The product was analyzed chemical characteristics, antiocsidative and hedonic quality. Chemical characteristics and antioksidant’s data was analyzed by statistical methods ANOVA followed by a further test of LSD whereas the hedonic quality test results were analyzed using Friedman test and Wilcoxon test. Statistical analysis showed an influence from the concentration of maltodextrin against the chemical characteristics and hedonic quality in each of treatment but no influenced against the antiocsidative activity. The addition of 4% maltodextrin concentration resulted the best hedonic quality.
