Abstract:
Nutri–mix is an instant food type that can be a good supplement of essential vitamins and minerals that contribute to recommended daily intake. Ragi and oats are commonly found in almost all areas in India, and they can be used as good replacements for traditional ingredients in nutri–mix, without altering their nutritional content. Under nutrition in children is a widespread health problem in our country. ICDS that addresses the problem of malnutrition has been unsuccessful even after three decades of implementation. Nutrimix - a nutritious supplementary food given for malnourished children is not utilized due to monotony in its preparation. Hence an attempt was made to formulate nutrimix. The nutrimix was prepared using soy,chia seeds, jeggary, and different levels of oats i.e., 30%,35%,40%, and 45% respectively and four different levels of soyabean i.e., 30%,25%,20%, and 15% respectively. There are four treatment combinations used in the study i.e. T1,T2,T3,T4 were replicate three times. The chemical composition observed as carbohydrates content ranges from 63.71, protein 16.66, fat 13.13, fiber 11.70, and moisture 6.99 respectively. Therefore, treatment 1 was selected as the best ingredient combination for nutri-mix as it showed significantly higher sensory and chemical attributes among others.
