The study entitled “Standardisation and sensory quality analysis of nutritious product from an indigenous fruit (Annona muricata)” was aimed to standardize nutritious products from Annona muricata and analyse its sensory quality. Annona muricata is a member of the Annonaceae family and is a fruit tree with a long history of traditional use. The fruit is used as natural medicine for arthritic pain, neuralgia arthritis, diarrhoea, dysentery, fever, malaria, parities, rheumatism, skin rashes and worms. The objectives of the study were to develop baked product (cake and cookie) from Sour sop (Annona muricata), to standardize the two products developed from Sour sop and to analyse the organoleptic quality of the developed product. In the study we selected fully matured firm soursop fruit and ripened at room temperature. Through pre-processing of sour sop fruit, we separated the fruit pulp. Using the fruit pulp, we made three different variations of cookies and cakes V1(30 gm Sousop), V2(40 gm soursop), V3(50 gm soursop). Sensory quality evaluation was done using hedonic rating scale by a panel of 9 judges. The cake and cookies were prepared according to the variations and the standardization procedure was done by considering the overall score of Hedonic rating scale of the three variations. It was found that, from the three variations of cookie V1, V2, V3, the second variation recorded the highest hedonic value of 7.2. Similarly, from three variations of cake V1, V2, V3, the third variation recorded the highest hedonic value of 6.4. While considering the results of hedonic rating of variations of cookie the second variation showed high preference and in cake the third variation showed high preference. The sour sop (Annona muricata) is abundantly grown in Kerala. This fruit has not been tapped by the processing industry. Soursop is a type of fruit that is used in medicine and cooking. It is low in calories but high in fiber and vitamin C. It has impressive benefits on our health.
