Beta vulgaris L., commonly known as the beetroot, is a root vegetable grown all over the world. Beetroot powder was produced at optimized conditions and then packed in two different packaging materials viz., HDPE and LAP and stored under accelerated conditions (40 ± 1 oC temperature, 90% relative humidity).The powder was analyzed for  moisture content, betalain content and colour. Both packaging material and storage period showed significant effect on powder properties. The magnitude of quality changes of beetroot powder measured during accelerated storage suggested that LAP was better choice than HDPE  for long term storage of spray dried beetroot powder.
