    Apart from the nutrient analysis microbial study is very much essential to know the microbial contamination after storage. So in the present study it is aimed to investigate the microbial contamination in the prepared fish and shellfish curries stored in tin free steel cans. The prepared curries of fish, shrimp, crab and mussel were stored in TFS cans at room temperature (30 ± 2°C) for a period of 18 months. During storage the cans were periodically checked in the intervals of 3rd, 6th and12th months especially the visual signs of internal and external rusting like appearance of can walls, adhesion of product to the can walls and internal rusting. About eight cans were selected at random from each batch processed to different Fo values. Four cans from each batch were incubated at 55°C for 4 days and another four were incubated at 37°C for 14 days. The incubated cans.. Read More»
