The typical duration for conventional freeze drying is in the range of 20-60h depending on the type and quantity of vegetable or fruits to be dried In the end drying stages the product temperature rises above 0C because when only little moisture is left inside the product the boiling point looses its influence on the product temperature

review on trends in microwave-related drying of fruits and vegetables indicating the advantages of combining conventional drying methods with microwave heating The review also clearly indicates that combination of drying methods leads to better drying processes than using microwave or conventional drying methods alone

Despite this great production potential the processing of fruits and vegetables is low and is mainly limited to extraction of juice drying bottling and labeling Most fruits and vegetables can be produced organically in Uganda but maximum benefits and guaranteed results can be realized if modest investments are put into the enterprise

Jan 24 2018Introduction Seasonality is one of the key factors which determine the need for fruit processing primarily for juices beverages and concentrates but also for solids and frozen or dried products [] The popularity of strawberries is due to their sensory qualities as well as low caloric value the content of easily digestible sugars organic acids minerals and also vitamins

This paper demonstrates the weakness of common drying methods applied for fruits and vegetables and the possible ways to improve the quality using different drying techniques or their combination with an emphasis on the microwave energy Particular attention has been drawn to the combined drying with the assistance of vacuum-microwaves

Jul 14 2016Generally dried fruits prepared with high temperature drying methods such as sun oven and hot air drying have a harder and denser texture in some cases they can be chewy and tough to bite That's because the evaporation of moisture from the fruit under these conditions collapse the cellular structures and make the fruit more leathery

Microwave related drying (MW-hot air MW-vacuum MW-freeze MW-osmotic) combination drying is a rapid dehydration technique that can be applied to specific foods particularly to fruits and vegetables Increasing concerns about product quality and production costs have motivated the research to investigate and the industry to adopt combination drying technologies
