ABSTRACT

The study evaluated the proximate and anti-nutrients composition of the mix-gruel blend of wheat, groundnut, soyabean and dried fish for breakfast. This study was done using six objectives and six research questions. Production of dried mix-gruel blend was formulated based on different percentages. The study adopted experimental research design to ascertain the proximate content, anti-nutritional content and sensory attributes. The population of the study was three hundred and eighty-seven staff and students from the Home Science/Hospitality Management. Twenty-three persons served as the taste panellists and were selected by multi-stage sampling techniques. Data obtained was subjected to statistical analysis of variance (ANOVA). The sensory result from the twenty three panelists revealed that there was no significant different in the appearance, texture, taste and mouthfeel all the samples assessed. Sample “B” (50% wheat, 20% groundnut, 20% soyabean,10% fish) has the highest score on general acceptability. The result of proximate composition of the blends of different samples showed that, there was a significant difference (P > 0.05) in ash, moisture, carbohydrates, crude fat, crude fibre and protein content. The result of anti-nutritional factor was found to be low in the different sample of the blend indicating possible bioavailability of the nutrient. The micro-nutrient results showed that the there was a significant difference (P<0.05) in the samples of blend. Based, on the findings of this study, it was recommended, that families can introduce this mix-gruel in their menu. The mix-gruel is richer in protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins, mineral and can as well help fight this double burden of protein-energy malnutrition and micro-nutrient deficiencies.
