ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to determine the proximate and sensory evaluation of snacks from African breadfruit and sweet potato flour. To achieve this, 4 specific objectives were formulated. 4 research questions guided the study. The study adopted an experimental research design. Sweet potato and African breadfruit were processed into flour using different processing methods. The composite flour was used to produce snacks and the proximate composition of the unblended flour samples were determined ( energy value, moisture content, protein content, fat content, carbohydrate content, fibre content and ash content. The sensory properties of snack samples on (color, texture, taste and overall acceptability) were carried out by 20 panelists using a 9 point hedonic scale as follows, 1- dislike mostly and 9- like mostly. The results revealed that values for breadfruit flour was higher in moisture content, protein content, fat content and fiber content than that of sweet potato flour. The moisture, protein, fat and fibre content were 9.28, 7.40, 5.58 and 5.20 respectively. While sweet potato flour had higher energy value, carbohydrate content and ash content with values 374.78, 87.23 and 1.60 respectively. The results for the proximate composition and energy value of the composite flour blends ranged from 290.72 to 360.80 k /cal energy, 6.29 to 11.27% moisture, 1.90 to 6.07% protein, 1.72 to 3.31% fat, 73.57 to 85.03%   carbohydrate, 1.53 to 3.07% fiber and 0.82 to 1.60% ash. Among the composite samples, sample D (50% sweet potato and 50% African breadfruit flour) exhibited higher values in protein, fat, fiber. The sensory properties results show that panelist preferred the control mostly in both meat pie and queen cake samples than the formulated snacks. Based on the findings, it was recommended that diversification of the use of these local food crops should be encouraged. Suggestions were made for further studies.
