The study was conducted to find out the influence of packaging and storage conditions on proximate composition of paddy. Paddy seeds were stored in different packaging materials viz; vacuum packed bags (C1), polythene bags (C2), cloth bags (C3) and gunny bags (C4) stored at room temperature (25 ± 2º C) and cold storage (4 ± 1º C) for a period of 18 months. Proximate composition includes crude protein content; fat content, ash content and carbohydrate content were decreased with an advancement of storage period. Among the containers, vacuum packed bags recorded higher protein, fat, ash and carbohydrate content compared to polythene bags followed by gunny bags and cloth bags.

Key words: Paddy, Proximate Composition, Vacuum Packaging, Storage
