Abstract:
An attempt was made to formulate ready - to - use products by utilizing muskmelon fruit powder. Muskmelon fruit powder was prepared by adopting optimized spray drying procees. The TSS content of fruit pulp was adjusted to 25⁰ brix and spray dried at a temperature of 180⁰ C. The processed muskmelon fruit powder was used for the formulation of ready - to - use products viz., instant drink mix, instant milk shake powder, instant ice cream mix and instant health mix. Five combinations were tried in each mix by incorporating muskmelon fruit powder with suitable ingredients. The developed products were evaluated organoleptically by using 1-9 hedonic scale to select the best combination for commercialization. Results showed that for all the instant mixes, the selected combination secured the higher scores (94 to 100%) in organoleptic studies than the rest.
