Abstract

In India there is vast scope of dehydration of potato slices through solar drying. In the present study effort have been made to assess the quality of potato chip using different drying methods and pretreatments. The quality of the chips prepared through the different pretreatments and from drying methods was evaluated using standard test methods. It was found that chips prepared with potassium metabisulphite treatment by indirect mode solar dryer have maximum score i.e. 8.0 and the chips prepared with calcium chloride treatment dried in wiremesh sun dryer have minimum score i.e. 5.3.
