A Thermomechanical Preprocessing For Pectin Extraction From Orange Peel . Optimisation by Response Surface Methodology

The instantaneous controlled pressure drop process (or D.I.C process: “Détente Instantanée Contrôlée”) was used as pre-treatment prior to pectin acid extraction from orange peel. This process involves subjecting the orange peel for a short time to steam pressure varying from 100 to 700 kPa, followed by an instantaneous decompression to vacuum at 5 kPa… CONTINUE READING
