The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of osmotic dehydration of guava slice. The present investigation entitled “Studies on different treatments on osmotic dehydrated Allahabad safeda guava slice (Psidium guajava)” was carried out in the Post Harvest Laboratory of Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad in 2013. The design of the experiment was Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 10 treatments and 3 replications and stored for 90 days under ambient temperature. The variety of guava was Allahabad safeda. The experimental result was found significant and it may be concluded that T5 (Dipping of blanched Guava slices in 600 Brix glucose for 12 hours followed by vacuum dehydration) gave the best result in total soluble solids (23.530Brix), acidity (0.34%), non-reducing sugar (5.82%) and also excellent in organoleptic quality.

Key words: Guava, Osmotic Dehydration, Blanching, Slice.
