Abstract

This study was aimed to develop a substitute of glucose to be used in ORS. Physico-chemical properties along with microbiological quality of pop rice powder have been investigated in this study period. To develop a substitute of glucose, pop rice (khoi) was prepared from paddy (locally called Gios paddy) without sand heating, then grinded to fine powder and then packed (in high density polyethylene) within the sachet where ORS salt ingredients were kept separately. The sachets were kept at room temperature for three months and physicochemical tests along with microbiological tests were studied at regular interval of that time period. Results showed that the physical characteristics of the pop rice powder remained same, however a progressive increase in moisture content in the sample was recorded. Total bacterial and fungal count were slightly increased but were within the acceptable limit. Pathogenic bacteria such as coliform, fecal coliform and Salmonella were found to be absent there. The pop rice powder sample contained 833 gm/kg of glucose and 88.8 gm/kg of protein. The results were very much comparable to that of glucose anhydrous which is used in regular ORS formulation. Therefore, pop rice powder can be used as a pharmaceutical aid as a substitute of glucose in ORS.
