Abstract:
The consumers' demand for fresh fruits and vegetables has increased in recent years. Optimal fruit and vegetable (F&V) consumption has been recognized as one of the cornerstones of a healthy diet for decades. F&Vs provide key nutrients those are essential for promoting and maintaining health. The present study was undertaken with a view to optimize the percentage of beetroot, moringa leaves and pineapple for blended health drink preparation, as well as to study storage analysis (at room temperature (28 ± 4°C) and refrigeration (4 ± 2 °C) temperatures) of the beverage till it’s safe to consume. On the basis of above findings, it may be concluded that 25:15:60 concentration of beetroot, moringa leaves and pineapple was most suitable for the preparation of blended health drink beverage and can be stored satisfactorily for a period of 10 weeks at refrigeration temperature (4 ± 2 °C) and 6 weeks at room temperature with addition of sodium benzoate. Further blended health drink beverage which was stored at refrigeration temperature was more acceptable than beverage stored at room temperature (28 ± 4 °C).
