Abstract:

Tamarind seeds are rich source of polysaccharide which is obtain from tamarind seed kernels. Present study was carried to examine the variation in Tamarind Seed Powder (TSP) yield with respect to different seed sources collected from Tamil Nadu (19), Kerala (3), Karnataka (13) and Andhra Pradesh (5). 100 seed weight were measured and seeds were roasted and Kernel and testa content and gum yield were measured. The maximum 100 seed weight was obtained in Aasan and which also recorded in highest gum yield. The percentage yield was about 50 %. This study shows that the seed source have great influence in gum yield.


Keywords: Tamarind Gum, Seed source, 100 seed weight, Gum yield, TSP.
