In this context, this study aimed to produce red mombin pulp powder in spouted bed dryer, analyze it regarding physical and chemical parameters and evaluate its hygroscopic behavior at the temperatures of 20, 30 and 40 [degrees]C, adjusting the models of GAB, Oswin and Peleg to the experimental data.
To obtain the images, red mombin powder was photographed with magnifications of 350x, 1400x, 2100x and 3500x.
1, 2 and 3, were fitted to the experimental data of water adsorption isotherms of red mombin powders through nonlinear regression, by the Quasi-Newton method, using the program Statistica 7.
Table 1 shows the results of physical and chemical characteristics of red mombin powder produced in spouted bed dryer.
2011), red mombin pulp powder was classified as of intermediate flowability for showing values of Hausner ratio and Carr index of 1.
Despite the possibility of destruction of phenolic compounds by the action of temperature, the red mombin pulp powder showed high content of this constituent, being also higher than that reported by Todisco et al.
The present study focuses on the search for and inventory of parasitoids that attack Anastrepha species, as well as determination of the relationships between fruit flies, host plants, and parasitoids in the fruit growing region of southern Yucatan, which mainly consists of mixed orchards of citrus, mango, sapodilla, guava, and red mombin.
Jun to Sep 2000; Febr, April to Jun 2001); and red mombin, Spondias purpurea L.
8 kg) from 9 host species (including 4 mango varieties and 3 red mombin varieties) were examined and found to be infested by 5 Anastrepha species.
