Abstract

In this study, shiitake mushrooms were dried by hot air, vacuum and freeze drying methods and theire physical properties were compared. Since the pore size affects the amount of absorption, the characteristics of water sorption were investigated at various humidities and temperatures. Results showed that the freeze dried product had the greatest pore area and the highest absorption capacity. However, all the dried samples showed similar quality. The browning degrees were severely changed with increased relative humidities and temperatures. Among these drying methods, the freeze drying gave the greatest change in browning degree. The GAB monolayer moisture contents of the dried shiitake mushroom were $5.3{\sim}7.7%$. The prediction model was also provided using parameters such as relative humidity, temperature and pore area.
