Increasing The Shelf Life Of Dried Fruit

A Turkish producer of dried fruit needed a solution to increase the shelf life of its rehydrated dried grapes in pouch. The dried grapes were filled into a retortable pouch with a volume of water (75% fruit, 25% water). The challenge for the retort process in the autoclave would be to allow rehydration of the grapes to occur, as well as increase shelf stability.
