Author(s): Binod Kumar Bharti, Anamika Das and Bipin Kumar Singh
Abstract: Ghee is used as media for absorption of fat-soluble vitamins in the food. Flaxseed has been considered as a functional food, so it is associated with health effects. In the present study the herbal ghee was prepared from cow ghee by using flaxseed oil at three different levels viz. 5% percent, 10 percent, and 15 percent and brahmi leaves at four different levels viz. 5 percent, 10 percent, 15 percent, and 20 percent of the content. This prepared ghee was compared with control (T0) i.e. without addition of flaxseed oil and brahmi leaves. From the result of present investigation, the most acceptable quality of cow ghee was prepared by using 10 percent flaxseed oil and 15 percent brahmi leaves. It revealed that the highest value for Colour (L) Test was recorded 71.24 in control sample T0 and treatmentsT1, T2, T5, T3, T4, T6, T7, T9, T8, T10, T11 and T12 has the value of 70.47, 68.24, 67.37, 67.17, 66.85, 66.12, 65.63, 60.95, 60.54, 59.28, 58.24 and 56.38 respectively. The highest value for Colour (a*) Test was recorded 56.24 in control sample T0 and treatmentsT4, T1, T3, T2, T6, T5, T7, T8, T11, T12, T10 and T9 has the value of 54.92, 54.67, 54.30, 54.10, 51.56, 51.42, 51.34, 51.12, 49.92, 49.54, 49.44 and 49.33 respectively. The highest value for Colour (b*) Test was recorded 59.65 in sample T0 and treatments T1, T2, T3, T4, T7, T6, T8, T5, T10, T9, T11 and T12 has the mean value of 54.53, 54.46, 54.40, 54.11, 45.22, 45.20, 45.17, 45.15, 37.66, 37.65, 37.59 and 37.52 respectively.
