Sweet Shrimp

The province of Chanthaburi is located on the eastern coast of Thailand, adjacent to the sea. Besides being a significant area for the cultivation of tropical fruits, a portion of the population is also engaged in fishing, various cooperatives, and seafood processing businesses. Among the seafood products, sweet shrimp is one of the popular options, but it faces issues related to the texture when stored for only 1-2 days. This is in alignment with the research and development efforts of the Faculty of Science and Arts, Burapha University, Chanthaburi Campus, which aims to solve the problem of shelf life, enabling longer storage at room temperature for up to 30 days while maintaining the shrimp’s texture, sweetness, and aroma. Additionally, the developed product has been analyzed for nutritional value, and packaging has been designed to meet the product’s identity. This ensures that consumers can have confidence in the quality and taste of the sweet shrimp product, whether they enjoy it as a snack or pair it with rice.
