MINERAL COMPOSITION OF SUMMER HALVA
Published: 17 Jul 2017
Abstract: Summer halva is a traditional Turkish sweet, the main components of which are semolina, sugar and sesame paste (tahini). This type of halva is mainly consumed during the summer period and that is why it is called “summer halva”. Besides the main ingredients, cocoa powder and some nuts might be used during the preparation of summer halva. Since sweets comprise an important part of Turkish cuisine, it is of significance to evaluate the mineral content of these kinds of products. In the present study, the mineral composition of industrially produced plain summer halva samples was investigated.
