Evaluation of Accelerated Stability study of KVGAP’S Nutricare powder - An Ayurvedic Neutraceutical Product
Keywords:Accelerated stability study, KVGAP’S Nutricare Powder, Shelf life
Accelerated stability study of KVGAP’S Nutricare powder was conducted as per the standard guidelines . 3 pilot batches of KVGAP’S Nutricare powder were manufactured in KVG Ayurveda pharma and Research centre , Sullia by following methods and procedures used for commercial scale production batches. Samples were stored at accelerated40 ± 2 °C, relative humidity was 75 ± 5%. The reference samples for the above study were stored at a temperature less than 10 0c. The samples were withdrawn from the stability chamber at the intervals of 0, 3, and 6 months and evaluated for organoleptic characters, physicochemical parameters, TLC, microbial analysis, test for specific pathogen. . Results showed no significant change in odor, taste, and appearance of Nutricare powder after storing for 6 months under accelerated conditions. Physicochemical profiles (moisture content, total ash, acid-insoluble ash, pH, water-soluble extractive, alcohol-soluble extractives and acid-insoluble ash,) of the samples during the study period of 6 months didn’t show many differences. Microbiological analysis of the samples showed no signs of microbial growth and specific pathogens were absent in all the samples. After extrapolating the data, shelf life of Nutricare powder (Reference samples) was found to be 6.12 years and accelerated study samples were found to be 4.49 years. . Thus it can be established that Nutricare powder is having shelf life of 4.49 years and product remains stable in accelerated temperature conditions.
