The main purpose of this project is to meet new consumption needs of the modern society by developing a food product that aggregates nutritional quality, easy preparation and consumption and health benefits. This research proposal aims at studying the drying process of a protein peptide that has good nutritional characteristics along with other food components. Drying will be performed in a spouted bed and spray dryer to obtain a new food product powder. Different protein compositions, as well as various operational conditions will be tested in the two dryers, spouted bed and spray, and the final product will be characterized physico-chemically and nutritionally (size distribution, cohesiveness, repose angle, dispersion in liquid, solubility, color, morphology, hygroscopic characteristics, thermal degradation, pH, moisture content, reducing and total sugars, proteins, fibers, lipids, B-carothen, anthocyanins, total antioxidant activity and soluble solids), in order to find the less aggressive process to the nutritional properties and the most efficient.
