Starch was extracted from black bean seeds using a sodium metabisulfite solution (0.5%). The paste obtained after the extraction process was subjected to drying kinetics at temperatures of 40, 50 and 60 °C and an air speed of 1.5 m s<sup>-1</sup>. Empirical mathematical models were adjusted to the experimental data, in which the coefficient of determination (R<sup>2</sup>) and chi-square function (X<sup>2</sup>) were evaluated using the statistical indicators and finally the extraction yield was calculated as a percentage of the starch mass obtained in relation to the mass of black beans. The determination coefficient (R<sup>2</sup>) of all applied models showed values greater than 0.98 (R<sup>2</sup>> 0.98) and the Page model showed the lowest values for the chi-square function, in which they vary from 0.005637 to 0,003212. The extraction yield values varied from 45.35 to 47.62%, the highest percentage being obtained at a temperature of 60 ° C. However, the Page model at a temperature of 50 °C is the most adequate to represent this study, as it presented the highest value of R2 (0.9998) and the lowest value of the chi-square function (0.3212x10-2).</p>}, number={1}, journal={Research, Society and Development}, author={Almeida, Raphael Lucas Jacinto and Santos, Newton Carlos and Ribeiro, Victor Herbert de Alcântara and Silva , Virgínia Mirtes de Alcântara and Muniz , Cecília Elisa de Sousa and Silva, Rebeca de Almeida and Eduardo , Raphael da Silva and Santiago, Ângela Maria and Galdino, Pablícia Oliveira and Mota, Mércia Melo de Almeida}, year={2021}, month={Jan.}, pages={e37710111921} }
