Abstract :

Banana, as one of the most popular fruits worldwide, has been long used as the main ingredient in many of local traditional dessert such as pengat, cekodok, lempeng, apam, lepat and bingka. These delicious banana-based local desserts have potentials to be introduced to the global market by improving their commercial values. One of the ways to achieve this is by transforming the desserts to become a ready-to-eat food for consumers’ convenience and preference. Thus, this study focusses on converting the banana-based traditional dessert to become a ready-to-eat food by adopting the sausage technology. The product development involved formulating the dessert based on the bingka pisang recipe using overripe bananas for the suitability of the process. According to the findings, the produced product has potential to be commercialized for local and international markets based on the overall acceptability in terms of the texture, appearance and sensory.
