Effect of drying conditions and of blanching on drying kinetics and color of mint (Mentha spicata Huds.) and basil (Ocimum basilicum)

Drying ' 92 Proceedings of the 8th International Drying Symposium IDS ' 92, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, August 2-5-1992: 1360-1369
Effect of drying conditions and of blanching on drying kinetics and color of mint (Mentha spicata Huds.) and basil (Ocimum basilicum)
The work reported examines the effect of drying conditions on drying kinetics of mint (Mentha spicata Huds.) and basil (Ocimum basilicum). Several parameters were studied, including drying air temp., humidity, velocity and whether or not the leaves were blanched before treatment. The results confirmed, with good reproducibility, that temp. is the main factor in controlling the rate of drying, and that when blanching is limited to 15 s, drying times were strongly reduced.
