Snacks such as puffed corn are food products that have high consumption particularly by children. But unfortunately, these products have high calorie and low amount of useful components. One way to enhance their nutritional value can be using fruit powders in their formulation. In this study, barberry fruit powder (BFP) being as a rich source of bioactive components, was used in the formulation of puffed corn at levels of 0 (control sample), 2.5%, 5%, 7.5% and 10% and in the quality properties were analysed in the finished product. Results showed that antocyanins (from 3 to 110 ppm) increased by increasing the BFP, but pH (from 5.5 to 4.1) and oil content (from 25.5 to 19.5%) and water activity (from 0.8 to 0.65) were decreased. Also, samples containing BFP were in standard range. In addition, organoleptic tests of samples showed that sample containing 5% of BFP obtained the highest score and in higher amount of BFP the scores were decreased. In conclusion, the obtained results showed that there is possibility to produce puffed corn containing BFP which can be a new product with suitable nutritional properties and healthful in the market.
