- ItemBean-based nutrient-enriched puffed snacks: formulation design, functional evaluation, and optimisation(Food Science and Nutrition Journal, 2020-06-01) Tumwesigye, Kashub Steven; Natabirwa, Hedwig; Nakimbugwe, Dorothy; Lunga'ho, Mercy; Muyomba, John H.School-age children frequently consume snacks. However, most of the snacks they consume are of low nutritional quality. The objective of this study was to develop a nutrient-rich and acceptable extruded bean-based snack, which could contribute to improve nutrient intake, especially for school-age children. Snack formulations developed from Roba1 beans, maize, orange-fleshed sweet potato, and amaranth mixtures and processed in a twin-screw extruder, were evaluated and optimised for nutritional, textural and sensory properties.
