Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) finds its applications as an alternative sweetener in powder form. The effect of different process parameters (feed concentration, feed flow rate, inlet air temperature), different additives (maltodextrin, gums, starch), and anticaking agents (in different combinations and concentrations) during spray drying were investigated. FOS solution with 2% magnesium oxide as an additive gave a maximum powder yield (43% w/w), and the spray-dried powder size was fine and the texture was like talcum powder. Flow properties and microbial analysis were found to be satisfactory. The addition of anticaking agents did not have a significant effect either on the color of the powder or on FOS content, indicating good quality of the powder with respect to flowability, microbial load, and texture.
