Abstract
Around 155 million tons of food products are produced in India but suffers from wastage losses due toincapable storage technologies. In India, around 60-80% of farmers use sun drying method which leads to loss of needful minerals or vitamins for the human body and hence is inappropriate. To overcome the grain losses due to storing and harvesting a food drying system can be made for the preservation of crops. This paper reviews various geothermal food drying systems used in the various food industry as well as in research and development sectors for reducing food loss with several engineering storage methods. In this paper three types of food drying processes are described namely standalone geothermal food dryer, geothermal dehydrator and hybrid solar- geothermal food dryer. This paper review the working principal and features of the food dryers, which are driven by the renewable energies like solar and geothermal.
