Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of “Standardization of blanching and sulphitation technique on physico-chemical parameters for dehydration of banana pseudostem central core for powder making using cabinet dryer” with 16 treatments were fixed including pre-treatment of blanching (B1-0 min., B2-2 min., B3-4 min. and B4-6 min.) and sulphitation (S1-0.0% KMS, S2-0.1% KMS, S3-0.2% KMS and S4-0.3% KMS). The prepared blended powder was stored at room temperature for up to 6 months (0, 3 and 6 months) in 100 g aluminum laminated pouches. The results were statistically analyzed using a completely randomized design with factorial concept. Results indicated that maximum potassium content (4964.25 mg/100g), (3690.77 mg/100g) found in B1 and S3, maximum iron content of (13.31 mg/g) and (11.13 mg/g) found in treatment B1 and S2 respectively. While highest TSS (2.83 ºB), (2.30 ºB), crude fiber (15.51%), (14.05%) and ash content (28.76%), (25.48%) observed in treatment B1 and S1 respectively. The highest SO2 content (72.18 ppm), (40.58 ppm) were found in B4 and S4 respectively although, highest L* value of (79.42), (71.32) were found in treatment B3 and S4 respectively. Also, the interaction of blanching-sulphitation and storage maximum potassium content (5216.00 mg/100g), iron content (13.67 mg/g) were recorded in P1B1S3 and highest TSS (2.90 ºB) in P3B1S3 while crude fiber (15.76%) and ash content (29.30%) was observed in P1B1S1 although highest SO2 content in P1B4S4.
