The drying performance of grain corn was investigated using a pilot scale flat-bed dryer. The shelled grain corn (variety Dupont 30T60 , P4311 and P4546) were selected and the study was carried out at MARDI Pendang, Kedah. Effect of various temperature (50°C, 60°C and 70°C) on the drying time and moisture reduction profile were investigated. The in...

The native sago starch is stored inside the trunk pith. In order to extract the starch, the mechanical method is required to break the pith fibre producing grated sago. The more refined the grated sago, the more sago starch can be dissolved in water during the extraction process. A comparative study on the capabilities of existed and potential grat...
