This study aimed to evaluate the effect of sucralose added in Greek Yogurt flavored with araticum (Annona crassiflora) and mangaba (Hancornia speciosa) through sensory characterization. The Greek yogurt was prepared with skimmed milk, inoculated starter cultures, filtered and it was supplemented with the appropriate amount of sucralose, added sweetened and pasteurized fruit pulp (araticum or mangaba). The total phenolic compounds and texture were performed and sensory analyses were carried out by Quantitative descriptive analysis (QDA) and acceptance test in storage for 7 and 28 days. The QDA results showed that the main attributes were color, lightness, creaminess, presence of particles, fullness, and aroma. Eighty percent and 85% of the panelists were said they would buy the araticum Greek yogurt and the mangaba Greek yogurt after 7 days of storage, respectively. Additionally, 71% and 77% were said they would buy the araticum Greek yogurt and the mangaba Greek yogurt after storage for 28 days at 4ºC, respectively. The sensory profile and acceptance test results of the Greek yogurts developed indicated no perceptions caused by adding sucralose to the yogurt after storage for different times. The highest concentration of phenolic compounds in the araticum Greek yogurt was perceived by the panelists in aroma and flavor attributes. Changing sucrose to sucralose was not imperceptible under the storage and consumption conditions.
