One major problem with frozen fruits is a loss of texture. Therefore this study investigated the effects of the freezing process on the freezing profiles, texture, and drip loss of apple, mango, cantaloupe, and pineapple fruit samples. All frozenthawed fruits varied in these three properties because of diversity in the fresh fruits. Mango had the highest total soluble solids content and the lowest freezing point, whereas pineapple showed the highest freezing rate. The highest firmness and… Expand

Dehydrofreezing of Apple Fruits: Freezing Profiles, Freezing Characteristics, and Texture Variation
The present study deals with the dehydrofreezing of apples. Fresh samples (700 % db) and samples dehydrated up to different water contents (200, 100, and 30 % db) were frozen at high practicalExpand
Effect of Freezing and Thawing on the Quality of Durian (Durio zibethinus Murray) Pulp
The effect of freezing, and iced and hot water thawing on the quality of durian pulp was investigated. Mature durian pulp was removed with seeds, vacuum-packed, and frozen at -20°C. Thawing in icedExpand
Impact of initial moisture content levels, freezing rate and instant controlled pressure drop treatment (DIC) on dehydrofreezing process and quality attributes of quince fruits
Abstract Dehydrofreezing process involves water partial removal before freezing. This treatment has been proposed in order to reduce the negative impacts of conventional or even accelerated freezing,Expand
Potentiality of freeze–thaw treatment to produce soft textured aonla (Emblica officinalis) candies
It was found that freeze–thaw treatment significantly reduced the firmness of segments and produced soft textured candies. Expand
Effect of freezing with oscillating magnetic fields on the physical and sensorial characteristics of mango (Mangifera indica L. cv. ‘Kent’)
Freezing using oscillating magnetic fields (OMF), was developed and is marketed to overcome drawbacks that normally occur in conventional freezing, which affect firmness, colour, taste, and drip lossExpand
Finite Element Method for Freezing and Thawing Industrial Food Processes
