Bhagwat Saran Asati and Nitin Kumar Rastogi
An experiment was conducted at Pt. KLS College of Horticulture and Research Station, Rajnandgaon, Raipur, Chhattisgarh in laboratory condition during 2020-21 to develop Moringa energy drink blended with pineapple. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 03 replications and 08 treatments. Various chemical, nutritional and economics parameters were recorded under this investigation. The result revealed that the total soluble solid (TSS), total sugar, reducing sugar, total soluble solid, non-reducing sugar, ascorbic acid, acidity, TSS: Acid were significantly superior in the treatment T1 (10:90). The quality and sensory evaluation observations i.e. color, appearance, taste, aroma and overall acceptability significantly found superior in the treatment T1 (10:90). The economic parameters like product production cost, product gross returns, product net returns and product benefit cost ratio (B: C) (3.41) were also found superior in the treatment T1 (10:90). While the lowest benefit cost ratio (1.21) found in treatment T7 (40:60). Therefore it may be concluded that treatment T1 (10:90) may be selected for making best quality moringa energy drink blended with pineapple.
