Conditions for the preparation of amaranthus seed-based traditional sweetmeat were standardized. The maximum expansion (1:4) of seeds upon roasting in an open pan was found to be at 170ºC. Physico-chemical characteristics of amaranthus seed-based sweetmeat prepared commercially in Uttar Pradesh were determined. Data showed wide variations in physico-chemical attributes of both jaggery-and sugar-based amaranthus sweetmeat (seed-based). The Equilibrium Relative Humidity (ERH) of the product was 43.04% at 30±2°C with an initial moisture content of 4.1%. Packaging and storage studies showed changes in moisture content and sensory quality characteristics during storage at room temperature, when packed in different polymeric Alms and PET jars. Products stored in 120 gauge cellophane bags and PET jars showed a shelf-life of 60 days at room temperature.
