In this study, foaming condition of roselle was optimized using response surface methodology (RSM) and the effect of drying characteristic was investigated. Roselle extract was foamed by addition of 1-5% w/w foaming agents (ovalbumin). The foaming stabilizer, glycerol mono stearate (0-1% w/w) was used to remain mechanic and thermodynamic stability of foam. As the response foam density and drainage volume was determined. The optimum foam variable was then dried at various drying temperatures (50-70°C). The moisture content was observed by gravimetry every 10 minutes for 90 minutes. Result showed that optimum formulation was 3.31% egg albumin and 1% GMS. The constant rate of the foam mat drying (temperature 50°C) was 3 times higher than non foam mat drying. Higher drying temperature can speed up the driving force but lead to color degradation.
