Shweta Mahadik | Rupali Sengupta [8]


Abstract: Overweight and Obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health. Indian people prefer Chiwada in their evening snacks but as Traditional Chiwada has high content of fat so to make it healthy this Chiwada was modified. The comparison was studied between the Traditional Chiwada and the Modified Chiwada and it was observed that the fat content of Traditional Chiwada (55g) was higher than the Modified Chiwada (22.4g). After designing this product, sensory evaluation was conducted by 14 native panel members and 5 expert panel members using 5 point ranking scale. The product was standardised. The Total Dietary Fibre was calculated and it showed that Modified Chiwada (15g) was higher in Total Dietary Fibre than Traditional Chiwada (3g).
