Abstract:
The study was conducted to evaluate the shelf life of wheat grass juice incorporated flavoured milk drink (WGJMD). The control product was prepared with sugar (6%) and rose flavor, and WGJMD was prepared with incorporation of wheatgrass juice at 12:1 ratio (milk: wheatgrass juice) in double toned milk followed by sterilization with autoclave and cooling. The control and WGJMD were stored at refrigeration temperature (4±1 0C) and subjected to evaluate the physico-chemical and sensory quality characteristics. However, incorporation of wheat grass juice significantly (P<0.05) increased the chlorophyll content but did not affect the pH and titratable acidity. The sensory scores for colour and appearance, flavor and overall acceptability including consistency of developed product were significantly (P<0.05) lower as compared to control samples, but WGJMD samples were very well acceptable having more than 7.00 (liked very much) acceptability scores. Storage period did not affect significantly (P<0.05) the quality characteristics and sensory scores till 15 days of storage. It is concluded that healthy flavored milk drink prepared with incorporation of wheat grass juice (milk: juice, 12: 1) in double toned milk can be stored up to 15 days with good quality characteristic and highly acceptable sensory scores.
