Abstract: The attempt was made in the present work to ferment the juice of unconventional fruits. Jamun (Syzgium cumini L.), pomegranate, Cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) were chosen for the study. Fruits were collected from local market and farmers. Juice was extracted from the fruits and initial sugar was maintained between 13 to 26 °Brix. Fermentation was carried out using Saccharomyces cerevisiae at room temperature. Fixed acidity estimated in terms of tartaric acid equivalent was determined in the range of 4.2 to 6.9g/L. Radical scavenging activity of the fermented juice was between the range of 1.42 to 1.96 mmol TE/L. Metals such as Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn were estimated. Residual sugar was within 3mg/ml. Ethanol concentration was estimated in the range of 5.25 to 10.67% (v/v).
