Air drying kinetics at 35, 50, 60 and 75 °C and water adsorption and desorption isotherms at 5, 25, 40 and 55 °C of the brown seaweed Bifurcaria bifurcata were obtained. Water sorption isotherms were modelled by means of the two-parameter Halsey model. A model to estimate equilibrium moisture content of adsorption and desorption processes as function of(More)
The effect of the seaweed drying temperatures (35, 45, 55 and 85 °C), prior to the biopolymer extraction, on the rheological properties of kappa/iota-hybrid carrageenan (KI) gels in NaCl extracted from Mastocarpus stellatus seaweed is reported, together with the thermal stability of obtained gels. The average molecular mass (ranged between 2.25 × 106 and(More)
The effect of air drying temperature on physical properties of dried Fucus vesiculosus seaweed and the antiradical capacity and composition of its aqueous extracts were studied. Air drying was performed in a tray dryer employing different temperatures (35, 40, 60 and 75 °C). Dried seaweed (12.2 g water (100 g)−1 dry solid) was milled and particle size(More)
