Item Type: Student Project Report
Additional Information: Mango bar was used as a vehicle to deliver the micronutrient iron. Mango is rich in vitamin C and beta carotene which enable higher bioavailabilty of iron. Microencapsulation of iron was carried out using whey protein concentrate as the matrix as around 80% of iron is entrapped. Further, iron is known to be more bioavailable and stable in the presence of a protein. Microencapsulation helps preserve sensory qualities of the product like color, texture, taste and flavour. The products were designed to deliver 6 mg iron per 25 g serving size. This meets 1/5th RDA of an adult and 1/3rd RDA of a child (4-6 years) Colour and texture of products with encapsulated iron were more acceptable than products containing free iron salts. The products having encapsulated iron were brighter in colour.
