A study was conducted using SD-06 Laboratory Scale Spray Dryer to produce spray-dried pineapple powder using 4 different maltodextrin concentration (0%, 10%, 15% and 20%) as the carrier agent and three different inlet temperatures (1600C, 1700C and 1800C). The spray-dried pineapple powders were analyzed for moisture content, solubility and dissolution. Results demonstrated that as inlet temperature increased, the moisture content decreased. However, as the inlet temperature increased, the solubility and dissolution increased. With the addition of maltodextrin grade 10, the optimum conditions have been obtained are 20% maltodextrin concentration and inlet temperature 1800C.
