Author(s): Gadhe KS, Thorat PP, Sawate AR and Shere DM

Abstract: The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of particle size on functional properties of dietary fiber extracted from sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L). The dietary fiber extracted from sugar beet. The dietary fiber was sieved through the sieve of 18, 30, 60, 100 and 150 mesh size. The particle size distribution of dietary fiber was calculated and found the highest yield of particle with 60 mesh size. The water holding capacity, water binding capacity, swelling capacity, oil binding capacity and cation exchange capacity were found in decreasing trend while particle density was increased with increase in mesh size. The dietary fiber of 60 mesh size were suitable for incorporation in different functional food products like cookies.
