|Abstract: ||Thin-layer drying of cap and stem of mushroom was studied at temperatures of 40, 50 and 60°C.
Drying took place in the falling rate period, and the drying behaviour was adequately described
by the Page’s equation. The activation energy values of cap and stem were determined to be
26.96 and 26.85 kJ/mol, respectively. The computed values of frequency factor ko for cap and
stem were 4174 and 6247 h–1, respectively. The higher ko value for stem implied lower resistance
to diffusion of moisture and therefore resulted in less drying time for stem at similar moisture
