Dietetic Chhana kheer has a shelf life of one to two days, even under refrigeration. Problems with such particulate foods have been sought to be avoided by adopting retort processing as there are inherent difficulties in handling such products in a UHT system. Use of retort pouch offers several advantages, such as the ease of handling, reducing processing time, and faster heating rates. Since retorting has been used to increase the shelf life for several dairy products, research was conducted to develop a process for the preparation of shelf-stable dietetic Chhana kheer in retort pouches with special reference to its sensory and physicochemical properties as influenced by various time and temperature combinations.
