Safe and Prolonged Storable ‘Legume Sprouts’ and ‘Sweet Corn Kernels’

Sprouts

1 Sprouts

Sprouts and shelled sweet corn kernels are highly nutritious but have severe hygiene and shelf life issues. The current technology deals with process development to address the issues of safety, short shelf life and poor germination efficiency of seeds during winter season (Temp. < 20°C). Developed combination processing ensured microbial safety and extended shelf life up to 15 days for mung sprouts, chickpea sprouts, sweet corn kernels and 10 days in case of alfalfa sprouts when stored at 5±2°C. Processing also maintained the wholesomeness as well as reduced anti-nutritional factors of these products. The developed method could be an effective commercial strategy for ensuring safety and thereby promote its market access.

The developed method could be an effective commercial strategy for ensuring safety and thereby promote its market access.

Salient Feature
  •  It can be stored up to 15 days at refrigerated temperature (5±2°C) in packed condition
  •  Hygienic (safe) and nutritious with retained antioxidant capacity during storage
  •  Sensory and texture quality well acceptable
  •  Better option for consumers due to reduced anti-nutritional factors in processed sprouts
  •  Suitable for all age groups
Advantages
  •  Pre-seed treatment improved germination percentage during winter
  •  The technology ensured hygiene and safety of the product during storage
  •  Nutritious and organoleptically acceptable product
  •  Reduced anti-nutritional factors in legume sprouts
  •  Process retained antioxidant capacity of sprouts and sweet corn kernels during storage
  •  Extended storage life needed for its availability in domestic market
  •  Suitable for all age groups
Areas of Application

Sprouts and sweet corn production industries / start-ups
