In this work, the drying kinetics of the brewer's yeast was studied taking into account the shrinkage effect. The experimental data were obtained using three different temperatures. The volumetric and thickness shrinkage was evaluated by direct measurement. It was found that yeast shrinkage is almost isotropic and has a considerable effect on the drying rate. In addition, during the drying the yeast shows only one falling rate period and does not exhibit a characteristic drying curve.
