|摘要: ||本研究目的為開發高纖薑糖。首先以市售薑糖，進行產品描述性分析；再以不同採收期之生薑（嫩薑及老薑）、不同廠牌之黑糖，製備寒天薑糖，比較自製寒天薑糖與市售薑糖產品之差異性。再針對寒天薑母糖及市售薑糖之外包裝、單顆包裝、色澤、口感風味及整體喜好性，進行消費者喜好性品評實驗。本研究以未受過品評訓練之台南某科技大學師生及民眾，願意接受問卷調查者為對象，並排除患有糖尿病之慢性疾病者。受訪者319位，排除無效品評問卷，有效問卷共254份。消費者喜好性品評實驗，主要分析不同年齡層（包括10 -29歲、30 -49歲及50歲以上，三個年齡層）對薑糖喜好性之相關性。並以 SPSS 17.0統計軟體，進行資料分析。結果顯示：四種市售薑糖中，以古早味薑母糖之香味、辣味、Q感最明顯，故選用古早味薑母糖做為消費者喜好性品評之對照組樣品。在嫩薑、老薑及不同品牌黑糖的選用上，以老薑與A牌黑糖，製作薑糖之風味最佳。在消費者對薑糖的喜好性調查結果顯示，89％的受訪者敢吃薑。其中66.1％受訪者喜歡吃薑；78.3％受訪者表示吃過薑糖，並與年齡（10 - 29歲、30- 49歲及50歲以上），有統計上差異（p<0.05）。自製寒天薑母糖與市售薑糖之喜好性品評分析顯示，受試者對寒天薑母糖之外包裝、單顆包裝、色澤、口感風味及整體喜好性皆顯著優於市售薑糖。自製寒天薑母糖與市售薑糖之6個月的儲存實驗，二者之總生菌數含量，最高為1×103 cfu/g，且大腸桿菌及大腸桿菌群皆未檢出，顯示其衛生品質良好，保存期限可長達6個月。寒天薑母糖之開發，除了平衡生薑市場供需之外，更是全國首創的高纖軟糖，能提供消費者薑糖之健康新選擇。|
