Abstract Frequent consumption of fruits can prevent nutrient deficiencies and promote health. However, the perishability and unaffordability of fruits had led to very low levels of fruit consumption in low‐ and middle‐income countries (LMICs). The objective of this study was to evaluate the retention of nutrients and bioactive compounds of papaya fruit (Carica papaya L) with/without ascorbic acid pretreatment and drying under different techniques, to then estimate the vitamin A intakes for…

Catalase Activity in Hot-Air Dried Mango as an Indicator of Heat Exposure for Rapid Detection of Heat Stress

The growing market for dried fruits requires more attention to quality parameters. Mango and other tropical fruits are commonly dried at temperatures ranging from 40 °C to 80 °C. Convincing evidence

Effect of Hot-Air Convective Drying on Activity Retention of Amylase and Invertase in Dried Mango of Varieties Sindri, SB Chaunsa, and Tommy Atkins

Recently, fruit-drying industries are showing great interest in producing dry fruits that preserve a high enzyme content. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the effect of hot-air convective

Complementary feeding and food-group level inequality among Ethiopian children 6-23 months of age (2011-2019).

Multisectoral efforts that span from diversifying the food supply, regulating the marketing of unhealthy foods, and promoting minimal processing of perishables are needed to equitably improve the diet quality of children in Ethiopia.

Effect of Solar Drying on Physico-chemical and Antioxidant Properties of Mango, Banana and Papaya

Fruits play an important role in human nutrition, but due to their high perishable nature they cannot be stored for longer period. As drying is the ancient method of preservation, therefore, solar

Effects of Drying on Total Polyphenols Contents and Antioxidant Properties of Carica Papaya Leaves.

Freeze dried sample retained the most total polyphenol contents and showed the highest antioxidant activities in both ABTS and DPPH antioxidant assays.

Effect of dehydration methods on retention of carotenoids, tocopherols, ascorbic acid and antioxidant activity in Moringa oleifera leaves and preparation of a RTE product

Fresh leaves of M. oleifera plants were analysed for nutritionally important phytoconstituents and feasible commercially used dehydration method were evaluated to preserve these in dehydrated leaves and suitable methods of drying that could be useful for processed food formulation were found.

Freeze-Drying Characteristics of Tropical Fruits

ABSTRACT The objective of this work was to experimentally determine physical properties such as apparent densities, real densities, and porosity of freeze-dried tropical fruits pulps such as
