Comparative Study Between Local and Imported Apple (Malus domestica) Fruits and their Uses in Juice Production

Mohammed A.Y. Abdualrahman

Abstract:
Background and Objective: Apple is the pomaceous fruit of the apple tree in the rose family. The aim of this study was to investigate the comparative study between local and imported apple fruits and their uses in juice production. Methods: For this, local and imported apple fruits were carried out in term of physico-chemical characteristic. Results: The physical characteristics results indicated that, imported apple fruit had higher contents of whole weight, pulps, length, width and volume (108.8 g, 88.64%, 117±0.01 mm, 90.3±0.03 mm and 144±0.01 mL3), respectively. In addition to this, the chemical analysis of local and imported apple fruits were moisture (82.75±0.01 and 83.50±0.02%), crude protein (0.23±0.03 and 0.25±0.01%), ash (0.30±0.02 and 0.27±0.03%), crude fat (0.41±0.04 and 0.35±0.01%), crude fiber (1.64±0.01 and 1.83±0.04%) and total carbohydrates (14.67±0.01 and 13.80±0.01%), respectively. On other hand, the pH and TSS values of local and imported apple fruit juices were (3.90±0.04 and 4.18±0.01), (13.80±0.02 and 14.60±0.02%), respectively. The sensory analysis indicated that, the apple fruit juices were accepted by the panelists and there are significant differences as regard to consistency, flavour and general acceptability. Conclusion: It could be concluded that, the imported apple fruit had a good quality in term of its physical characteristics.
