A formulation of biscuits with Glycyrrhiza glabra (liquorice) root extract, Ocimum sanctum (holy basil) and Pimpinella anisum (anise) extract was prepared for enhancing the healthy beneficial usage of biscuits as nutraceutical, in conditions like cough or sore throat with a simultaneous attainment of the other health benefits. Both extracts and biscuits were tested for total flavonoids, total phenolics, alkaloids, and antioxidants and the liquorice extract was found to be rich in antioxidants followed by Basil and Anise extract. Liquorice extract was also found to be rich in total phenolics (3450 Âµg per 100 mg extract) while basil extract showed maximum amount of flavonoids i.e., 16,880 Âµg per 100 mg extract. The biscuits were also tested for various nutritional and sensory components and were found to be a good source of protein (8.4%) & dietary fibers (4.8%) as compared to the normal wheat biscuits.
