Studies on the storage stability of dried food (onion) in glass and plastic packaging materials
The study on the storage stability of dried food specifically onion was conducted by slicing and drying fresh onion and packaged in glass and plastic packaging materials and stored. The samples were tested for microbial growth weekly from week 0 - 8. The results shows that dried foods stored in both glass and plastic were within acceptable range. But, the glass was found to be more effective than plastic because the samples packaged in glass were found with low microbial load than the samples stored in plastic. The result shows that dried foods can be packaged and stored for eight weeks and still have acceptable quality.
