The mixed fruit toffees were prepared from fig and mango pulp at different proportions viz. (100:0, 80:20, 60:40, 40:60, 20:80 and 0:100) with sugar, liquid glucose, hydrogenated fat and khoa (40, 10, 5 and 10% by weight of pulp respectively) and evaluated for physico-chemical and sensory quality characteristics. It was observed that the toffee prepared by blending the fig and mango pulp at 80:20 proportions was found superior with respect to protein content and organoleptic quality parameters.

Fruits and vegetables begin to deteriorate after they are harvested and separated from their growing environment. The rate of deterioration defines how long they will be acceptable for consumption. This is known as “shelf life.” To preserve the quality of fruits and vegetables and maximize profits for growers, it is critical to control the temperature of fresh produce and minimize the amount of time that products are exposed to detrimental temperatures.
