Abstract:
The present study was carried out to evaluate the physico-chemical properties of selected ingredients i.e. Rice, Black gram dal, Finger millet and Foxtail millet for the formulation of instant appe mix. Physical properties such as length, width, thickness, bulk density, true density, thousand kernel weight, porosity and angle of repose were evaluated. Chemical/proximate composition of the selected ingredients was analyzed for the parameters such as moisture, protein, fat, carbohydrate, crude fiber and ash, obtained result shows that rice contains high amount of carbohydrate (72.5±0.5%) and black gram dal was good source of protein (22.43±0.1%). Finger millet and foxtail millet were found to be having good nutritional profile with respect to protein, carbohydrate and crude fiber. Finger millet contains high amount of calcium with the value 336.6±0.152mg/100g. The selected ingredients found to be good in nutritional content and will help to enhance the health beneficial properties.
