- ... Spray drying was evaluated as a dehydrating method to preserve the postharvest biocontrol agent Candidasake CPA-1. The effect of drying temperature, carrier, growth and rehydrating medium on the survival of the yeast was studied. Outlet temperature had more influence on the death of the cells than inlet temperature, and survival decreased with increasing temperature. Spray drying at an inlet tempe ...
