Optimization of low-cost drying methods and kinetics of degradation of gamma-linolenic acid in spirulina during accelerated storage test

Three relatively inexpensive drying methods were optimized to produce dried Spirulina of optimum quality at minimum cost. Quality was evaluated in terms of the product's oxidative stability. Oxidative stability of the samples during pretreatment and drying was measured using the thiobarbituric...
