Title: Vacuum Frying: An Alternative to Obtain High-Quality Dried Products
UPV Unit: Universitat Politècnica de València. Departamento de Tecnología de Alimentos - Departament de Tecnologia d'Aliments
Issued date:
Vacuum frying is an alternative way to improve the quality of the fried food and could reduce the final oil uptake in the product. The product is heated at low pressure thus decreasing the boiling points of the frying oil ...[+]
