Wheat chips, potato peel, dietary fiber, glycemic index and sensory properties


The aim of this study was to investigate some physicochemical, bioactive, nutritional, and sensory properties of wheat chips enriched with potato peel flour (PPF) at six different concentrations (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10% w/w). Lipid content of the samples were in the range of 45.57–27.46 g/100 g and lipid content of chips decreased (by 40%) significantly (P < 0.05) with the incorporation of PPF. Minimum and maximum hardness levels were 13.32 kg and 22.64 kg, as determined in the control sample and the chips enriched with 8 g/100 g PPF, respectively. Total phenolic of the chips was in the range of 364.7–1107.2 mgGAE/kg and increased significantly (P < 0.05) with increasing of the PPF. In addition, total dietary fiber content of the samples also increased (by 20%) significantly (P < 0.05) by PPF incorporation while the in vitro glycemic index content of samples decreased (P < 0.05). Sensory evaluation revealed that the chips with PPF (by 10%) were more preferred. In this study, alternative chips were produced using PPF.
