Masud Alam, Muhammad Zakaria Hossain, Nazrul Islam


In this research, different reconstitutional properties of summer onion were studied. During rehydration quality test for both samples mechanical and solar dried it was observed that the rehydration ratio RR was higher for mechanical dried onion than that of solar dried counterparts and RR was also higher for blanched sample rather than unblanched sample for both the drying method.
