Item Type: Student Project Report
Additional Information: The foam-mat drying technique can be successfully employed for drying a variety of fruit juice concentrates and pulps. The dried powders have good reconstitution characteristics. Foam bed drying studies are particularly applicable for drying of fruit pulps such as custard apple(Annona Squamosa), chickoo(Archus sapota) and banana(Musa paradisica) which otherwise cannot be processed for preservation. Some of the commonly used foaming agents like tween 80, egg albumin, soya protein isolate are considered. Densities of the foams from various concentrations of foaming agents were compared. The drying studies were carried out in a cabinet tray drier with temperature controls. The drying curves are drawn for different operating conditions. Falling rate is observed for the foam at different timings. Drying rates are compared and the drying time is evaluated by drying the foam at 55°C to 75°C. The studies are helpful for evaluating best drying to get good quality dried powders
