Abstract:

In this study the different methods of drying methods were compared for drying of blanched fenugreek leaves. The drying methods were used as tray drying 40, 50, 60ºC, fluidized bed drying 40, 50, 60ºC, shade drying and open sun drying. Tray drying at 60°C took minimum time 4 h, followed by fluidized bed drying at 60°C took 6 h, open sun dying took 8 h followed by shade drying was 12 h in blanched treatment sample. There was non-significant difference in overall acceptability organoleptic score of dehydrated sample of fenugreek leaves by different methods while there was an effect of storage time. The maximum score was obtained in case of tray-dried sample at 60°C. Tray drying is independent of weather conditions for drying, quality of tray-dried product is good, but tray drying is costly.
