daily seasoning powder (Furikake), calcium, phosphorus, total phenolic content


Fresh Liang leaves, a local vegetable of Southern Thailand, were dried, seasoned, and fortified with different ratios of dried shrimp and sesame seeds at 1%–5% for making a rice topping product (Furikake) named as F1-F5. The F5 obtained the highest consumer acceptability with high calcium and phosphorus contents at 4,299.45 mg/kg and 3,436.32 mg/kg, respectively. Total phenolic content and DPPH radical scavenging antioxidant activity of F5 were 2,575.22 µg GAE/g DW and 676.99 µg TE/g DW, respectively. Total chlorophyll and carotenoid contents were 11.38 mg/g DW and 3.52 mg/g DW, respectively. An increment of aw and moisture content (p < 0.05) of the F5 kept at higher temperature storage was noticed, and a reduction of L* value under all storage conditions was noticed.
