The objective of this study was to reduction of fat uptake, and sensory properties of pectein, na–alginat, gelatein as coating solution material for potato pellet chips during deep-fat frying. The treatments were blanching and dipped in the coating solutions followed by air drying. The treatments were fried at 180 C° and analyzed for fat uptake and moisture retention. Sensorial attributes were also measured. It was observed that all coating treatments were reduced oil uptake during deep fat frying. Na-alginat reduced the moisture loss and fat absorption more effectively than pactein and gelatein.
