Research Title Reinventing Ice Cream into a Functional Food Matrix (Year 2 of 1)
Research Personnel Leader:

Research Duration Start:
8 August 2018
7 July 2020
Research Location UPLB-CAFS-IFST
Research Description The project proposes to develop a synbiotic (prebiotic + probiotic) ice cream using the fruits of earlier basic researches conducted in IFST-UPLB on pre and probiotics. Specifically, it aims to determine the anthocyanin content of Hinaligi flour; (2) evaluate the microbiological quality, physicochemical characteristics, proximate profile and sensory characteristics of the synbiotic ice cream treatments; (3) conduct consumer testing of the ice cream formulations, and check the viability of the probiotic culture during frozen storage of the synbiotic ice cream.
Research Objectives To develop a synbiotic ice cream, containing purple yam flour and mixed LAB culture, by improving the existing formula of the industry cooperator.
