Abstract:

The present research was carried out to investigate the effect of packing materials (Hermetic bag, 300 PP bag, 200 PP bag, White plastic bag and gunny bag) and grain moisture content at packing (13%) on quality of Green gram cereals for Six months of storage in the laboratory of Farm Structures, Dr. PDKV Agriculture University Akola, Maharashtra. The quality characters (microbiological and color analysis) were determined throughout the storage period and the changes in the quality of stored grain were evaluated in terms of these variables. When the gunny, white plastic and 200 PP bags were used as the packing material, it is clear finding that 300 gauge poly propylene bag is better packaging material as far as spoilage due to bacteria is concerned that is followed by white PP-HDPE woven bag. At the same time, hermetic bags were having highest bacterial load. In the study the results found that the maximum delta E value 44.28 color deviation in 200 PP bag and hermetic bag and minimum in delta E value 42.75 color deviation in 300 PP bag. Hence it was significantly color difference in different type of storage material
