An increasing demand for sugar free products are increasing world over including India which results in replacement of sucrose with fructose. Hence there is an urgent need was felt to develop suitable alternatives for sucrose and to enhance nutritional value of developed grapes pomace products. The present study, therefore, aimed to develop sugar free grapes pomace products such as squash, RTS and jam and to assess its quality and acceptability. The grapes variety and the processing industry was selected to collect the grapes pomace, were further processed and incorporated in the development of products. In the preparation of jam, squash and RTS the sugar as a raw material play an important role, so an effort was made to prepare a product with fructose in the place of sugar. The developed product was analyzed for its nutrient content and its sensory quality were also analyzed to ensure the acceptability of the products. In conclusion, it can be said that Grape pomace, a waste by-product can be a good source of value addition for the sugar free products.
