Equilibrium moisture content (EMC) and effective moisture diffusion (Deff ) were experimentally determined for cooked rice during drying and were compared with the models described in the literature. Arrhenius-type of equation has been developed to define the effect of temperature on diffusion coefficient (Deff ). A two-parameter-combined equation was developed to describe the Deff in terms of moisture and temperature as the drying progressed. Shrinkage effect was also considered in transforming these Deff values to Dreference values. The equation developed in this study can be used to predict the Deff of cooked rice at given conditions.
