Modeling of Mass Transfer Parameters of Osmosised Red Bell Pepper

  title={Modeling of Mass Transfer Parameters of Osmosised Red Bell Pepper},
  author={Odewole and Sunmonu and Aduba},
The modeling of mass transfer parameters in terms of water loss and solid gain of osmosised red bell pepper was done. The osmotic dehydration factors considered were osmotic process duration (30 min, 60 min, 90 min and 120 min), osmotic solution concentration (5% (w/w), 10% (w/w), 15% (w/w) and 20% (w/w)) and osmotic solution temperature (30˚C, 40˚C, 50˚C and 60˚C). A 4 X 4 X 4 factorial experiment in a randomized complete block design was used with three replicates and the total runs were 192…

Studies on the Osmotic Dehydration and Rehydration Characteristics of Pineapple Slices
The study investigated the influence of two osmotic conditions (50°Brix sugar and 47:3% w/w sugar/salt solutions) on osmotic dehydration (water loss, solid gain, electrical conductivity and pH of the
Mass transfer modelling of the osmotic dehydration of some fruits
An empirical model was developed to predict the water loss and solid gain during osmotic dehydration of apple, banana and kiwi fruit. The model is based on a first-order kinetic equation, in which
Osmotic dehydrations of carrot cubes in sodium chloride salt solutions at different solution concentrations, temperatures and process durations were analyzed for water loss and solute gain. The
