A biopersevative for extending the shelf life of fresh mutton
At present no technology is available for the preservation of fresh mutton without any chemical preservatives, which can improve the shelf life beyond 20 hours. DFRL has addressed the problem by identifying and applying an edible preservative viz. pomegranate peel extract which enhances the shelf life of fresh mutton up to four days at ambient conditions. This, thus increases the shelf life of mutton beyond twenty hours. The technology is highly useful for meat industry for improving the shelf life of fresh mutton without chilling.
