Abstract: Osmotic dehydrated mango slices can be prepared from firm and ripe mango fruits after peeling and cutting of fruits into slices (2 cm thick) and dipping in a solution [sugar (600B) + KMS(0. 05%) + citric acid (0.1%)] for 6 h at 60°C. During osmosis, water loss and solid gain increased with increase in sugar concentrations (40 -70o B) and temperature of solution (40-70oC). Optimum solid gain (12.3%), water loss (31.8%), mass reduction (19.4%) and sensory attributes in slices were recorded in 60°B sugar solution at 60°C. Osmotic drying considerably increased sugar content and reduced acidity without any significant change in colour, texture and original flavour of slices. Product was acceptable up to 6 months when it was stored in 200 g high density polyethylene (HDPE) bags at ambient temperature.
