Issue Date: Apr-2005
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Paradise tree or Bitterwood, Simarouba glauca DC., found in coastal region of Karnataka, bears fruits in the rainy season and birds eat them even before fully ripen to black. In order to explore the possibilities of utilizing the fruit pulp for processing, an investigation was carried out by researchers at the Division of Horticulture, GKVK, UAS, Bangalore. The juice was utilized for the preparation of ready-to-serve (RTS) and squash whereas the pulp for making jam. RTS of 15 and 20°Brix TSS with 15 per cent juice and 0.3 per cent acidity, squashes of 40 and 45°Brix TSS with 40 percent juice and one per cent acidity were prepared. While jams of pure Simarouba and Simarouba-Grape in the pulp ratio of 100:0 and 50:50 were prepared, respectively. The products were filled into the pre-sterilized glass bottles and pasteurized, cooled and stored under room temperature (24 - 28° C) for up to five months and evaluated chemically at monthly interval. RTS juices prepared with the recipe 15 per cent juice, 20°Brix TSS and the squash prepared with the recipe having 40 per cent juice, 45°Brix TSS recorded maximum ascorbic acid, total sugars and reducing sugars. Jam prepared using 45 per cent Simarouba pulp, 68.5°Brix TSS rated excellent. In addition, these combinations had better colour and was rated superior in quality attributes like appearance, aroma, taste and over all acceptability in organoleptic evaluation after 5 months of storage period [Ramajayam et al, First Indian Horticulture Congress, Abstracts, New Delhi, 1-8 November, 2004, p.384].
