Preparation and Evaluation of Spray Dried Honey Powder
The present study on production of honey powder using spray drying technology was carried out and the selected physico-chemical properties of spray dried honey powder was estimated at different inlet air temperatures of 180, 190 and 200 °C and tricalcium phosphate concentrations of 1.25, 1.50 and 1.75% were chosen as independent variables to produce the spray dried honey powder. The values with respect to the fructose, glucose, total solids, water activity and hygroscopicity were 18.20, 20.18, 96.72, 0.10 and 10.92 per cent, respectively.
