Abstract:

Ginger powder with high antioxidant activity, phenols, crude fibre and ash content was utilized for the preparation of ginger appetizing functional tablets. The flow properties of ginger powder categorized it good on the basis of carr compressibility (12.28%) and hausner ratio (1:1.14) and excellent (27o) on the basis of angle of repose. The tablets were prepared by wet granulation method with varying concentrations of ginger powder (5g to 30g) using gulkand as natural binding agent and hypertonic sugar syrup. On the basis of sensory evaluation the gulkand bound granulated tablets containing 25g of ginger powder found most acceptable. The granular formulation of tablets had Carr compressibility 19.19 per cent and Hausner ratio 1.25 when bound with gulkand. On the basis of angle of repose, the granules were found excellent for the preparation of tablets. The ginger appetizing tablets showed significantly higher antioxidant activity, total phenols, total ash as minerals and crude fibre in tablets.
