Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia HBK): Yogurt Processing, Formulation, and Sensory Assessment
Abstract: The objective of this study is to formulate and assess technologies for producing yogurt with camu-camu pulp, which has market potential and can be included in school meals, providing the general population with a nutritious and functional product. Three formulations of yogurt with camu-camu pulp were prepared, F1 10%, F2 13%, and F3 15%, with the following ingredients: whole UHT (Ultra High Temperature) milk, camu-camu pulp, dairy culture, and sugar. The micro-biological characteristics of the final products were within the standards recommended by ANVISA. Regarding sensory assessment, formulation 1 achieved the highest acceptability. The chemical, physical, and microbiological parameters were within the limits established by the legislation, and the acceptability of the formulation containing 10% camu-camu pulp was satisfactory. This is a more quality food option for the Amazonian and Brazilian population.
