Jaboticaba (Plinia cauliflora) is a Brazilian fruit with a high content of anthocyanins compounds. Peel corresponds to 30 % of the fruit weight and it is considerated a residue since just the pulp is used. The aim of this work was to analyze the convective drying process of the jaboticaba peels. Moisture content of dried peels showed a range of 7.17 to 13.26 (% w.b.). The results also reported that jaboticaba peels have high anthocyanins content (fresh: 1162.99 ± 41.35 mg/100g d.b) and it was possible to maintain these compounds even after the drying process (1052 to 1270 mg/100g d.b).

Keywords: jaboticaba; peel; drying; residue; anthocyanins.
