|Title:||Dehydration of Ginger Slices|
|Abstract:||The results of kinetic study conducted on the dehydration of ginger slices using a tray drier at 55-60°C are reported. It is also revealed that the dehydration of ginger occurs in the falling rate period. The sorption isotherm and rehydration studies conducted on the dried product are also reported. The dried ginger has shown a water activity of 0.58 and the maximum rehydration is obtained after 60 min. The overall acceptability is found to be very good (up to 6 months) for the dehydrated ginger slices packed in 300 gauge HDPE and stored at ambient temperatures.|
