Optimization of Osmo- Dehydration Process of Honey-Ginger Candy by using Response Surface Methodology

2020 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
This report is to investigate the effects of process variables on the solid gain, water loss using the Response surface methodology (RSM). The ginger was Osmo-dehydrated using process variables such has blanching time, the temperature for an osmotic solution, immersion, & convective drying temperature .response variables tested were solid gain and water loss. The blanching is done to inactivate the enzyme and to increase permeability in ginger candy. The optimum Osmo-convective process
