This study was conducted to investigate the Total bacterial load, fungal load, sensory evaluation, and techno-economic feasibility from processing to the storage of guava jelly. Fresh guava (Psidium guajava) jelly were prepared with 0.15%, 0.2%, and 0.25% pectin and with 1.1%, 1.15%, and 1.2% citric acid as a preservative. The bacterial count was determined through the Standard Plate Count (SPC) technique. The fungal analysis was done using a selective Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) medium. Lastly, the Inventory Theory’s model III was applied for the Techno-economic feasibility of guava jelly production. There was no yeast and mold growth detectable till day 90 of the storage period. However, the total bacterial load in jelly (acceptable limit =105cfu/ml) is satisfactory for consumption after 90 days of pectin and citric acid treatment. Furthermore, the production cost was approximately 65 Tk a bottle of 500g, which is considered economical compared to other local brands. Therefore, this formulation could be practiced for escalating the country’s development in the agriculture and food industries.
