Development of Instant Fish Soup Powder


The current technology deals with the development of Instant fish soup powder conceptualized on a similar product called ‘Instant Veg or Chicken soup’ which is predominantly available in markets across India. The developed product has a better over-all quality & can be stored at ambient temperature for 12 months. The shelf life of this product can be further extended by 6 months using radiation processing (5 kGy) at ambient temperature. Radiation processing of food is a well-known technology based on physical energy where no chemical preservatives are involved and does not increase the temperature of the food. It has been approved by various international and national organizations to ensure ‘Food Security & Safety’
