Osmotic dehydration technique for fruits preservation-A review

  title={Osmotic dehydration technique for fruits preservation-A review},
  author={Moazzam Rafiq Khan},
Fruits are important sources of vitamin and minerals. They are got rotten before the final consumption due to lack of preservation and storage facilities. Osmotic dehydration is an operation used for the partial removal of water from plant tissues by immersion in an osmotic solution. This is a useful technique to extend the shelf life and decrease the energy cost. It also helps to improve the sensorial, nutritional and organoleptic properties of foods. Along with freezing and deep fat frying… CONTINUE READING
