Muhammad Adam Bin Iskandar Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Dungun, Terengganu

Mangosteen Bliss Bites is an innovative cookie with the incorporation of dried mangosteen pulp as a value-added food ingredient in a basic cookie dough. Effect of different sweeteners on the consumer acceptance of the mangosteen cookies were investigated. Three cookie variations were tested: (i) without sweetener (control), (ii) with brown sugar, and (iii) with honey. Basic cookie ingredients used were wheat flour, butter, egg yolk and baking powder. Sensory evaluation findings showed that the mangosteen cookies formulated with brown sugar was the most preferred by the panellists for appearance, colour, taste, texture, sweetness, and overall acceptability.
