Keeping Quality of Sorghum Soybean Supplemented Wheat Flour Ladoos

Pandey L., Sangwan V.


The present study was done to assess the keeping quality of value added ladoos developed from newly released wheat varieties (WH-1129 and HD-2967) flours supplemented with sorghum and soybean flours. The control ladoos had mean score of overall acceptability 7.46 whereas all other types of ladoos made from combinations of wheat, sorghum and soybean flours had mean scores of overall acceptability ranging from 7.86 to 8.62, which were significantly higher (P≤0.05) than that of control ladoos. The protein and fat content in control ladoos were 9.06 and 20.14 per cent, respectively which significantly (P≤0.05) increased in composite flour ladoo of WH-1129 wheat flour to 11.39 and 23.00 per cent, respectively and to 10.89 and 25.02 per cent, respectively in that of HD-2967 flour. The crude fibre and ash contents in control ladoos were 1.22 and 1.39 per cent, respectively which significantly (P≤0.05) increased in composite ladoos of WH-1129 flour to 4.16 and 1.77 per cent, respectively. All types of ladoos were organoleptically acceptable upto 90 days of storage and fell in the category of’ ‘liked moderately’ to ‘liked very much’. The total bacterial count of ladoo of WH-1129:SGF:SBF (60:30:10) and (40:40:20) varied from 0 to 10×102 and 0 to 7×102 cfu/g of ladoo, respectively while that of HD:SGF:SBF (60:30:10) and (40:40:20) ranged from 0 to 9×102 and 0 to 10×102 cfu/g of ladoo, respectively. The total bacterial count of ladoo was within the permissible limit upto 45 days of storage.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
