Box-Behnken Design was used with water loss (WL, %), solid gain (SG, %), and weight reduction (WR, %) as responses. The models obtained for all the responses were significant (<em>P</em>≤0.05) without a significant lack of fit. The optimum conditions were temperature (45°C), immersion time (109.336min), concentration of sucrose solution (40⁰Brix) in order to obtain WL of &nbsp;(29.331g/100g initial sample), SG of (4.265g/100g initial sample) and WR of &nbsp;25.224 g/100g initial sample, respectively.</p> Khin Swe Oo, Thet Hnin Oo Copyright (c) 2019 EPH - International Journal of Science And Engineering (ISSN: 2454 - 2016) http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://ephjournal.com/index.php/se/article/view/1258 Tue, 30 Apr 2019 08:47:57 +0000
