Abstract :

The aim was to study the changes in quality properties of foam mat dried Chandramukhi variety potato powder and packaging film characteristics during ambient condition storage in LDPE pouches. The storage duration was 17 weeks. Quality parameters were characterized by moisture content, co-efficient of reconstitution, water activity, and total plate count of the potato powder. Packaging film was characterized by water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) and permeability of the film. During storage a gradual increment in quality properties except coefficient of reconstitution was observed. The WVTR showed substantial increment for 13 weeks, followed by decrement and permeability was remaining constant. The relative humidity, temperature during storage and storage duration has significant effect for changes in moisture content at p<0.05level. The relative humidity of storage and changes in moisture content has significant effect for changes in coefficient on reconstitution, water activity, and water vapor transmission rate of packaging film at p<0.05 level.
