Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Beverage-The sap of Agave plant has nowbeen found to be a mainstream sweetenerwith organic credentials. In Germany it hasbeen marketed at health food shops as‘natural sweetener’.The sap of wild Agave has beenidentified as 100% natural sweeteningagent having less calories than sugar butgreater sweetening power. In CentralAmerica people (pre-Columbian) obtainthe juice by boiling leaves of Agave. Dueto its low water content (23-25%) theAgave juice has a good life under cool anddry storage conditions.

Condiment-The northern hilly regions of India are full of attractive coloured plums during summer season. Plum fruit is rich in carbohydrate and minerals. Being soft in texture and having less storage life, huge losses occur during various post-harvest operations. To overcome the losses converting this fruit into processed products particularly in the form of leather just like mango leather is advisable.
