Fortification of selected fruit juice beverages (Pineapple, Mango and Orange juice) with fructooligosaccharides (FOSs), a low calorie prebiotic has been discussed. Results indicated that sucrose which is usually used as a sweetener in fruit juice beverages can be partially substituted with FOS without significantly affecting the overall quality. The fruit juice beverages were evaluated for physicochemical and sensory changes during 6 months storage period at ambient (252C) and refrigeration temperature (4C). The pH, total soluble solids, titratable acidity, and colour did not change significantly (P>=0.05) during storage. The initial FOS content of pineapple, mango and orange juice beverages was 3.79, 3.45, and 3.62g/100mL. The FOS content of the fruit juice beverages stored at refrigeration temperature was 2.00-2.39g/100mL after 6 months of storage and 2.69-3.32, 1.65-2.08 and 0.38-0.58g/100mL at the second, fourth and sixth months of storage at ambient temperature respectively. The sensory analysis showed that the beverages were acceptable up to 4 and 6 months storage at ambient and refrigeration temperature respectively.
