Packaging characteristics of sugar confectionery are briefly discussed. Sorption studies show that moisture levels of 6.0 % and 8.0 % are critical for Lacto Bon Bon and toffees with respect to development of stickiness and graininess. Milk chocolate with a moisture level of 3-4 % will have good keeping quality. Packaging and storage studies indicate that 100 gm of toffees prepacked in pouches of size 14 x 14 cm will have a storage life of 30 days at 92 % RH, 38°C in 300 MXXT cellophane; 53 days in 300 gauge LDPE; 116 days in 300 gauge HDPE; and 23 days in polycell pouches.
