ABSTRACT:
Abnormalities with a bowel movement are the major health problems worldwide and represent one of the main reasons for a digestive problem. Palmyra tubers are a root rich in fibers and can replenish bowel movement abnormalities. Palmyra tubers are packed with vitamins like B, C and during root heading seasons, the tubers are plenty. So, work was aimed to prepare fiber-rich noodles from Palmyra tubers for enhancing bowel movement. The objective of the study to determine the Physico-chemical properties of flours and to prepare noodles from these flours with a quality aspect like good taste, aroma, flavor, and texture, color, and appearance. The cooking quality parameters such as cooking time, cooking loss, and cooking yield were measured. The sensory analysis, nutritional analysis, moisture content, pH, Water Absorption Index, Water Solubility Index of the noodles were performed. The results showed that good quality noodles can be prepared from Palmyra tubers with high nutritional values. The microbial activity was almost negligible even after 90 days. It is understood that the noodles contain a high amount of fiber content (2.65g/100g), which facilitates the bowel movement.
