MetadataShow full item record
This research was aimed to 1) study the condition and the needs of lime farmers 2) study the mean on how to add value to lime product and 3) evaluate the satisfaction of lime product consumers. Sample of this research which selected by purposive selection method were 63 lime farmers from Klongreau Village, Thepnakorn Sub-District, Kamphaengphet Province. The result, using In-Depth Interview, on condition and needs of farmer showed the oversupply on lime between the month of May and October of every year. Therefore, the farmer needs to develop lime product in order to add value to the products by Household Products 2) On the product development side, researchers studied 3 products which were soap, liquid soap and dishwashing liquid. Soap and liquid soap had Product Standard Testing Value of chloride at 0.64 and 4.60 grams, respectively while there was not detected free hydroxide value in both products. There was 22.69 grams of glycerin in soap but no glycerin in liquid soap. Another values in soap and liquid soap were fat of 26.95 g and 0.94 g, Nonionic 136.49 g and 0.65 g, Anionic 6.39 g and 4.17 g, respectively. There were also no Candida albicans., Clostridium spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa., Staphylococcus aureus., Yeast and Mold in the products. For dishwashing liquid, the pH value was at 7.18 without antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. All testing value of the mentioned products were matched of the community product standard. And 3) The satisfactory evaluation result on lime product for added value had a mean of satisfaction at ( ̅ = 4.31, S.D. = .49) When separated into each product, soap had a mean of ( ̅ = 4.56, S.D. = .48), liquid soap ( ̅ = 4.35, S.D. = .63) and dishwashing liquid at ( ̅ = 4.44, S.D. = .64).
