Sasema, which is served during parties and other gatherings, is a locally known delicacy in Guiuan, Eastern Samar Philippines. It belongs to the dry food category, made from wheat flour and wrapped like a candy. It is produced and patronized by local consumers. This study focused on the development of Sasema using the Palawan flour as substitute to the all-purpose flour. Specifically, the study worked along the following objectives: 1) to evaluate the quality characteristics of the Palawan Sasema; 2) to determine the acceptability level of the product; and 3) to determine the significant difference between Wheat flour Sasema and Palawan Sasema in terms of quality characteristics and acceptability. Findings of the study revealed that Treatment 1 (100% Wheat flour Sasema) and Treatment 2 (75/25 Palawan/Wheat flour Sasema) were the most accepted Sasema preparations. This was followed by Treatment 3 (50/50 Palawan/Wheat flour Sasema) and Treatment 4 (25/75 percent Palawan Wheat flour Sasema) was the least accepted of the four Sasema preparations. In view of the findings of this study, the following recommendations are offered: 1) shelf life of the Palawan Sasema should be determined using the same product sample; 2) the food product may be subjected for food content analysis; 3) packaging should be improved for product marketability; 4) follow-up study may be conducted on mass production including packaging and marketing; and 5) further study may be conducted using artificial sugar and honey syrup instead of Karo and commercial sugar for health-conscious people.
