Title : Impact of slice size on kinetic behavior and drying time of fresh-cut apple (Malus domestica)

Abstract :

Drying is a common method for preserving apples. The effect of slice size on the drying rate and drying time of apples (Malus Domestica) was observed. Experiments were performed with slice sizes of 2,4,6 cm. The drying characteristics were examined by drying at 50 ° C for 720 minutes using a temperature cabinet dryer. During the critical drying time, total mass, drying rate, moisture content and moisture ratio were monitored. Using SPSS software, the effect of size on drying time was clarified. The results showed that the drying time decreased with slice size.
