Revista Gestão & Sustentabilidade Ambiental
Rays are world-class fish stocks, predominantly marine and tropical. The Hypanus guttatus ray, commonly known as a stingray and is one of the most caught species of elasmobranchs on our coast, however, most catches are seen as companion fauna. The objective of this work was to develop formulations for cereal bar innovations with the use of Hypanus guttatus ray meat to incorporate fish protein in a differentiated way in human food. Two types of cereal bars were prepared, one with granola [WG]
... ith granola [WG] and another no granola [NG], both enriched with ray pulp. Analyzes of centesimal composition (lipids, carbohydrates, ashes and proteins) were also performed. The cereal bar enriched with ray meat presented high protein (10.21 and 6.71%), low lipid content (2.57 and 3.02%) and was well accepted by the sensory panel, which included judges Aged between 18 and 57 years, with the granola treatment receiving an acceptance of 54.84% and no granola 45,16%. There are diversified ingredients in these bars and contain functional properties that make them ideal to be consumed as a daily snack.
