Abstract:

Present research was undertaken to study the effect of storage period on fenugreek foliage dehydrated by different methods namely open sun drying without shade, open sun drying in shade, and solar drying without shade, solar drying with shade, microwave drying at 60% and at 80% power. The quality of fenugreek dehydrated by different methods and recipes prepared by using dehydrated product were compared immediately after dehydration and after two and four months of storage period in terms of colour, flavour, texture, taste and overall acceptability. It was observed that mean score for overall acceptability decreased with the storage period but changes were not significant. From the analysis of variance it was inferred that storage period had no significant influence on the overall acceptability of fenugreek dehydrated by different methods except open sun drying in shade. It was found that during the storage period of four months fenugreek dehydrated by microwave and solar drying with shade, solar drying without shade and open sun drying without shade was acceptable. And fenugreek dehydrated by open sun drying in shade was not acceptable even after two months of storage period
