Osmo-dehydrated cashew apples could be developed by osmotic treatment of 10 mm thick slices of blanched cashew apples in 60° brix honey at 50° C for 24hours followed by drying at 50° C till 15-20% moisture. The product could be stored for six months in vacuum pack with nitrogen in laminated pouch without affecting major chemical quality parameters.
