“The preservation of green leafy vegetables was very important. The leaves of Moringa oleifera have various uses in human life. Moringa oleifera leaves can be used in various foods like soup, sauces and it also used for medicine preparation. In present investigation the efforts have been made to prepare powder of Moringa oleifera by applying drying technique viz. Sun drying, Shadow drying, Cabinet drying and Oven drying. The drying was done at 60°C to minimize the drying losses. The results obtained from cabinet dried sample were better than other and it had highest nutrient retention followed by shadow, sun drying and oven dried sample. The rehydration ratio calculated at 55°C, 65°C, 75°C temperature for 60, 45, 30 minutes respectively. The rehydration ratio of cabinet dried sample was more than other samples. The study revealed that the cabinet tray drying method was observed suitable for dehydration of drumstick leaves.”
