Chyawanprash is a well know Ayurveda formulation mostly utilized to enhance immunity and stamina. In modern era, due to huge demand ofthis formulation, its large scale preparation in pharmaceutical industry is done by using machines such as Pulp extraction machine and Mawa frying machine. In Ayurveda text i.e. in tradition method, this preparative procedure utilizes manpower. There is difference in applied force as well as frequency of friction between Chyawanprash prepared by pharmacy method and traditional method. Therefore present work was planned to find the impact of these differences on analytical parameters of Chawanaprash. Quantity of obtained Chawanaprash by pharmacy method (batch B) was found to be 39.70 % more than traditional method (batch A). There was no difference in organoleptic characters of both samples. However physico-chemical parameters such as loss on drying at 105°C, Total ash, Acid insoluble ash, Alcohol soluble extractives, Water soluble extractive and Reducing sugar showed some differences. In HPTLC profile both sample showed absence of Ascorbic acid and presence of Gallic acid in different proportion. Due to frying Ascorbic acid may have hydrolyzed to other form such as L-Gulonolactone and thus not detected in HPTLC. Considering the yield, values of Physico-chemical parameters and HPTLC results, it is concluded that Chawanaprash prepared by pharmacy method is better than traditional method.
