The purpose of this study was to isolate wild yeast strains present in different fruits (apple, orange and banana) and to determine the yeast growth and the amount of alcohol production at various glucose concentrations. Three fruits namely apple, banana and orange were selected as natural sources for yeast isolation. Medium used for isolation of yeast from fruits was consisting of 50 glucose, 3 malt extract, 3 yeast extract, 5 peptone and 15g/L agar. For fermentation MGYP medium used with different glucose concentrations of 5, 10, 30, 50 and 70g/L.
This study aimed at production of mangosteen juice using mangosteen pericarp as a natural colorant. Furthermore, quality changes of the mangosteen juice during refrigerated storage were investigated. Formula of mangosteen juice was developed based on flavor and color by addition of sucrose and mangosteen pericarp, respectively. Mangosteen juice adjusted to 18º Brix and added with 0.2% mangosteen pericarp obtained the highest sensory scores of quality attributes for flavor, color and overall liking.

Cracking and Fruit Quality of Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) As Affected by Pre-Harvest Sprays of Some Growth Regulators and Mineral Nutrients
An experiment was carried out during 2011 and 2012 seasons to study the effect of foliar application by using some growth regulators (paclobutrazol at 300 ppm, gibberellic acid (GA3) at 80 ppmand NAA at 40 ppm) and mineral nutrients (3% Ca as calcium chloride (CaCl2), 0.3 % boron as boric acid and 0.3 % Zn as zinc sulphate (ZnSO4) after two and eight weeks from full bloom on yield, fruit cracking% and quality in pomegranate cultivar ‘Manfalouty’.
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.
The halal food sector is estimated to be a trillion-dollar global market, based on the preferences of an estimated 1.6 billion Muslims around the world.This publication is the first to provide an overview of the global halal food and beverage market. It contains trade data, outlines consumer trends, and explores how trade and investment support institutions (TISIs) can promote a national halal industry. It also shows avenues for collaboration between ITC and the Islamic Development Bank to help TISIs develop national potential in this fast-evolving market.
Abstract: Canning quality of twenty nine new drought-tolerant bean lines from two grain types; large-seeded and small-seeded, was investigated. Bean seeds were soaked, blanched, canned in brine and stored for three weeks prior to evaluation. Mex-142, the popular canning variety, was used as a control. The traits studied were Hydration Coefficient (HC), Washed Drained Weight (WDWT), Percentage Washed Drained Weight (PWDWT), firmness, splits, clumping, size, shape and uniformity.
