Kinnari Dhruve, PK Prajapati
October-December 2007, 28(4):94-96
Khadirarista was prepared as per classical method, modification was made that jaggery was used in few batches instead of sugar for pharmaceutical comparison. Fermentation occurred earlier and yield was more in Khadirarista prepared by sugar than Khadirarista prepared by jaggery. Both the Khadirarista were analyzed physico chemically. Difference in the Alcohol content between 1.61 to 5.13 and total sugar content between 27.59 to 39.50 suggests improper conversion of sugar. HPTLC pattern showed almost equal spots in both of the Khadirarista, prepared by sugar and jaggery.
