Influences of Juice Extraction and Drying Methods on the Chemical Analysis of Lemon Peels

Authors: Azza A. Abou-Arab, Marwa H. Mahmoud, Ferial M. Abu-Salem


This study aimed to determine the influence of some different juice extraction methods (screw type hand operated juice extractor and pressed squeeze juice extractor) as well as drying methods (microwave, solar and oven drying) on the chemical properties of lemon peels. It could be concluded that extraction of juice by screw type and drying of peel using the microwave drying method were the best preparative processing steps methods for lemon peel utilization as food additives.

Keywords: Lemon peel, extraction of juice methods, chemical analysis.
