Abstract

This study aimed to develop pasta with Indian brown seaweed (Sargassum marginatum) as an ingredient to improve the biofunctional and nutritional qualities. Different levels of seaweed (1.0%, 2.5%, and 5.0%; w/w) were substituted to obtain seaweed-incorporated pasta and pasta without seaweed was used as control. The 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical scavenging activity (%) of seaweed-incorporated pasta was higher in cooked form as compared to uncooked (raw) pasta. Reducing power of seaweed incorporated pasta increased with the increased levels of seaweed. However, metal-chelating activity was highest (5.88%) in pasta with 2.5% seaweed. With regards to product quality, weight of uncooked pasta (25 g) increased to between 70 and 77 g on cooking, depending on the type of pasta. Cooking loss decreased in samples having seaweed up to 2.5% as compared to control. Pasta with 2.5% seaweed had rupture free nonsticky strands. Microstructure studies revealed that the incorporation of seaweed up to 2.5% enhances gluten network of pasta.
