dc.description.abstract Drying is an industrial process widely used to extend the shelf life of products. Heat pump drying technology gives final dried products with better quality without the main concerns of the conventional dryers such as environmental challenges and large energy losses that lead to higher operational costs. Eight tests involving two different types of protein mixtures were carried out at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. The study covered the influence of parameters like mixture composition, boiling treatment, mixture phase, particle size and temperature or relative humidity on the quality and final properties of the dried products. Obtaining the drying kinetics it was done to evaluate the best conditions for a better water removal from the product. The content of carbohydrate improved the drying rates thus allow to make a lower cost product.
