Abstract

The present investigation was undertaken to study the acceptability of spinach and fenugreek stored in flexible consumer packages. Results of the study show that leafy vegetables stored in non-perforated packets are significantly more acceptable than stored in perforated packets. It also reveals that low temperature helps to improve the shelf life of leafy vegetable upto six days. Further it indicates that vegetable could be better stored without root and polypropylene (100 gauge) was found to be best packaging material for storing green leafy vegetables. However, the temperature; presence or absence of root; or type of packaging material used during storage, did not show any significant difference in acceptability of spinach and fenugreek.
