Abstract: The objective of the present investigation was to study the effect of temperature (45–55 °C), immersion time (2 and 3 h), and sucrose (45–55% w/v) concentrations on the water loss (WL), solid gain (SG), and Rehydration ratio (RR) of osmotic dehydrated carrot slices. Moreover, the sensory attributes such as colour, taste, appearance, flavour and overall acceptability for both dehydrated and rehydrated carrot slices was also observed. All the dependent variables were significantly affected by the independent variables. In the present investigation, the optimum condition for dehydrated carrot slices was found to be as 55% w/v at 55 °C for 2 h.
