The osmotic dehydration of carrot slices was carried out by two methods: at atmospheric pressure and under pulsed microwave vacuum conditions. In the first part, 20 experiments were conducted using a central composite design (CCD) with sucrose concentration (23–57% w/w), solution temperature (29–71°C), and time of osmosis (6–74 min). The slice thickness of 3.5 mm and sample-to-solution ratio of 1:10 (w/w) was kept constant throughout all experiments. Numerical optimization was done for higher… CONTINUE READING
