|Abstract:||The mass transfer during osmotic dehydration of grapes, to produce quality raisins, is investigated. The effect of some osmotic solutions (sucrose and honey) on water loss and solid gain is evaluated. It is found that the rate of moisture loss in the fruit varies with both the osmotic agents as well as their concentrations in the soak solutions at ambient temperature. The sensory scores indicate that the honey-treated samples have better flavour while sugar-treated ones have better colour (appearance) and overall acceptability.|
