Sensory evaluation with 9 points Hedonic scale found that the base recipe of Sophon (2014) consists of 26.09% almond powder, 22.17% sugar, 26.09% icing sugar, 19.13% Albumin and 6.52% water has been accepted by the most panelists because this sample is crisper than the others. The result of using 3 types of Sacha inchi powders; raw nut, baked nut, and seed-based protein powders, found that Sacha inchi seed-based protein powders instead of using almond powder was the most acceptance.
