Encapsulated Lycopene, Tomato Juice, Whey, Beverage, Sensory Characteristics, Quality Characteristics.


The investigation was conducted on utilization of encapsulated lycopene for the preparation of tomato whey beverage, with a view to assess the possibility in the preparation of beverage. Encapsulated lycopene 0 g (control), 1 g (A), 2 g (B) and 3 g (C) with 0 mL, 10 mL, 12 mL and 14 mL tomato juice respectively, was mixed in whey for manufacture of beverage. The different levels of whey, tomato juice, encapsulated lycopene, sugar, acid, stabilizer, preservative had a definite effect on improving the sensory quality of beverage. The beverage prepared by utilizing whey with 2 g encapsulated lycopene and 12 mL tomato juice (B), had secured the highest sensory score and ranked as most acceptable product followed by others.
