The sweet orange based RTS blends using beet root and carrot juice were evaluated for their quality, acceptability throughout the period of storage. TSS (oB) was significantly increased with increase in storage period, in all sweet orange based RTS blends. T8 (S2B2) (15% sugar+5% beet root) recorded significantly highest TSS content. pH decreased with increase in storage period. Maximum pH was observed in T8 (S2B2) (15% sugar+5% beet root). There was increase in titratable acidity throughout the storage period. T8 (S2B2) (15% sugar+5% beet root) was found significantly higher. A significant retention of ascorbic acid was noticed in all the RTS blends. T6 (S2B0) (15% sugar + no blend) showed highest ascorbic acid followed by T1 (S1B0) and T8 (S2B2). There was a slight increase in the total sugar (%) content in T2 (S1B1) (10% sugar+2% beet root). Gradual increase was noticed in T8 (S2B2) followed by T7 (S2B1) which are on par with T2.β-carotene was degraded during storage in all RTS blends. T10 (S2B4) (15% sugar+5% carrot) recorded high ß-carotene content during the storage period. Overall acceptability (OAA) decreased with increase in storage period in all RTS blends and all S2 (15% sugar) based RTS blends (T10, T7 and T6) recorded higher acceptable score.
