Briefly, the grain was soaked for 2h 1 part of tarwi — 5 parts of waterthe soaking water was disposed of, and it was cooked for 40 min, twice.

Assessment of the use of the hydrolyzed liquid fraction of the kiwicha grain in the fermentation process of probiotic drinks from tarwi juice: After boiled, tarwi juice was bottled while hot, cooled quickly and frozen for later use.

The purpose of this research was to assess the use of the liquid portion of the hydrolyzed kiwicha on the physical chemical characteristics and the viability of the lactobacillus paracasei BGP1, Bifido bacterium longum SP54 and the mixture of both during fermentation process and in the cold storage of probiotic drinks of tarwi juice.

Basic information Kiwicha reigned supreme among the Incan food staples because of its nutritional and medicinal properties. Human health benefits Super kiwicha, also known as amaranth, is a plant native to the Andes.

Despite the ban, brave farmers saved it from extinction.

The sensory results are important and are related to the quality of the product, processing, and composition of the substrate used and the concentration of its components Escalante et al. Original Article Assessment of the use of the hydrolyzed liquid fraction of the kiwicha grain in the fermentation process of probiotic drinks from tarwi juice: In addition you can make the kiwicha flake, ideal as cereal for breakfast milk complement, yogurt, etc.


Kkwicha analysis of the results of the 6 formulations assessed during post fermentation indicates that the viability of probiotics is greater when the content of liquid hydrolyzed kiwicha is increased. It is packed with amino acids, especially lysine, which enhance brain development.

Fermented foods and drinks of dairy and non-dairy origin play an important role in diets worldwide. The fermentation of substrates with only tarwi juice and sucrose did not show such viability; besides, the formulations designed and the processes developed led to the preparation of drinks with favorable sensorial characteristics. For example, grams of kiwicha contains calories: The batter obtained was boiled for 5 minutes, then filtered and pressed, and the solid materials were removed.

Dairy and non-dairy probiotic beverages. The wet cake was dehydrated in a dryer with hot air.

It is expected that the presence of the liquid fraction of hydrolyzed kiwicha determines the viability of such bacteria and improves the quality of the drinks. Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition56 9 Additionally Dunnet’s test was applied to compare means referring to the initial number of microorganisms in each formulation in the post-fermentation. The results kiwidha better resistance to the decrease in pH for formulations of type 3L, 2L, 3LB and 2LB, which in the case of the formulations with only Bifido bacterium longumthe growth of the latter decreases when the pH drops, a situation also observed in the fermentation stage.


International Dairy Journal5 5 Lactic acid bacteria as a cell factory for the delivery of functional biomolecules and ingredients in cereal based beverages: The Dunnet test performed with respect to the initial population jutricional each type of drink showed an increase in the significant differences in the course of post fermentation; Table 3 shows these differences with capital letters. There has been descriptions of several biological activities of isolated components of amaranth and quinoa as antibacterial, antitumor, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antihypertensive Carrillo et al.

Kkwicha, Tecnologia e Ingenieria17 2 The analysis of the results of the formulations assessed during fermentation indicates that the viability of the probiotics used was lower than in formulations 1L, 1B and 1LB with respect to the others. The juice hutricional was boiled for 5 -7 min to avoid degradation and also as a measure to nutricionak its shelf life. Non-dairy probiotic drinks are not new; several traditional products are produced in many regions of the world.

Compuestos bioactivos derivados de amaranto y quinua. Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture83 6 The viability of probiotics in the different formulations was improved in the following order: Employment of the liquid fraction obtained from the enzymatic hydrolysis of kiwicha grain in the production of probiotic drinks.
