|Abstract: ||Fodder palm, a great source of nutrients for human and animals, grows even in arid climates. Pulsed vac-
uum osmotic dehydration is an efficient process for obtaining semidehydrated food. It was used to slice
cladodes of fodder palm. The independent variables used were temperature (30–50 °C), pulsed vacuum
pressure (50–150 mbar) and NaCl concentration (5–15 g per 100 g solution). The response variables were
water activity (a w ), moisture content (X), colour parameters, water loss (WL), solid gain (SG) and weight
reduction (WR). The pulsed vacuum osmotic dehydration process was optimised for minimum values of
a w , X and SG, and maximum values of chroma. The experimental data obtained with the optimum condi-
tion (100 mbar; 10 gNaCl per 100 g solution, 44 °C) were near the estimated ones. For example, WL, a w
and ΔE, and their error were 8.15 g per 100 g, 11%; 0.985, 0.3% and 6.15, 15.2%, respectively.|
