What is it about?
Using an adequate mathematical model, it is possible to predict data of moisture and radius of alginate particles at a drying procedure. Thus, it is possible to calculate in how much minutes the particles will reach that size/moisture for a certain temperature. The model was validated with experiments, agreeing with the predicted data.

Why is it important?
The importance of this work relies on the fact that we are proposing a simple model capable of calculate changes in moisture and size at the same time. It is possible to use this modelling to calculate at which temperature/time an alginate sphere is going to reach certain amount of moisture and size.
