BERTE, Kleber Alves Santos; IZIDORO, Dayane Rosalyn; DUTRA, Fabiana Lemos Goularte  and  HOFFMANN-RIBANI, Rosemary. Development of functional yerba-mate jelly. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2011, vol.41, n.2, pp.354-360. ISSN 0103-8478.

The objective of this study was to develop formulations for functional jelly with extract of green yerba-mate and soluble fibers as inulin (INU), fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and polidextrose (PD), evaluating the effect of those ingredients in the functional jelly through texture physical analysis (firmness, consistence, cohesiveness), sensorial analysis (flavor and purchase preference) and chemical composition. The formulations INU, PD and composition INU/PD/FOS presented desirable texture for jelly dessert and not differing (P>0.05) of the reference standard with sucrose. For the sensorial analysis the functional jelly with INU obtained the largest index hedonic for flavor and purchase preference above 70%, higher than the reference standard. Considering the results obtained in this study, the technological application of green yerba-mate extract and of soluble fibers, presents evident potential for the development of healthy and functional foods.
