Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the physicochemical characteristics of sugar cane candies, which were prepared with different concentrations of sugar cane juice, roasted peanuts and extruded rice bran, and to monitor the microbiological contamination and the acceptance of sugar cane candies selected as having a greater physicochemical desirability. Simplex design was used to evaluate the concentration effect of these ingredients in the color, hardness and proximate composition of sugar cane candies enriched with rice bran and peanuts. Sugar cane candy formulated with 20% extruded rice bran, 5% roasted peanuts and 75% sugar cane juice was considered desirable with respect to physicochemical characteristics and it was accepted in sensory analysis. The final formulation showed an increase in constituents concentration when it was compared with the original candy, such as protein (from 0.28 to 7.2 g 100g-1), total dietary fiber (from zero to 2.30 g 100g-1) and lipids (from zero to 9 g 100g-1). Therefore, the sugar cane candy formulated in this work had an improving in the nutritional characteristics, when compared with traditional sugar cane candy, and a good evaluation in sensory analysis, demonstrating the commercial viability of the product.
