Abstract:
Present study was planned to estimate the cost of production of healthier chicken nuggets by incorporating pumpkin seed powder (PSP) and chia seed powder (CSP). Initially pre experimental trials were conducted based on sensory evaluation with incorporation of different levels of pumpkin seed powder and chia seed powder to optimize and finalize the experimental treatments. Finally, the selected level of incorporation for pumpkin seed powder (PSP) was 3% (3P), 6% (6P) and 9% (9P) and chia seed powder (CSP) was 2% (2C), 4% (4C) and 6% (6C). Then the cost of the products was calculated on the basis of cost of raw materials, depreciation in the equipment cost, overhead charges including wages or payment given to the workers. Finally, the cost of production of control and treated chicken meat nuggets was calculated in the range of Rs 252.05/kg to 273.06/kg. Lowest cost of production was found in 6% chia seed powder treated nuggets.
