Instant Fish Soup Powder
Detail Technical Brochure

Introduction : The current technology deals with the development of Instant fish soup powder conceptualized on a similar product called ‘Instant Veg or Chicken soup’ which is predominantly available in markets across India. The developed product has a better over-all quality & can be stored at ambient temperature for 12 months. The shelf life of this product can be further extended by 6 months using radiation processing (5 kGy) at ambient temperature. Radiation processing of food is a well-known technology based on physical energy where no chemical preservatives are involved and does not increase the temperature of the food. It has been approved by various international and national organizations to ensure ‘Food Security & Safety’

Advantages :

  • Instant- Easy to prepare - Just mix with hot water/boil & serve
  • High quality, nutritious instant food rich with goodness of fish and fresh vegetables
  • Nutrient rich appetizer with less calories
  • Soup tends to provide satiety with fewer calories than other forms of food.
  • Rich source of healthy nutrients, proteins, poly un-saturated fatty acids (ω-3 & 9)
  • Having combined effect of various processing methods (hurdles)
  • Export quality product & suitable for domestic consumption
  • Shelf stable up to 12 months in packed condition at room temperature; Shelf-life can be further extended to 6 months at room temperature using radiation processing (5 kGy)

Applications :

  • Food processing industries involved in Instant/Convenient/ Ready-to-Cook (RTC) or Ready-to-Eat (RTE) food commodities for domestic consumption & export
  • As emergency food during natural calamities/disaster management & can be served as military ration.
