Virendra Singh and Lakshmi BK

Experiment was conducted at Research Laboratories of Department of Food Process Engineering, SHIATS, Allahabad to utilize the Sweet potato flour and oyster mushroom powder for preparation of Tikki mix. The sweet potato tubers were brought from local market of Allahabad and oyster mushroom obtained from Department of Plant protection, SHIATS Allahabad and then tubers with sorted washed, peeled, sliced, blanched, dried and milled into flour form. Sweet potato flour contains less amount of protein, although rich in dietary fiber content and carbohydrate, so a successful combination with oyster mushroom powder for Tikki mix production would be nutritionally advantageous. In this experiment Sweet potato flour was blended with oyster mushroom powder in ratio of 94%, 88%, 82% with control 100% Sweet potato flour. These were evaluated for sensory analysis that included color, flavor, taste, texture and overall acceptability of SPF and mushroom powder Tikki mix and analyzed for chemical properties viz; moisture, protein, fiber, fat and ash contents. On the basis of nutritional value T2 was found high fiber content than other samples and high score for over-all acceptability with containing of 88% sweet potato flour. Thus, the product was found to be acceptable after the storage period.
