Studies on Nutritional Quality of Idli Fortified with Whey Protein Concentrates



Studies on Nutritional Quality of Idli Fortified with Whey Protein Concentrates







Most of the developing countries today depends upon various fermented foods that are staples in the diet. Idli is most popular breakfast food in south India which is very delicious and nutritious. The fermentation process increases the bioavailability of proteins and enhances the vitamin B content of the food. As it is steamed food, fat content is low and it is easily digestible. Idli fortified with whey protein concentrate (WPC) @5%, 10%, 15% and 20% were evaluated for nutritional characteristics. The protein content of WPC fortified idli were significantly higher then the control (p < 0.05). As a result of increase in the protein content of the idli sample with the increase in the levels of WPC. Idli fortified with WPC is high in protein and low in fat content and which is helpful for people suffering from diabetes, liver disease and protein energy malnutrition (PEM).
