Development of Tomato leather from Ingredients Level in Low Calorie-High Calcium
Low calorie high calcium Tomato fruit leather was developed using calcium carbonate powder for calcium enrichment, as source of geriatric nutrition. Randomized block design was used for selecting the levels of ingredients in the experimental run. The product was evaluated for sensory characteristics namely colour, taste, body and texture, flavour and overall acceptability. Results exhibited that the sensory scores ranged between 6.35-8.35, 6.5-8.1, 6.8-8.2, 7.98-8.35 and 6.3-8.2 for colour and appearance, taste, body and texture, flavour and overall acceptability, respectively. Calcium had significant effect on taste and body and texture. The optimum levels of ingredients for Low calorie-high calcium tomato leathers were 0.5, 1.5 and 1.5% of calcium carbonate powder for treatments T1, T2 & T3 respectively.
