Abstract: Foam mat dried muskmelon (FMDM) powder was prepared from a seasonal elongated variety and analysed for its physico-chemical composition and antioxidant activity. Application of FMDM in dairy products was evaluated. FMDM was found to be a rich source of total polyphenol content, vitamin C content and exhibited good antioxidant properties. Microstructure analysis of FMDM by scanning electron microscope showed the presence of numerous void spaces indicating its highly porous structure with lower density. FMDM possessed a characteristic aroma of muskmelon during sensory analysis and its application at 3 and 2% was found to be optimum during the preparation of flavoured flan and ice cream respectively.
