Abstract:

Flaxseed is known as a source of Omega-3 fatty acid. Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) constitutes about 57% of the total fatty acid in flaxseed. There is a need to promote the use of Omega-3 fatty acid for nutritional requirements. Linseed contains a high amount of Omega-3. An enriched mouth freshener (containing Omega-3 fatty acid) was developed with incorporation of Flaxseed to evaluate sensory quality and nutritional value of the product. Flaxseed Mouth Freshener was standardized using organoleptic evaluation technique with help of 10 panel members using 9- point hedonic ranking scale. Results show that a small dose 15-20 gram of Flaxseed mouth freshener as daily intake significantly supplements Omega-3 fatty acid intake.
