Social Benefits:

They are shelf stable, without any added preservatives. The rates of destruction of sensory and nutritional factors being greater than that of microorganisms at lower temperatures, quick heat penetration in pouches/trays helps in better quality retention. Because of the shorter process times, many of the delicate Indian dishes can be processed without losing colour, flavour and texture.
