Khakra Bhel for Obesity

Laxmi Govekar, Rupali Sengupta

Obesity has emerged as one of the global health problems. Overweight and obesity are important determinants of health leading to adverse metabolic changes and increase the risk of non-communicable diseases. The factors attributing to increasing obesity are increased intake of high calorie foods that are low in vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients coupled with decreased physical activity. Individuals with low fat, ad libitum, complex carbohydrate (LFAL) diet produced substantial weight loss as compared with a low energy diet. Low fat and high fiber intake had shown to produce more weight loss as compared to high fat and low fiber diet. The objective of this study was to modify a snack product i.e. traditional bhel which is high in fat and low in fiber into a healthy snack to improve its fiber and fat content. The khakra as a modified snack was made from complex carbohydrate and high protein flour and corns, sprouted moong, cucumber were used to improve the fiber content of the traditional bhel. A sensory evaluation of the modified snack was conducted by using 5-point rating scale for analyzing the modified food product. The modified khakrabhel was found to have low fat and high fiber content as compared to the traditional bhel and thus can be beneficial for weight control
