- ... The study evaluated the effects of convective hot air drying temperatures (40, 50, 60 and 70 °C) with different pre-treatments (Potassium metabisulphite (KMS) and KMS + Citric acid) on drying as well as rehydration kinetics, color, texture and calcium oxalate content of elephant foot yam (EFY) cubes. Moisture diffusivity (6.69 × 10−8-3.41 × 10−7 m2/s) and activation energy (25.18–32.46 kJ/mol) inc ...
