Dr. Akanksha Mehto, Pratik Kumar Mehto
Guava fruits have very short shelf life making it difficult for distant marketing. The processing for guava needs to be developed in order to lower the marketing costs and reduce wastage and losses in the production chain. Guava fruits were used to prepare guava cheese by standard method. The influence chemical composition and storability of guava cheese were evaluated on the basis of pH, total titrable acidity, ascorbic acid, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, total sugar and microbial counts were determined on 0, 30, 60 and 90 days of storage.
