Whey; Mango; RTS beverage; Sensory characteristics; Storage
Soft beverage industry has made significant progress during last several years in terms of production, but there is only a limited range of flavors available in India. Many types of syrups, sherbets and soft drinks containing artificial fruit flavors are well known throughout the world. The basic factor considered is the nutritive and therapeutic values, which make them popular and acceptable. At present fruit beverages are generally synthetic flavored, bottled and sold in the market. If this could be substituted with fruit juice and dairy whey, it will be more beneficial to the consumer, dairy industries and beverage manufacturers and fruit growers.
Beverages based on whey continue to receive a considerable amount of attention reflecting a growing awareness of the potential of these products in the market place. These beverages have high nutritional quality and increased energy value. These could be particularly useful in place where there is lack of food and improper nutrition leading to deficiencies of certain nutrients. Whey is the watery liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained. It contains about half of the total solids of milk and source of precious nutrients like whey proteins, lactose, milk salts and most of water-soluble vitamins [1]. Whey possesses preventive and curative elements and is especially used to treat a wide variety of ailments such as arthritis, anemia and liver complaints [2]. In India, whey is obtained as a by-product in the preparation of channa, paneer, cheese and casein. About 3 million tonnes of whey is produced annually in India containing about 2 lakh tonnes of valuable milk nutrients [1].
Therefore, conversion of whey into fermented or non-fermented beverages is one of the most attractive avenues for utilization of whey for human consumption. The development of any process for its economical utilization would be of great benefit to the dairy industry. At this stage, product diversification using whey as a partial replacement of water without much change in the existing infrastructure is quite feasible.
The development of nutritionally value added product could therapeutically help on improving the health of consumers. Mango pulp and dairy whey can be utilized to make the product therapeutic, prophylactic and nutritionally rich which may increase its demand in food and beverage industry. Introduction of new types of value added beverages might improve socio-economic status of the country.
Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is one of the favored fruits in the tropical and sub-tropical regions. It has an excellent flavor, attractive fragrance, delicious taste and high nutritional value that have made it one of the best fruits [3].
Many attempts have been reported on utilization of whey in the formulation of various dairy products but still there is a lot of scope to explore the possibility of its utilization in beverage industries. The researchers reported preparation of fruit flavored beverages using whey obtained from coagulation of cow milk [4]. Singh et al. [5] formulated a whey based mango beverages with 15% pulp and 78% whey. Soft beverage from paneer whey and guava was developed [6], while Sikder et al. [7] formulated different blends of whey beverages by using various levels of mango pulp (8-12%) of four different varieties.
Indian dairy industry is looking for new product ideas and technologies to meet consumers’ requirements and to increase profitability of the products. Product diversification is quite feasible using whey as a water replacer without much change in the infrastructure. India has plenty of fruits that are a good source of vitamins and minerals. As production of fruits is seasonal, there is a glut in the market during a particular season. Mango fruits are an excellent source of vitamin A and C, as well as a good source of potassium and contain beta-carotene. Mangos are high in fiber, but low in calories (approx. 110 per average sized mango), traces amount of fat and sodium. During market glut in the season, the pulp/juice from mangoes can be stored by proper treatment for utilization in the lean season.
Beverages based on fruits and milk products are currently receiving considerable attention as their market potential is growing. Besides being delicious, these beverages are highly nutritious. They may be particularly useful in places where there is inadequate nutrition, which could lead to nutritional deficiency diseases. Therefore, to make the best use of dairy whey and mango fruit, the present study was conducted to develop delicious and nutritious beverages from the combinations of fruit pulp and milk products.
Materials and Methods
Preparation of milk whey
The standardized milk was heated to 82°C and acidified by adding 2 % citric acid with continuous stirring, which resulted in the coagulation of milk protein (casein). The liquid (whey) was separated by filtration as per the standard method [8]. The filtered whey was centrifuged at 45°C to remove the fat (Figure 1). The whey obtained was stored at 4 ± 1°C and heated to 60°C before preparation of the beverage.
Preparation of mango pulp
The fresh fully ripened mangoes of Cv. Kesar were procured from the local market. The mango pulp was extracted by standard method [9] and stored at 4 ± 1°C until use.
Preparation of whey based mango RTS
The whey based mango beverages were prepared by blending of whey and mango pulp in different proportions like C1 (70:30), C2 (75:25) and C3 (80:20) respectively (Figure 2). The recipe for preparation of 1000 ml beverages with addition of pulp in varying proportions is presented in Table 1. The sugar 10% and 0.1% (w/v) sodium alginate were dissolved in whey by heating to 60ºC and then filtered through muslin cloth. The fruits pulp was added to whey and homogenized. Thus prepared beverages was filtered and filled in previously sterilized glass bottles (200 ml) leaving 2.5 cm head space and sealed airtight by crown corking. Then in bottle sterilization was done at 105ºC for 10 min and cooled to room temperature and stored at 7 ± 1°C for storage studies. Samples were drawn at a regular interval of 7 days and evaluated for various quality attributes.
Proximate analysis
The proximate analysis of whey, mango pulp and beverages were done for different parameters. The total soluble solids (TSS), protein, ash, ascorbic acid and total and reducing sugars were estimated by the standard methods [10]. The total acidity was calculated in terms of lactic acid for whey and citric acid for mango pulp by titrating against 0.1 N NaOH [11]. Fat content was determined by Gerber’s centrifuge method as described in the BIS [12]. Solids not fat of milk and whey were estimated by measuring the density of the sample with the help of lactometer and the readings were converted into % SNF as per BIS [13].
