Abstract:

The study aims at investigating shelf life attributes of three developed enteral formulae i.e. Balanced Enteral Formula, High Protein Enteral Formula and High Energy Enteral Formula stored in three different packaging materials (Aluminium foil laminated pouch, polyethylene terephthalate container and airtight glass container) under storage temperature of 27°C and 4°C for 60 days at an interval of 30 days. The effect of packaging materials and storage temperatures on change in moisture content, free fatty acid content, peroxide value and microbial load of enteral formulae was estimated across storage. A significant (p<0.05) change in shelf life attributes was observed in all the developed enteral formulae irrespective of the packaging materials and storage temperatures with increased in days of storage. Quality loss was found significantly (p<0.05) higher in enteral formulae stored in polyethylene terephthalate container at 27°C. Minimal loss of quality across storage was seen in formulae stored in airtight glass container at 4°C, indicating a better shelf life. Although there was significant change in the product quality, the changes were within the safe limit indicating their acceptability till 60 days of storage.
