The biscuits were prepared by incorporation of dried sweet orange pomace powder (5, 10 and 15%). Further the chemical
characteristics of biscuits incorporated with pomace powder were found higher dietary fiber content. The carbohydrate
content of biscuits was increased and protein and fat were decreased with increase in pomace concentration. The control biscuits
have highest calories (446kcals/100g). The incorporation of dried pomace powder (10%) has calories (400.36kcals/100g). The
sensory evaluation of dietary fiber enriched biscuits was carried out by 9-point Hedonic scale by the panel of 10 trained judges.
The biscuits incorporated with dried pomace powder (10%) scored higher for all sensory attributes than other sample. Finally it
can be concluded that the incorporation of pomace powder (10%) in biscuits were highly acceptable and has health benefits due
to rich in dietary fiber.
