Textural and rheological properties of stevia ice cream
Ice cream contains high sugar content and therefore it is in contradiction with the concept of healthy diet. The objective of this study is to determine the suitability of using stevia as anExpand
Effect of Drum Drying on Physico-chemical Characteristics of Dragon Fruit Peel (Hylocereus polyrhizus)
Abstract Dragon fruit (Hylocereus polyrhizus) peel is high in antioxidants and fiber; however, it is discarded during processing. In this study, changes in physico-chemical properties of dragon fruitExpand
Effects of drying temperature on the chemical and physical properties of Musa acuminata Colla (AAA Group) leaves.
Abstract Typically, banana trees are cut once the fruit has been harvested; however, other parts of the banana tree, particularly the leaves, might have other potential uses. Nevertheless, fewExpand
Comparison of subcritical CO2 and ultrasound-assisted aqueous methods with the conventional solvent method in the extraction of avocado oil
Abstract Avocado (Persiana americana Mill) belongs to the Lauraceae family. High level of lipids in the avocado pulp can be served as an important raw material for edible oil extraction. In theExpand
Coating and Encapsulation of Nanoparticles using Supercritical Antisolvent
A modified Supercritical Anti Solvent (SAS) apparatus was fabricated for use in the production of nanoparticles using carbon dioxide as the supercritical fluid (SCF). Expand
