In the present study, influence of two types packaging (inflated polypropylene (IPP) and laminated aluminium foil (ALU)) and storage conditions (with/without 1 g of silica desiccant packets (SDPs)) on quality and shelf life of chewy santol candies were studied. After storage at 25 degrees Celsius for 30 days, it was found that the combination of ALU with SDPs presented the best treatment to maintain the quality of colour, water activity (aw), moisture content, total acidity, pH value, sensory evaluation i.e. (colour, odour, flavour and overall acceptance). Shelf-life prediction by using accelerated Q10 method based on moisture factors as an indicator of deterioration of the samples during storage. The samples were incubated at 25, 35 and 45°C and sampled every 5 days for estimated on physical, chemical quality and microbiological change. The predicted shelf life of chewy santol candies at 25°C of IPP and ALU packaging with SDPs using Q10 method were 25 and 27 days, respectively. However, the IPP and ALU packaging without SDPs, the products can be stored less than 25 days. SDPs provides a cheaper and easy method to keeping quality of the chewy santol candies. Therefore, the products with SDPs packaging can maintain the product quality during storage and has an acceptable quality to consumers.
