Abstract:Overall this research substantiated that potassium's sensory impact on flavor perceptions is concentration dependent. High concentrations elicit bitter and other unpleasant perceptions. Presence of xanthan could aid in formulating fortified potassium products by lessening potassium's adverse flavor impact. A formulation containing 431 mg of added K+/100 gram sample, equivalent to that of a small banana, showed minimal sensory deviations from the control sample.
