One possible solution to the oil shortage in our country is to substitute either completely or partially traditional with non-traditional oils. Blending of groundnut oil with other oils would take care of the consumer's acceptance of its nutty flavour, while ensuring shelf life and nutritional quality. The present study was planned to evaluate various oil blends by studying the acceptability of a daily diet prepared using blended oils, the acceptability and shelf life of mango pickles prepared using blended oil by periodic organoleptic, physical and chemical evaluation and the chemical and physical changes taking place in these oil blends during intermittent frying

Abstract


One possible solution to the oil shortage in our country is to substitute either completely or partially traditional with non-traditional oils. Blending of groundnut oil with other oils would take care of the consumer's acceptance of its nutty flavour, while ensuring shelf life and nutritional quality. The present study was planned to evaluate various oil blends by studying the acceptability of a daily diet prepared using blended oils, the acceptability and shelf life of mango pickles prepared using blended oil by periodic organoleptic, physical and chemical evaluation and the chemical and physical changes taking place in these oil blends during intermittent frying
