Abstract:
The inter-relationships between poverty and nutrition are well known; poverty restricts access to food required to meet daily requirements or ensure dietary diversity and thus leads to malnutrition, while malnutrition can adversely affect educational and economic attainments, thus perpetuating poverty. Locally available foods which contains various nutrients like carbohydrates, proteins, essential amino acids (lysine, metheonine, valine etc.), “Preparation of Low Cost Value Added Indian Desserts (Halwa)”. with the objectives to determine the nutrient composition of malted wheat flour, malted barley flour, puffed amaranth seed flour, sweet potato flour, carrot flour and acceptability of value added prepared products by the incorporation of malted wheat flour, malted barley flour, puffed amaranth seed flour, sweet potato flour, carrot flour at different levels, to assess the organoleptic evaluation which were serve as treatment T1 (30g malted wheat flour,20g malted barley flour,20g sweet potato flour,20g carrot flour,10g puffed amaranth seed flour), T2 (25g malted wheat flour,20g malted barley flour,30g sweet potato flour,15g carrot flour,10g puffed amaranth seed flour) and T3 (20g malted wheat flour,20g malted barley flour,40g sweet potato flour,10g carrot flour,10g puffed amaranth seed flour) respectively, and “Halwa” was served as treatment T1 (30g malted wheat flour,20g malted barley flour,20g sweet potato flour,20g carrot flour,10g puffed amaranth seed flour), T2 (25g malted wheat flour,20g malted barley flour,30g sweet potato flour,15g carrot flour,10g puffed amaranth seed flour) and T3 (20g malted wheat flour,20g malted barley flour,40g sweet potato flour,10g carrot flour,10g puffed amaranth seed flour) without incorporation of “malted wheat flour, malted barley flour, puffed amaranth seed flour, sweet potato flour, carrot flour” (T0) served as control. They were replicated three times for all three products and orangoleptic evaluation was carried out using the nine point hedonic scale. Nutritional composition was calculated using the different chemical analysis procedure; data obtained during investigation were statiscally analyzed by using analysis of variance (ANOVA) and critical difference (CD) techniques. On the basis of findings, was concluded that in case of “Halwa” incorporation level of treatment T2 (25g malted wheat flour,20g malted barley flour,30g sweet potato flour,15g carrot flour,10g puffed amaranth seed flour) scored the best with regard to colour and appearance, body and texture, taste and flavour, overall acceptability. The cost of products based on raw materials (Rs/ 100g). The cost of the (Halwa) ranged between Rs 8.9 to Rs 11.45. Nutrient analysis of the products showed an increase in energy, protein, fat, carbohydrate, calcium and iron content when compared with control. On the basis of findings we concluded that the products for prepared by incorporating jowar flour at different levels were at par with control/ conventional food products as well as improve the iron, fiber and calcium content. These food products are beneficial for malnourished children.
