Different forms for drying
Freeze drying, used for evaporating water from the processed mushrooms. The limitation is the high energy costs. Therefore it used for high-value products like mushrooms only. The limitation is high energy costs.
Vacuum drying, products vacuumed at low-temperature. Widely practiced for product quality and economics. The products dried under vacuum at low-temperature and widely practiced for product quality and economics.

Hot air is air circulation over the product. Evaporation is controlled by temperature heating.
Lastly, Sun-drying is a traditional system for the product. It takes time and the risk of product deterioration.
