Abstract: The drying behavior of aonla shreds were analyzed using the experimental data of moisture of product at different temperatures viz. 60ºC, 70ºC and 80ºC under cabinet dryer, hot air oven and osmo-air drying. It was found that the drying time of the blanched+ sulphiting aonla shreds samples were less than the controlled and blanched aonla shreds sample at 60ºC, 70ºC and 80ºC respectively. Osmosis as a pretreatment prior to convective air drying was able to decrease drying time. The blanching + sulphiting aonla shred samples with osmotic pre-treatment were more appreciable in comparison to controlled and blanched aonla shred under cabinet tray dryer and hot air oven dryer on the basis of moisture content and drying rate.
