In present study the multigrain mixes prepared from finger millet malt, moth bean malt and drumstick leaf powder stored in packaging material i.e., polythene pouch and aluminium laminated pouches. The stored multigrain mixes were observed during each day from 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 and 90 days. Nutritional analysis indicated that both multigrain mixes packed packaging material and during storage period moisture content increases from 7.0 to 8.745%, protein content decreases from 14.97 to 12.85%, fat decreases 2.15 to 1.23%, fiber content decreases from 0.95 to 0.31%, ash content decreases from 2.24 to 1.67% carbohydrate increases from 70.13 to 72.159 %, whiteness index decreases from 24.19 to 21.187. Storage in plastic pouch is less than 90 days, based on the growth of yeast and mold.

Keywords: Packaging, polythene pouch and aluminium laminated pouches, thalipeeth, protein, fat, carbohydrate, calorific value, multigrain mixes
