The study was conducted to utilize rimas (artocarpusaltilis park fosberg) for catsup production. The study aimed to evaluate whether rimas catsup possessed desirable characteristics in terms of physical qualities, proximate composition, sensory qualities, consumer acceptability and cost production.Different levels of rimas namely 0, 25, 50, 75, 100% were used to substitute banana in the production of rimas catsup. Qualities of rimas catsup were evaluated using the standard methods set by AOAC (1980).Rimas catsup got a pH of 3.88, TTA of 0.76%, TTS of 22.0’. Brix with a viscous consistency and a very fine and smooth textural quality. Proximate composition of rimas catsup is much better than its counterpart, although T0 got higher dry matter, ash, crude fiber content, however T4 got higher crude protein and moisture content of 0.84 and 74.54% respectively. Results indicated that out of 100 respondents only 39% signified they liked the newly developed rimas catsup and 15% disliked the product. For commercial catsup obtained the highest acceptability score with 41% respondents signified they liked the commercial product. While there were 5% disliked the commercial catsup. Catsup using 100% rimas in the formulation got the highest recovery yield of 69%, lowest production cost at P75.80 and highest gross income and net profit of P222.00 and 143.40 respectively. Therefore, processing rimas catsup is technologically possible and economically feasible.
