Bananas are, after coffee, Colombia's most important agricultural product. Post-harvest losses and the emergence of new markets for processed products; make it convenient to the introduction of technologies to its most efficient use. In this paper, banana pulp (Musa paradisiaca L.) is characterized and the drying variables are determined to obtain dried pulp sheet. To achieve this, equipment for testing static drying is designed and built, and banana pulp is characterized by determining… 
Kinetic Models for Drying Techniques—Food Materials
Drying operations can help in reducing the moisture content of food materials for avoidance of microbial growth and deterioration, for shelf life elongation, to minimize packaging and improving
