Fruit and vegetable production and consumption in Asia and the Pacific region have shown a marked upward trend over the past several years. Rising consumer demand in the region has come with greater awareness of food safety issues and increased need for convenience and quality. The fresh-cut produce sector has responded to these demands, and is currently at different stages of development across the region.
The present experiment was conducted to evaluate the best plantain varieties for chips and vegetable. Five plantain varieties; Cachaca, Saba, Kitawira, Niginu and Kibunga obtained from College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (JUCAVM) were evaluated for their processing (vegetable and chips) and physical quality attributes. The experiment was carried out in the post harvest laboratory in 2014. To determine the chips quality, the fingers were peeled, sliced to a thickness of 2 mm and deep fat-fried in vegetable frying oil at initial temperature of 180°C for 4 min.
