Abstract:

Cauliflower is one of several vegetables in the species Brassica oleracea in the genus Brassica, which is in the family Brassicaceae. The present investigation were carried out to determine the drying kinetics (Moisture content wb% & db%, dehydration ratio, average drying rate, etc.) of cauliflower under cabinet tray drying (60 0C). Moisture content (wb %) of samples ranges from 94.53 to 09.90 and moisture content (db %) ranges from 1729.49 to 10.99 at 60 ºC of tray drying temperature. Drying rate and dehydration ratio were ranged from 3.38 to 0.07 and 1.38 to 1.07 respectively.


Keywords: cauliflower, tray drying, drying rate, moisture content
