Th3_PHYSICOCHEMICAL, SENSORY AND COOKING QUALITIES OF NOODLES PRODUCED FROM FIVE GHANAIAN RICE VARIETIES

  1. 1. PHYSICOCHEMICAL, SENSORY AND COOKING QUALITIES OF NOODLES PRODUCED FROM FIVE GHANAIAN RICE VARIETIES Presenter DORIS AWUDI
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  In Ghana, rice is the second most important cereal after maize which is cultivated in all the regions of the country.  Though local rice production has been increasing, inefficient post-harvest practices have not allowed local producers to take advantage for the increased demand for rice.  Typically, a sizable proportion of locally produced rice in Ghana has a high percentage of broken grains.
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION (contd)  Therefore exploring other use of broken local rice grains will lead to;  diversification in rice utilization which will significantly increase the livelihoods of rice actors in the industry.  development of new rice-based products would add value to rice through extension of shelf life and satisfy the drive and demand for convenience foods.  reduction in both post-harvest losses and importation of noodle products
  4. 4. MATERIALS AND METHODS  Source of sample  Rice varieties from farmers located in Ashaiman, Afife and Kpong on rice irrigation projects through the facilitation of the Ghana Rice Inter-Professional Body (GRIB)  Five (5) varieties used : • • • • • Marshall Ex-Hohoe Jasmine 85 Jet 3 Viwonor

  8. 8. Methods for determining cooking quality, chemical and sensory properties 1) Cooking qualities  Optimum cooking time - (Li et al., 2011)  Weight increase - (Li et al., 2011)  Cooking loss - (Jayaena et al., 2010) 2) Proximate composition- (AOAC, 2000)  moisture, protein, ash, fat, fibre,  carbohydrate, energy calculation 3) Sensory properties – colour, smoothness, taste, aroma, mouth feel, firmness, elasticity, stickiness of both cooked and uncooked noodle samples  Descriptive test – 9 trained panelists with score sheets  Acceptability test – 37 untrained panelists using 7-point hedonic scale

  14. 14. CONCLUSIONS  Noodles developed from the composite flours of rice and wheat were acceptable by panellists even though an imported commercial noodle (used as control) was rated higher with reference to key desirable sensory attributes like elasticity, smoothness and stickiness  Though noodle formulated with Viwonor used the least amount of wheat flour which will have been the most preferred for commercial use, unfortunately some of the panellists were put off with the brown/red colour of the products.  The cooking qualities including percent cooking loss, optimum cooking time and weight increase of the rice noodles were acceptable. Values obtained were within the reference points or limits.  This study showed the potential for commercial production of noodles from some rice varieties produced in Ghana.
