Abstract: This paper provides a capsule overview of recent experimental studies dealing with the drying of a large assortment of tropical and subtropical fruits, also called "exotic" fruits. The term exotic includes a number of tropical fruits that are not yet commonly found in global markets but do have the potential to do so in view of their appearance, taste, and textural and nutritional quality parameters. As the consumer is seeking diverse tastes and flavors without compromising on quality, it is logical to expect the market for dried exotic fruits to increase over the next decade. This review covers diverse drying techniques, drying kinetics, and key quality parameters of dried fruits. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media,LLC.
