Quality evaluation of segments-in-syrup as affected by steeping preservation of aonla fruits

Steeping preservation is one of the technologies comparatively economical and easy to follow for processing fruits for a prolonged period. In the present study, aonla fruits were preserved in solutions, viz: water (control), water + 500 ppm SO2, water + 2% salt solution + 500 ppm SO2,water + 5% sugar solution + 500 ppm SO2 and water + 2% salt solution + 5% sugar solution + 500 ppm SO2, up to 90 days...
