Dried fruits vegetables herbs and spices are produced in and sourced from many countries worldwide but they have been increasingly reported to be involved in outbreaks and alerts due to the presence of foodborne pathogens such as Salmonella These dried products are mainly produced by solar drying and conventional air drying but a wide range of drying technologies are available

2015-4-1Vacuum drying can be a useful tool for solid products that are heat-sensitive Here are some guidelines for the selection and use of various types of vacuum dryers Drying is an essential unit operation in a variety of chemical process industries (CPI) sectors

Microwave drying: The drying treatment was performed in a microwave oven (Arelik MD574 İstanbul Turkey) at an output power level of 120 W Date slices were placed in thin layer on a rotating glass plate with a 245 mm diameter The moisture loss from the sample was recorded at 2-min intervals by removing the sample with the glass plate and

2012-8-20The process is similar to freeze-drying but is quicker and at a lower cost claims Tim Durance chairman co-CEO and co-inventor of the company's radiant energy vacuum (REV) technology We use microwave energy for the energy transfer without creating any heat in the process he says

The microwave drying and microwave drying combined with vacuum present the lowest drying times 0 87-h and 0 28-h respectively as opposed to traditional techniques (sun drying and solar drying) In terms of energy efficiency it was found that among the methods analysed the higher rates were observed for the fluidized bed dryer (28 0-64 0%

Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) was dried to a moisture level of 0 1 g water/g dry matter using a microwave-assisted hot air dryer Response surface methodology was used to optimize the drying conditions based on specific energy consumption and quality of dried okra The drying experiments were performed using a central composite rotatable design for three variables: air temperature (40–70 C

2017-12-15In drying warm temperatures cause the moisture to evaporate Low humidity allows moisture to move quickly from the food to the air Air current speeds up drying by moving the surrounding moist air away from the food Drying Foods Out-of-Doors Sun Drying The high sugar and acid content of fruits make them safe to dry in the sun Vegetables and
