Headline: Dry fruits in the ion wind
After the summer harvest, fruits are sold seasonally as dried fruit. If fruits or vegetables are dried with heat, however, nutrients can be destroyed and aromas lost. That is why the non-thermal drying of food – i.e. without heating – is particularly popular in industry. Among other things, fans are used here. A new drying process developed at Empa using ion wind now promises more energy-efficient, faster and even gentler drying of food.
