Impact of blanching pretreatment on the drying rate and energy consumption during far-infrared drying of Paprika Traditional drying methods including hot-air drying can cause many undesirable changes in plant materials that affect the quality of final products such as excessive shrinkage discoloration oxidation of functional Pretreatment to overcome physical seedcoat dormancy are designed to soften puncture wear away or split the seedcoat in order to render it permeable without damaging the embryo and endosperm within They include physical and biological methods dry heating and soaking in water or chemical solutions

Drying methods

The preservation of foods by drying is the time-honored and most common method used by humans and the food processing industry Dehydration (or drying) is defined as 'the application of heat under controlled conditions to remove the majority of the water normally present in a food by evaporation' (or in the case of freeze drying by sublimation )

Refractance Window Drying (RWD1 and RWD2) Oven Drying (OD1 and OD2) and Sun Drying (SD1 and SD2) methods Effects of these drying methods in terms of physico-chemical properties rehydration ability color parameters ascorbic acid total phenolic content and antioxidant activity of red Jalapeno pepper slices were also studyed

Effects of five different drying methods on the antioxidant properties (AOP) of leaves of Alpinia zerumbet Etlingera elatior Curcuma longa and Kaempferia galanga were assessed All methods of thermal drying (microwave- oven- and sun-drying) resulted in drastic declines in total phenolic content (TPC) ascorbic acid equivalent antioxidant capacity (AEAC) and ferric

Jul 08 2020Read on to learn about herb drying methods so you can choose the right one for you Hanging Herbs to Dry Hanging herbs to dry at room temperature is the easiest and least expensive way for how to dry herbs Remove the lower leaves and bundle four to six branches together securing with string or a rubber band Place them upside down in a brown

oven-drying method (this is "Method A – Oven-Drying Primary" as detailed in ASTM D4442-07) is intended as the sole primary method and is structured for research purposes where the highest accuracy or degree of precision is needed and requires a specific oven type (i e a vented forced convection oven) closed weighing jars and the

Mar 16 2020Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of various pre-treatments and drying methods on the quality and antioxidant properties of persimmon slices The persimmon fruits were harvested at maturity stage and divided into three groups: control without any pre-treatments pre-treatment with 2% sucrose after slicing and treatment

Drying time varies widely depending on the drying method selected and the size and amount of moisture in food pieces Sun drying requires the most time an electric dehydrator requires the least Vegetables take from 4 to 12 hours to dry fruits take 6–20 hours meats require about 12

Pairwise comparison of different drying methods shows that methods A–B differs significantly at 5% level with respect to ΔE and difference with respect to ΔE and final moisture content was significant at 5% level between the methods A–C and B–C the values of mean difference at 5% level for methods A–B and B–C with respect to ΔE was much higher which suggest that

The drying characteristics and microstructure of goji berry using different pretreatment methods under EHD drying process were investigated The results showed that the drying rate after pretreatment was significantly higher than those of non-pretreated goji berry and the different pretreatment methods had different effects on the drying

Effect of different processing methods on the nutrients and antinutrient many pretreatment methods have been adopted by great scholars which includes soaking squeezing blanching boiling and cooking (Ajala (1982) drying and squeezing were carried out according to the method of Agbaire and Emoyan (2012) Chemical analysis

Abstract: Effects of pretreatments with trehalose on drying of sliced vegetables (potato and carrot) were experimentally investigated Two different pretreatment methods were tested Sliced vegetables were steam-blanched and then immersed in a sugar solution In another method sliced vegetables were coated with sugar powder and then steam

Due to the high moisture content of lignocellulose researchers had studied its effects on various pretreatment methods such as ionic liquid pretreatment grinding and steam explosion (Table 3) Grinding of wet lignocellulose would consume more energy and finally have a bigger particle size than dried feedstock (Barakat et al 2015)

Apr 01 2014The most common one is to construct a drying curve by taking samples during different stages of drying cycle against the drying time and establish a drying curve When the drying is complete the product temperature will start to increase indicating the completion of drying at a specific desired product-moisture content

food preservation

Food preservation any of a number of methods by which food is kept from spoilage after harvest or slaughter Such practices date to prehistoric times Some of the oldest preservation methods include drying and refrigeration Modern methods are more sophisticated Learn about the importance and methods of preservation

increased fat content while the blanched with all drying methods was decreased fat content decrement Different studies showed sun dried root and tuber crops had high fat than other drying methods [3 16 23 27] The reduced fat content of the blanched OFSP was due to oxidation at increased temperature Ash is important food constituent

Different pre-treatment methods have been developed for fruit drying among which are lemon juice salt solution honey dip ascorbic acid sulfuring osmotic pretreatment and blanching (Karim 2005) If no pre-treatment is done the fruits will continue to darken after they are dried For long-term storage of dried fruits

Freezing food: questions and answers Q: What are the benefits and risks of vacuum packing foods for storage? A: Vacuum packaging machines or vacuum sealers removes air and can extend the storage time of refrigerated dried and frozen foods Remember vacuum packaging is not a substitute for the heat processing of home canned foods or for refrigerator or freezer

The bonus of sunlight are ultra violate rays which also serve to kill microbes Modern methods of dehydration use circulating air that is heated just enough to promote dehydration without cooking the food Dehydration is the method of food preservation used for meat jerky dried fruit or fruit leathers and herbs

Osmotically dehydrated samples had the lowest drying time while pretreated samples dried faster than untreated samples generally The nutritional quality of the dried samples however varied with the different pretreatment methods This indicates that pretreatment enhances drying rate and also affects the quality of the final dried product
