Experimental and modeling methodologies for the analysis of water adsorption in food products. A review

  title={Experimental and modeling methodologies for the analysis of water adsorption in food products. A review},
  author={Iv'an David Buitrago-Torres and J. Torres-Osorio and Elisabeth Restrepo‐Parra},
The determination of the isothermal adsorption curves represents a mechanism that allows obtaining information on the process of adsorption of water in organic and inorganic materials. In addition, it is a measure to be considered when characterizing the physicochemical and structural properties of the materials. We want to present an approach to the state of knowledge about the methods to characterize seeds and materials associated with food products physically and structurally, and to relate… Expand
