Papads (also known as appalams), a popular food in India, are thin, usually circular, wafers (toasted or fried) prepared from pulses and/or farinaceous materials with added salt and spices. With the increase in export of papads (figures given for 1965-66 and 1967-68) it was considered useful to make a study of their characteristics and quality as a prerequisite to understanding the concepts involved in papad preparation. 32 commercial samples obtained from different areas of India were examined. Ranges of characteristics examined were: wt. 2.2-24.6 g, diam. 6.0-23.6 cm, thickness 0.21-1.45 mm, moisture 9.3-17.1%, ash 1.5-13.2%, acid-insoluble ash 0.1-1.7%, alkalinity (expressed as Na2CO3) 0.3-4.4%, fat 0-4.5%, and pH 5.2-9.1. Of 31 samples assessed for quality (appearance, texture, expansion on frying) 15 were rated excellent or good in appearance, 7 had good or excellent diametrical expansion (40% or more) on frying, 7 had an undesirable alkaline taste, and 5 were rated as unacceptable because of the presence of one or more of the following defects: visible holes, foreign matter on surface of raw papad, foamy oil deposit on surface of fried papad.
