tailieunhanh - Development and characterization of Biocolour (Beta vulgaris) enriched low calorie lassi (Yogurt Based Beverage)

Lassi is a popular traditional yogurt based drink from the Indian Subcontinent. Lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, spices and sometimes fruits. To increase the physical acceptability of lassi, it has been fortified with betalain powder which provides reddish colour. Colour is an important parameter for sensory analysis and consumer preference. However using synthetic colour could be harmful for health. In today’s progressive world a shift from synthetic to biocolour is observed. Betalain is a biocolour extracted from beet-root (Beta vulgaris). It also increases the polyphenol content of the product which will increase the anti-oxidant property of this beverage. In the present study, effort has been given to reduce the calories of lassi by using zero calorie sweetener, sucralose as it is 600 times sweeter than sucrose. | Development and characterization of Biocolour Beta vulgaris enriched low calorie lassi Yogurt Based Beverage
