Abstract

Maize : Soya blend (75:25) extruded at 150°C as sweet (10% sugar) or spiced (2% chilli powder) were packed in Polypropylene (PP) and a laminate of metallised polyester with low density polyethylene (M-PEΊΊPE) and stored at 38°C, 90% RH (accelerated conditions) and 27°C, 65% RH (normal conditions) for 60 days. Polypropylene of 35μm thickness and M-PET/PE 13 μml/150 μm thickness werefound to be inadequate to protect the products for 60 days at 38°C, 90%RH. At 27°C, 65% RH, both PP and M-PET/PE gave a shelf-life of more than 60 days for the spiced product. At the same storage condition for the sweet sample, the PP gave a shelf-life of only 48 days while the M-PET/ PE gave a shelf-life of more than 60 days.
