Abstract

Refined wheat flour, a key ingredient in cookie is mainly composed of starch which is devoid of nutrients particularly minerals. This study determines the possibility of using two different pearl millet varieties (Kalukombu and Maharashtra Rabi Bajra) as a replacement for refined wheat flour in cookie preparation. Cookies were evaluated for proximate composition, textural and sensory characteristics. Proximate composition revealed that pearl millet cookies had higher protein, ash and mineral (iron, calcium & phosphorus) content compared to control. Physical characteristics of cookies showed that the diameter of control, K and MRB cookies did not vary markedly. Quantitative descriptive analysis (QDA) method adopted to assess the sensory quality of the cookies revealed that cookies with pearl millet had better sensory profile compared to control. They had a combination of desirable and lasting vanillalike aroma coupled with typical baked millet aroma. In addition, crisp and crumby texture perceived in these cookies further enhanced their sensory appeal making them highly palatable. This study indicates the prospects for utilization of pearl millet flour in preparing cookies with enhanced nutritional quality and sensory attributes.
