The study on Nutritional and Biochemical Investigations of Radiation Processed Food conducted by developing Health Mixes –I and II for diabetic women and adolescent girls were accepted and rated as very good. The Irradiated Health Mixes –I and II did not differ much in their nutritional quality from the non-irradiated samples indicating that the gamma irradiation at doses 0.25kGy and 0.75kGy did not alter the nutrient values of Health mixes. The shelf life of the Health Mixes –I and II showed that the CFU/g of the irradiated samples differed between two doses and also from non-irradiated samples. This indicates that irradiation controlled or lowered the microbial levels in Health Mixes. The pH and the rancidity in the non-irradiated and irradiated samples showed that the pH levels lowered over storage and rancidity increased. Indicating that the irradiated and non-irradiated samples differed in their pH and rancidity levels indicating that the irradiation has helped in lowering the rancidity levels and influencing the pH.
