Abstract: The present investigation was carried out on effect of pre-treatments on quality of mango peel powder. the investigation was laid out using completely randomized design with factorial concept for retention of physico-chemical and sensory quality using sixteen treatment combinations of potassium meta-bisulphite (0ppm, 500ppm, 1000ppm and 1500ppm) and ascorbic acid (0ppm, 100ppm, 200ppm and 300ppm). After pre-treatments, the samples of peel were blanched at 85±5ºC for 5 minutes, then drained and dried at 60ºC till final moisture content of 8%. Mango peel powder which was dehydrated by giving pre-treatment to peel with the combination of 1000 ppm KMS and 200 ppm ascorbic acid (A3K3) found superior based on drying kinetics, nutritional as well as sensory quality and thus pusses great potential for utilization of processing waste.
