Title: DRYING METHOD AND DRYING DEVICE OF INSTANT NOODLES
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a method of drying instant non-fry noodles for obtaining non-fry instant noodles which do not stick to each other, separate easily, and have excellent reconstitution properties. The non-fry instant noodle drying process includes a step for injecting gelatinized noodles into a drying retainer and drying the noodles by blowing a high-speed air stream from above the retainer onto the noodle mass. Further, in said drying step, the retainer is formed such that the transition portion from the bottom surface to the lateral surface (side wall portion) is a curved surface with a radius of curvature of 5-15mm, and preferably, the high-speed air stream is blown such that the air speed to which the noodles are exposed is greater than or equal to 50m/s.