Organoleptic evaluation
The fresh and stored beverage samples prepared with varying levels of mango pulp and whey were served chilled for organoleptic evaluation and it was carried out by semi-trained panel of ten judges on a 9.0 point Hedonic scale [14].
Microbial Analysis
Microbial analysis were carried out by taking 10 mL representative samples and aseptically mixed with 90 mL distilled water and homogenized by shaking. Subsequent decimal dilutions were prepared with the same diluents and in all cases duplicate-counting plates were prepared of appropriate dilutions [15]. Total viable count was carried out using the pour plate method [16], whereas yeasts and mould were enumerated by surface plating on malt extract agar (Oxoid) with 0.01% chloramphenicol as bacterial inhibitor and incubated aerobically at 25ºC for 2-3 days [15].
Statistical analysis
The data generated in the experiments were recorded and subjected to statistical analysis using standard procedure [17]. The standard errors (SE) and critical differences (CD) at 5% level of significance were worked out for comparison of treatments and presented in the respective tables.
Results and Discussion
Proximate analysis of whey and mango pulp
The data pertaining to the various chemical characteristics of whey and mango pulp are presented in Table 2. It clearly indicates that whey and mango pulp were as expected rich in SNF and ascorbic acid respectively. Mango pulp was found better in TSS, total and reducing sugars contents whereas whey was better in protein, SNF, fat and total solids. The results obtained with respect to chemical characteristic are in agreement with the earlier studies [7,18-20].
Effect of storage on physico-chemical parameters of whey base mango RTS
Effect of addition of mango pulp on physic-chemical parameters of whey based mango RTS and changes during storage was studied and obtained results is presented in Table 3. Physico-chemical properties of beverages such as total sugars, reducing sugars, pH, ascorbic acid and overall acceptability were affected significantly by the level of mango pulp whereas it did not affect TSS and acidity [21].
A reducing trend was observed in total sugars and ascorbic acid whereas an increasing trend was observed in reducing sugars and acidity content during storage. No significant change was observed in TSS content of the beverages during 30 days of storage. Decreasing trend in total sugar and increasing trend in reducing sugar and titrable acidity was observed during 30 days storage. Increase in reducing sugars may be due to the conversion of sugar into reducing sugar in presence of citric acid. Also increase in per cent acidity might be due to the slight growth of micro-organism in the beverage. The results obtained are in conformity with those of earlier results [19] with respect to whey-based papaya pulp blended RTS beverage stored at refrigeration temperature for the period of three months. Also results pertaining to ascorbic acid showed decreasing trend. This might be due to loss of ascorbic acid during storage due to auto-oxidation and light. Noted decline in the ascorbic acid content of muskmelon RTS beverage during six months storage [22].
Sensory evaluation
The beverages prepared by blending of whey and pulp in different combination were analyzed for various sensorial attributes for their acceptance by using 9 point hedonic scale. The sensory scores obtained with respect to color, flavor, taste and overall acceptability are presented in Figure 3. It is observed that beverage sample (C3) prepared by addition of 30% pulp was liked most by sensory panel members as compared to the other combinations. The color, flavor and taste of C1 beverage maintained the highest organoleptic score other than the C2 and C3 beverages respectively. The result revealed that decrease in level mango pulp lower down the sensory score of beverage. Shekilango et al. [23] also found that a blend of three parts (w/w) acid whey to two parts (w/w) banana was the most acceptable formula in terms of flavor. The storage study of whey based mango beverage revealed that all the characteristics i.e. appearance, colour, flavor, taste and overall acceptability of sensory evaluation was in decreasing trend. This might be due to changes occurred during storage of beverage.
Microbial analysis
The beverage samples were analysis periodically for total plate count and yeast and mold count. The data obtained with respect to microbial load are summarized in Table 4. Total plate counts of fresh beverage samples i.e. C1, C2 and C3 was 2.00×104 CFU/mL, 1.93×104 CFU/mL and 2.05×104 CFU/mL respectively. As the storage period proceed the total plate count increases and after the completion of one month (30 days) storage it reaches to 2.66×104 CFU/mL, 2.73×104 CFU/mL and 2.62×104 CFU/mL in the beverage samples C1, C2 and C3 respectively. Yeast and mould count was not detected in all three samples (C1, C2 and C3) at zero day storage whereas it increases to 21, 19 and 24 CFU/g respectively after 30 days of storage. Similar results of total plate count were reported for whey-based mango beverage [24]. In spite of the potential benefits offered by fruit juices, concerns over their safety and quality have been raised; as freshly prepared juices have no process or steps to minimize the microorganisms if they are contaminated [25].
It can be concluded that whey can be found successful for the development of whey based mango beverages with optimum sensory characteristics. The nutritious beverages with better storage life could be developed by addition of whey up to certain extent. Mango based whey beverage have excellent color, flavor and stability was estimated to be high which means that mango pulp covered unpleasant taste of whey very successfully. An increase of both fruit and sucrose concentration might improve the characteristics of the blends. The sweetness of the product seems to be highly appreciated characteristic that must be related to the consumer habits.
