Objective: To evaluate the effect of cassava bran and hydrocolloids addition on color and texture properties of fiber rich pasta. Methods/Analysis: Wheat semolina pastas were made with 10, 20 and 30% bran additions, separately enriched with two types of hydrocolloid: xanthan gum (XG) or carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) in 0.5, 1 and 1.5% concentrations. Color and the textural properties of tensile strength, elasticity and compression were evaluated. Findings: Color analysis showed high luminosity in pastas with 10% bran and 1.5% XG. Nonetheless, the most yellow tones were found in pastas with 30% bran. Textural evaluation of cooked pasta indicated a greater strength and elasticity with lower inclusion of bran and higher concentration of XG. The same behavior was presented in the raw pasta strength. Improvement: Addition of bran decreased textural properties evaluated, while use of hydrocolloids favored them.
