The effect of storage on the nutritional quality of sapota candy as influenced by different storage methods was studied. The selected candy samples were packed in three different packages viz. (metalized multilayered polyethylene) pouches, poly propylene pouches and poly ethene pouches and stored at ambient and refrigerated conditions. The candy prepared from 30/40/500Brix sugar syrup dried at 600C in tray dryer and stored in metalized pouches showed least changes in titratable acidity, ascorbic acid, total sugar, reducing sugar and non-reducing sugar. Sapota candy samples stored in metalized pouches were shelf stable for three months.
