The objective of the paper was to analyse the impact of drying parameters on the loss of dry substance mass of dried apples of Ligol cultivar during their rehydration. Apples cut into 3 and 10 mm slices and 10 mm cubes were dried with the following methods: natural convection (temperature of dryingC), forced convection (a tunnel drier, parameters of drying air: 50, 60, 70C and 0,5, 2 ms -1), fluid drying (60C). Dried fruit were rehydrated in the distilled water of 20C temperature. Research proved statistically significant impact of fragmentation of dried fractions on the loss of their dry substance mass during rehydration. Whereas research did not prove statistically significant impact of drying temperature on the loss of dry substance mass and impact of the applied methods of drying on the final value of loss of dry substance mass of dried apples as a result of rehydration.
