Do somebody have any experience of retort packaging of panjiri (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panjiri)? What would be the target temperature and holding time of sterilization for this and similar type of product. The issue is not having satisfactory microbiological results at 112 deg celcius holding for 4~6 minutes. And there is a possibility of burning affect by increasing the temperature due to dry nature of the product. Should we experience to increase the holding time at same temperature or increase both the temperature and holding time.
