2) The sun-drying process is slow – in the case of cocoa it appears that slow drying is preferable and that majority opinion is that slowly dried cocoa is of better quality and more aromatic Sun-drying of the crop takes place in a sun- or natural dryer which makes use of direct solar radiation and air movement to achieve drying process [3 4]

Jul 13 2010– The purpose of this paper is to investigate the physical and mechanical characteristics of the roasted cashew nut during fracture by subjecting the nut to varying impact load tests at different orientations to ascertain the critical impact load that fractures the shell without damaging the kernel within This load value was correlated with other parameters

Development of a cocoa beans batch dryer

The drying air temperature was measured at intervals with K-type thermocouple At temperature above 600C (recommended drying temperature for cocoa) Hii et al [6] and Donald et al [14] a paddle made of metal head and wooden handle was used to draw out the firewood from the heating duct to prevent overheating 2 1 Description of the batch dryer
