Ice cream was prepared by incorporating maltodextrin with the objective of improving the functional quality of ice cream. Ice
cream was prepared by incorporating maltodextrin at four different levels viz., 1 (T1), 2 (T2), 3 (T3) and 4 (T4) per cent keeping a
control without incorporation of maltodextrin. A significant (P<0.05) difference in the acidity of the ice cream was observed
between the control and treatments. The fat and total solids contents were not statistically significant between treatments. The
melting time (in minutes) of the control, T1, T2, T3 and T4 were 6.21, 6.17, 5.79, 4.69 and 4.70respectively and showed a significant
difference (P < 0.01). It was found that the melting time of ice cream decreased as the percentage of maltodextrin increased. All
the samples showed no significant difference for total sensory scores. The results suggest that incorporation of maltodextrin up
to 4 per cent level was accepted by the sensory panel.
