The analyses were conducted on three prototypes of jam, first banana jam without addition of ginger (VI Control sample BJ), then banana jam with 2% ginger (V2 BGJ 2 %) and banana jam with 4% ginger (V3 BGJ 4 %). By sensory analysis was determined acceptability, preference and product differentiation by consumers.
