Reducing Fat Content of Fried Potato Pellet Chips Using Carboxymethyl Cellulose and Soy Protein Isolate Solutions as Coating Films

Malak M. Angor


The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of different percentages of Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) and Soy Protein Isolate (SPI) as coating material films for potato pellet chips during deep-fat frying on fat uptake, and sensory properties. Coating solutions of 2%, 6%, 10% and 14% w/v were prepared and heated to 90 ºC for 5 minutes then cooled. Samples were dipped in the coating solutions followed by air drying. The treatments were fried and analyzed for fat uptake and moisture retention. Sensorial attributes were also measured. The results obtained have shown that all coating treatments were reduced oil uptake during deep fat frying. The 10% was the most effective level in reducing fat uptake for both coating films. SPI coating films was reducing fat uptake more than CMC for all levels. All samples were found to improve all sensorial features of potato pellet chips compared to control.
