Manshi [13] | Sheel Sharma

Abstract: A herbal beverage that was optimised and blended using sweet basil, ginger, mint, lemon juice, and sugar syrup was kept at room temperature for 60 days. It underwent physical - chemical, sensory, and microbiological investigation. For two months at room temperature, significant changes in pH, total soluble solids, and acidity were seen. The Total soluble solids increased during the storage period and were reported to be increased by (13.0 ? 0.14 to 14.4 ? 0.4) ?Brix at 60 days. pH (4.41 ? 0.11 to 2.12 ? 0.02) and titratable acidity (0.54 ? 0.03 to 0.28 ? 0.01) were decreased in the storage period. Overall acceptability was also decreased (8.5?0.02 to 4.1 ? 0.05) after 60 days. T2 (Tulsi: ginger; mint; sugar syrup; lemon juice) (15: 10: 20: 40: 5) revealed the commercial potential for producing good and healthy herbal drink mixes, which will also be useful in supplying the consumer with good nutraceutical potential. The shelf life of the herbal drinks was determined to be interval at 15 days in room temperature; however, after this point, the acceptability decreased. It is suggested that the product be utilised within 15 days by elderly, young, and children.
