Proximate, minerals, vitamins and colour parameters of nutraceuticals impacted by different levels of soy protein isolate, sorghum pyrodextrin and basil leaves instant soluble powder was evaluated. A central composite orthogonal experimental design (CCOD) was applied for the combination of the ingredients of nutraceutical products utilizing the independent parameters of their levels of inclusion while proximate, minerals, vitamins, and colour parameters were dependent factors. Both quadratic and linear fitting effects were identified from the response surface evaluation of the products' variables that were dependent (P<0.05).The formulated nutraceutical product had 5.45% moiture, 64.65% protein, 4.65% ash, 2.27% fat, 22.27% carbohydrate, 360.73 Kcal energy, 652.83 mg/g phosphorus, 8.07 mg/g iron, 112.17 mg/g calcium, 341.21 mg/g potassium, 28.45 mg/g, 1252.06 μg/100g β-carotene, 1.31 mg/100 g vitamin B1, 0.71 mg/100g vitamin B2, 1.29 mg/100g niacin, 11.88 mg/100g vitamin C, 3.15 g/g, L= 76.48, a = -0.59, b = 14.41, colour intensity = 171.45, delta chrome = 18.77, and hue angle = -90.16. Based on the product's observed and projected physicochemical qualities, a regression graph revealed a nicely fitted model with an R2 value of 0.999.
