  Seven wheat varieties i.e. Inqulab 91, Bhakkar 2002, AS 2002, Shafaq 2006, Sehar 2006, Auqab 2000 and GA 2002 collected from different locations of Punjab were subjected to physicochemical, rheological, minerals (copper, manganese, iron, zinc) and sensory analyses to determine their suitability for leavened flat bread (naan) preparation. Naans were prepared from different wheat flours and evaluated for colour, taste, flavor, texture, chewing ability, folding ability and overall acceptability. It was observed that Shafaq 2006 had the highest test weight (81.50 kg/hl), thousand kernel weight (41.20 g), zinc (8.50 mg kg-1) and lowest broken/shrunken grains (0.79%), insect damaged grains (0.45%), moisture (12.92%) and dough stability (4.11%), Bhakkar 2002 had the maximum broken / shrunken grains (1.61%), ash (0.61%), falling number (432) and minimum water absorption (54.05%), dough development time (2.21 min) and manganese (5.29 mg kg-1), whereas Sehar-2006 had the highest protein (10.84%), wet gluten (27.56%), dry gluten (9.35%), dough development time (4.12 min), copper (4.68 mg kg-1) and lowest edible foreign matter (0.42%), tolerance index (35.00 BU) and iron (14.80 mg kg-1). Naans prepared from Auqab 2000 were ranked highest and more acceptable than others.

  A comparative study was done to determine the most suitable storage temperature for tomato paste at which there would be minimum damage to the product quality. Tomato paste samples were prepared, 0.1% sodium benzoate preservative added, stored at 25oC, 6oC and -10oC and were analyzed for chemical parameters as well as subjected to sensory evaluation at 30 days storage intervals till 240 days. A gradual increase in Total Soluble Solids (TSS) and acidity was observed during storage whereas pH and ascorbic acid were decreased. These changes were more pronounced at 25oC than at 6oC and -10oC. Results of sensory evaluation revealed that samples stored at lower temperatures such as 6oC and -10oC remained acceptable after 240 days storage. However, samples were rejected organoleptically at higher temperature storage i.e. 25oC.
