Abstract

Temperature and Feed Rate Effects Properties of Spray Dried Hibiscus sabdariffa Powder

The present study aims to determine the effects of inlet air temperature and feed rate on the main powder properties during spray drying of roselle extract. A pilot-scale spray dryer was employed for the spray drying process. Parameters analyzed were yield, moisture, color and anthocyanin content. A factorial design with three inlet air temperatures (150, 160 and 170°C) and three feed rate levels (280, 350 and 420 ml/h) were investigated. There was significant (p<0.05) effect of inlet air temperature and feed rate on yield, color and moisture content while no remarkable changes in anthocyanin content was observed. Increase in feed rate substantially reduced (p<0.05) production of roselle powder. Furthermore, the amount powder was higher with elevated feed rate but lesser with increasing inlet temperature.
