Drying pumpkin slices (Cucurbita moschata), blanched or not as well as oil sprayed, or covered by edible coating and seasoned sauces will be investigated with an aim to obtain a dry-pumpkin product ready to eat. The effects of blanching, the edible coatings addition and drying temperatures, on the process efficiency and on physic-chemical and sensory properties will be evaluated with a view to improve the quality of the final product.
