Characteristics of anchovies

Anchovies have a body length of 40-70 mm, fresh, bright color, whole, natural fishy smell. Fresh fish after catching is washed, treated with fishy smell, boiled with salt before being dried. This process is designed by each establishment owner, along with its own secrets such as marinating and marinating techniques. The moisture content in the raw fish is about 75%.

Process of drying dried anchovies

The drying process of dried anchovies is usually divided into three stages:

Anchovy heating stage

Because the anchovies are relatively thin, the heating process happens quickly, about 15-25 minutes. During this process, the temperature is steadily increased but not discharged. It is also known as the incubation period. At this stage, the temperature is set to 50 degrees Celsius. Drying time is 15-25 minutes. Note that the heat should not be set too high, otherwise the fish will be steamed.
After this period, all anchovies put into the dryer are heated to a level just enough for moisture to evaporate off the surface of the fish.

Drying stage of dried anchovies

At this stage, people let moisture and hot air escape. Wind speed and temperature were maintained constant during the drying process of dried anchovies. The wind direction is changed periodically according to the preset cycle.

During this stage, the moisture on the surface is heated and evaporated to the environment, hot air convection has the effect of providing additional heat and bringing moisture out.

The moisture layer is deep inside thanks to the diffusion process, will come to the surface and continue to be evaporated until the anchovies are dried.
