EVALUATION OF MANGO (MANGIFERA INDICA L.) VARIETIES FOR NECTAR PRODUCT PROCESSING ON THE BASIS OF BIOCHEMICAL PARAMETERSS. S. Mingire, S.M. Talane and K.N. Dhawale
An experiment on evaluation of mango varieties for nectar product processing on the basis of biochemical parameters was conducted at the Post Graduate and Post Harvest Technology Laboratory of N.M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during 2009-2010. The five varieties of mango viz., Neelphonso, Sonpari, Ratna, Sindhu and Alphonso were laid out in C.R.D. design with four repetitions. Non-reducing sugar and ascorbic acid content was found higher in nectar of Neelphonso varieties. While the TSS, total sugar, reducing sugars and acidity content was found at lower level in nectar of Neelphonso variety. The total soluble solids, acidity, total sugars and reducing sugars of nectar increased continuously during 6 months of storage while non-reducing sugars and ascorbic acid was found to be decreasing trend. In respect of non-reducing sugar and ascorbic acid content nectar of Neelphonso was found best than rest of the varieties.
