This research work aimed to study the sensory characteristics of corn-based breakfast cereal with whole peach palm fruit (Bactris gasipaes, Kunth) powder. Sensory analysis was performed after approval of the local ethics committee (26884014.9.0000.5020) and written consent of the panelists. The samples were offered to 70 untrained panelists in disposable bowls codified with three random digits. The panelists reported how much they liked the product in terms of taste and crispness, their purchase intention, preference, and attitude or intention to consume. The scores given to the product with 25% whole peach palm fruit powder were significantly higher than the scores given to the other two study products, making it commercially viable.
Key words: Peach palm fruit powder, sensory analysis, breakfast cereal.
