Topic : Development of Spirulina Fortified Pineapple RTS

Authors:Mane K. A || Ghodke S. V, Patil K.V

Abstract:The present investigation was undertaken to develop spirulina based pineapple RTS. Spirulina often known as super food is a natural algae (Cyanbacteria) that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidant, vitamin B and other nutrients. It is largely made up of protein and essential amino acids. The high concentration of protein and iron makes it ideal during pregnancy, after surgery, or anytime the immune system needs a boost. Spirulina powder was added in pineapple RTS in varied concentrations. Three samples were prepared using 0.01%, 0.1% and 1% of spirulina along with other ingredients to prepare product having adequate sensory attributes. RTS samples were evaluated for organoleptic properties. The best chosen product was assessed for its chemical composition. Pineapple RTS prepared with spirulina powder exhibited acceptable organoleptic properties. Fortification of spirulina to pineapple RTS increases its protein content markedly.
