Abstract

India is one of the major contributors of agricultural produce to the world. Though the country has attained food security at the national level, hunger and malnutrition continue to haunt india despite Green, White and IT revolutions and economic reforms. Thus it is found that the country has to attain food security at household level. The main reason behind the lack in household food security is due to post harvest losses. Food processing is an important element to prevent post harvest losses and provide a better shelf life and nutrient quality. Processed foods include convenient foods like instant mixes, extruded foods, canned foods and dehydrated foods. Among the processed foods, extruded products and nutrient mixes have better shelf life and are easily acceptable by ail age groups.
