Abstract:

The influence of different drying methods on biochemical properties and visual characters of African marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cultivar “Seracole”, was carried out. The petals of marigold flowers were dried by five different methods viz. sun drying, shade drying, oven drying, cabinet drying and infrared drying. The biochemical constituents were analyzed on total chlorophyll (mg.g-1f.w), lycopene (mg/100g sample) and total phenols (mg of GAE/g). Infrared dried petals exhibit a high yield of total chlorophyll (T11; 0.120 mg.g-1 f.w) and lycopene (T10; 55.92 mg/100g sample) followed by sun drying (T0; 0.060 mg.g-1 f.w and T0; 41.17 mg/100g sample respectively). Highest content of total phenol was found in cabinet drying (T6; 56.33 mg of GAE/g), whereas minimum total phenol were found in Sun drying (T0; 44.29 mg of GAE/g). There was found to be significant increase in overall infrared dried samples retained better biochemical properties than other drying methods.
