Here "干货” means something useful, informative rather than "dehydrated goods" or "dry goods", which basically means some informative materials or knowledge... I've consulted this question from many of my English teachers yet neither of them were getting the point.

Here are some alternative answers (yet not the most suitable word/phrase) :

Like "real shit" (sounds rude) Like " real stuff" (not an idiomatic expression?) Some even recommends this word "bone" which is unique to drugs field( means high purity drug)

I still doubt about it. Could someone give me a better translation?

  • Use the phrase in a sentence, then it will be much easier to tranlate. – Pedroski Aug 12 '15 at 9:45

    I don't know, but if you put the phrase in a context, a sentence or more, then it will be easier to adjudge a meaning-in-context. – Pedroski Aug 12 '15 at 10:48

"干货" recently becomes a "Internet words" means evidence.

When somebody talking about rumor without any evidence, some other may ask like this "来点干货"

Actually he is asking evidence like pictures, references or so

"干货" means solid, useful, practical and concise information with no fluff.

干(乾) means dry here, like 干果(乾果) means dry fruit. Here, 干货(乾貨) means dry foods. It means something like an opinion, a speech, or an article is helpful, pragmatic, practical, but not vacuous, theoretical, nonsensical, in Internet circles.
