Influence of Pre-treatments on Quality of Dehydrated Ripe Banana ( Musa acuminata cv . Embul )

  title={Influence of Pre-treatments on Quality of Dehydrated Ripe Banana ( Musa acuminata cv . Embul )},
  author={T. Mahendran and K. Prasannath},
A study was undertaken to examine the influence of different pre-treatments on drying rate and quality of ripe banana. The effects of pretreatments such as blanching, chilling, freezing and combination treatments on the quality of bananas (Musa acuminata cv. Embul) were investigated. The banana fruits were dehydrated at 40oC in a heat pump dehumidifier dryer at the air velocity of 3.0 m/s until the final moisture content of approximately 20% of dry weight basis was achieved. The drying rates of… CONTINUE READING
