'm wary of dried foods due to portion control and digestive difficulty. They're useful for traveling/camping or flavor garnishes on other food but IMO one of the major defects of SAD is how dry it is--fresh meat and produce is 70~95% water.

    I love these awful dehydrated sno peas the hubby buys.

    They are coated in some sort of super tasty substance of unknown but most certainly artificial origins. They are as light as a feather - and a guy can eat a whole bag before you've noticed. All is just great until you add water. At which point you feel like you ate a volkswagon.

    Just sayin'

    If the ingredients are just okra, or just okra and salt, I'd put these in the "unlimited" column. If there's some kind of polyunsaturated oil involved, I'd put them in the "avoid at almost any cost" column.
