Abstract:

Wild aonla (Phyllanthus emblica L.) is one of the unique fruit which has got great commercial importance because of its high antioxidant and medicinal properties. Among various physical characteristics mean length, diameter and weight of wild aonla fruit were found to be 2.38 ± 1.10 cm, 2.35 ± 1.05 cm and 8.78 ± 0.28 g respectively. The mean juice content was found to be 35.65 ± 1.63 per cent (from whole fruit) and 44.50 ± 1.24 per cent (from edible portion). TSS, reducing and total sugar content of fruits was recorded as 10.50 oB, 5.06 and 6.94 per cent, respectively. The ascorbic acid and total phenol content of fruit was found to be as 598.32 mg/100 g and 15.98 ± 0.86 mg/ g respectively whereas, carotenoids of the same were found as 0.005 mg/100 g. Hydraulic press gave the maximum juice yield of 44.50 per cent and quality of juice obtained by hydraulic press was found to be the best as compared to other methods like manual extraction, food processor and screw type juice extractor.
