TROPICAL FRUIT FIBRE JUICE DRINK - PINEAPPLE
Malaysia is rich in tropical fruits such as pineapple, guava, jackfruit and starfruit. Besides eating fresh, these fruits are prepared and processed in the form of juices and drinks. These beverages are commercially available and highly accepted by the consumers. Fibre beverages are still scarce in the market. As a result tropical fruit fibre juice drink from pineapple was developed as it is the best alternative for a convenient, nutritious and healthy straight drink. Pineapple fibre juice drink was prepared by mixing fruit juice with commercial fibre, sugar, citric acid and water. The products were homogenized, pasteurized at 80°C for 5 min and hot filled into cans or glass bottles. These products are preservative free, have a good source of fibre, vitamin C and antioxidant activity. They are suitable for all age groups to enjoy the taste at any time.
