A Study of Optimum Formula for Healthy Thai Jelly Sugar Candy Production





Corn milk, Non-glutinous rice flour, Stevia leaf extract, Thai jelly sugar candy


This research developed healthy Thai jelly sugar candy (TJSC) products with a mixture design. Physical properties and sensory acceptance by untrained panelists were investigated. The results showed that the suitable ratio of coconut milk, sugar, and wheat flour were 60, 30, and 10 %, respectively. The effect of different flour replacing wheat flour on the quality of TJSC was examined.  It was found that TJSC produced from non-glutinous rice flour had the most physical properties like wheat flour, and the overall liking score was not different from wheat flour (p > 0.05). The optimum ratio of corn milk instead of coconut milk was investigated.  The ratio of corn milk per coconut milk was 50:50 had a high overall liking score, and it was not different from the formula with 100 % of coconut milk. The stevia instead some parts of sugar were explored. It was found that the optimum ratio of sugar to stevia leaf extract was 80:20, which was a formula with an overall liking score not different from 100 % of sugar. The chemical composition of healthy TJSC products was analyzed. It has a lower total amount of fat and energy than the control formula. In addition, the development of flavoring with herbs such as ginger, galangal, lemongrass, and sunchoke made diverse products. Therefore, healthy TJSC products can be used as an alternative food for consumers who have limited intake.
