Abstract:
The experiment was laid out in Factorial completely randomized design with four treatments of calcium and packaging with two storage conditions and replicated four times. The changes in physical parameters were studied at an interval of 5 days. Among the different interactions tried, at 5th day storage interaction T2S2 (2% calcium chloride +200 gauge polyethylene bag) recorded minimum increase in PLW and minimum decrease in weight. It also recorded maximum increase in specific gravity during storage. No shriveling or spoilage was observed in all the treatments at cold storage. Maximum shelf life (22.5 days) was reported by the interaction T2S2. Among the different interactions under study, interaction T2S2 (2% of calcium chloride +200 gauge polyethylene bag and cold storage) was found to be best, as physical parameters are concerned.
