Abstract

Shelf-life studies on a low dietary bulk and high cal density weaning food based on malted ragi and green gram were conducted. The moisture/humidity relationship studies at 27C revealed that moisture content of 11% and equilibrium RH of 65% were critical with respect to free flowing characteristics of the product. Product packed in flexible pouches and stored at accelerated (38C and 92% RH) and at ambient Indian Standard (27C and 65% RH) storage conditions exhibited increases in moisture content, free fatty acids, cooked paste viscosity and decrease in alpha-amylase activity progressively on storage. Shelf-life of the product packed in LDPE pouches was about 2 and 3 months under accelerated and ambient storage conditions, resp., whereas in laminate pouches the shelf-life was about 3 and 5 months, resp.
