DEVELOPMENT OF SODIUM ENRICHED OLIVE COCONUT DRINK FOR ATHLETES

Apala Chaubey*, Mahak Sharma and Barkha Bhatnagar

ABSTRACT

Rehydration after exercise requires replacement of electrolyte, primarily sodium lost in sweat. Coconut water which contains sodium, chloride, potassium and glucose as a rehydration fluid. Recently, attention has been given to coconut water, a natural attentive to manufactured sports drink, within initial evidence indicating efficacy with regard to maintaining hydration. Therefore the present study was designed with the aim of developing sodium enriched olive coconut drink which helps in maintaining a balance between sodium and potassium as required by athletes. Sodium Enriched olive Coconut drink was developed. One variation was done and named as jaljeera Coconut drink. They both were compared with the standard drink (Gatorade). Sensory evaluation was done by both hedonic and composite scale, evaluated by untrained and trained 10 panelist. The results revealed that the mean score of sodium enriched olive coconut drink is 8.4 which is lie between 8-9 i.e. like extremely and like very much in hedonic scale. the nutritional value of sodium enriched olive coconut drink, the total energy was 233kcal, total sodium content was 826.8mg and total potassium content was 788.8mg in 250ml of drink. This study concluded that this drink was acceptable by the subjects and can be used as a natural and alternative to manufactured sports drink with regarding the maintenance of hydration.
