Pomegranate has been known for its antioxidant activity. A lot of study has been conducted on pomegranate and its derivative such as peel, seed and juice that are rich sources of bioactive compound such as vitamin C, vitamin K, polyphenols and flavonoids. Its functional properties of high antioxidant activity give rise to functional food products in the market that give benefits to heart and prostate health. Therefore this study was conducted to incorporate pomegranate as a source of antioxidant into coconut spread. The objectives of this study are: • To develop coconut pomegranate spread with added value (antioxidant) • To determine physicochemical properties of coconut pomegranate spread CHAPTER 2 LITERATURE REVIEW Properties of coconut…show more content…
The test was conducted in the sensory laboratory at the Faculty of Food Science and Technology, Universiti Putra Malaysia. 30 semi trained panellists between the ages of 18 to 30 were selected to participate in the sensory test. All three formulations were tested based on the hedonic scale. Samples were prepared in cups with lid and randomly coded with three digit numbers. Score sheet was given to each panellist that consists of the instruction on how to spread the coconut-pomegranate spread onto the bread by using knife. The panellists were asked to evaluate the samples in terms of colour, aroma, flavour, sweetness, spread-ability and overall acceptance using 7-point hedonic scale with 1= dislike extremely, 4= neither like nor dislike and 7= like extremely. Plastic knife and drinking water were provided on the tray. 3.4 Analysis of Best Formulation 3.4.1 Physical Analysis Color
