ORGANOLEPTIC EVALUATION OF SELECTED HIGH FIBRE BREAKFAST MIX
Author: Tharani Devi N., Amirthaveni M.
India is currently passing through an epidemiological transition due to rapid urbanization coupled with economic growth. This could have major implications on the present and future disease patterns in India, with particular reference to an increase in prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like obesity, diabetes, and coronary artery disease. Unhealthy, processed food has become much more accessible following India's continued integration in global food markets. The main objective of this study is to formulate a product rich in Dietary Fiber. In the first phase of the study, foods rich in dietary fiber such as oat bran, wheat bran, green gram and whole wheat were selected using various criteria like availability, acceptability and cost. In the second phase, in order to produce an acceptable product with high dietary fiber, recipes such as pongal, roti, kitchadi, adai, chapathi, upma, dosa and porridge were formulated and standardized using numerical scoring method. In the third phase, Total Dietary fibre, toxic compounds, phytates and metals like zinc, tin, arsenic, lead and mercury content of the product was analyzed. Thus from the results obtained, 100g of high fiber mix which contains 16.09 g of dietary fiber along with protein can be recommended for the NCDs. Bran is a boon to NCDs.
Keywords: Obesity, Non communicable diseases, Dietary fiber, Oat bran, Wheat bran.
