Abstract

The effect of drying methods on drying characteristic, energy consumption and color has been investigated for nectarine in this study. Sun, hot air, microwave and infrared drying techniques were applied as drying methods. The drying temperature was determined as 50 degrees C for hot air drying of nectarine, as the applied powers were 90W and 83W for microwave and infrared dryings, respectively.
