Enoki mushroom drying process
The moisture content of fresh enoki mushroom is about 90%, and the moisture content after drying is 13%. The entire drying process is about 8 hours, and the temperature is about 50°C-65°C (adjustable), meanwhile, the temperature, humidity, and air flow should be uniform.
The entire drying process of enoki mushroom can be roughly divided into two stages:
In the first stage, the temperature of the drying room is raised to 30°C-40°C, and the air volume is increased, and the drying time is about 3 hours. The purpose of this stage is mainly to dry out the moisture of the enoki mushroom and suck it away.
In the second stage, the temperature of the drying room reaches 50 ℃–60 ℃. Dehumidification by a dehumidification system is the main process, and this process will continue for about 5 hours, until the enoki mushroom is dried to the targeted moisture content.
