MIGUEL, Ana Carolina Almeida et al. Agroindustrial use for the solids wastes deriving from minimally processed melon. Ciênc. Tecnol. Aliment. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.3, pp.733-737. ISSN 0101-2061.

One of the main impediments to the development of the minimally processed industry of fruits and vegetables in diverse parts of the world is associated with the significant amount of organic residues that are generated by the activity. Then, this work proposed to study alternatives for the exploitation of the peels and the pulp's leftovers of minimally processed melons. Of the peels three products were developed, compote, candy and icing candy; and with the pulp's leftovers was elaborated jellies. The products were evaluated about centesimal composition and sensorially, using hedonic scale of nine points, and counted with participation of thirty non-trained panelists. The results showed that the products made with the peels presented larger contents of ashes, protein and alimentary fiber. The sensorial test indicated that all the elaborated products, except the candy, showed acceptability for panelists, with rates above of 80%.

Keywords : Cucumis melo; food industry; pulp; sensory analysis.
