thank you becky! was just wondering really, b/c you only hear people talk about food that are high in water content, and i was curious as to whats low. I like to know what's good as well as what's "bad". i also was inquiring b/c i love things like dried fruit and veggies - and am always curious what their water content is like in comparison to other "dry" foods like crackers.

You can go to the:
USDA FOOD DATABASE website.
Type in a food, select portion size.
AND you will get the water content within the food.

Hope this helps
