Papad, Ambadi, Ambat Chukka, Total Phenolic Content, Antioxidant Capacity, ABTS.


Papad is a popular Indian traditional snack food prepared from different legumes and cereals. An attempt has been made to increase phenolic contents and antioxidant capacity by incorporating green leafy vegetables viz., ambadi and ambat chukka in the range of 10 to 30%. Initially percentage of these vegetables in papad were optimized on the basis of sensory overall acceptability score which showed 10% ambadi and 20% ambat chukka suitable for incorporation. Papad enriched with 10% ambadi and 20% ambat chukka showed increased value of phenolic content i.e. 37.65 and 18.46% respectively. Further an increased antioxidant capacity (ABTS) was observed for 10% ambadi (46.34%) and 20% ambat chukka (55.10%). Phenolic content and antioxidant capacity was retained more efficiently when the samples were stored at 30°C for 30 days.
