Authors:Ankitha R || Laxmana Naik N, Ashwani Sharma

Abstract:In this 21st century, sedentary lifestyle has hampered the eating habits which has resulted in the inadequate intake of essential nutrients, thereby giving rise to various health complications. The food and beverage we consume play an important role in our health and intake of right diet help to overcome diverse health problems.

Whey is a by-product of the dairy industry, also shows health beneficial properties, in current trend whey based beverage, is sold as the nutraceutical. In the present study, an attempt was made to fortify the curcumin into whey in order to develop a curcumin-rich whey beverage. Curcumin was extracted from raw turmeric by solvent extraction, it was purified. Curcumin, sweetener and flavor level were optimized in the fortified beverage. The antioxidant activity of curcumin extracts and formulated whey beverage was determined by DPPH assay and it was estimated to be 60.56% and 43.51% respectively. Developed curcumin fortified whey beverage had 2 weeks of shelf life at refrigeration condition. Due to whey and curcumin, the developed product can be considered as beneficial and highly nutritional in terms of functional properties..
