Shrimp processing industries produce one third of its waste from head and shell of the shrimps. Objective of this research is to utilize the shrimp head for the development of a value added product for better utilization of the protein rich resource and to minimize the environmental pollution. The fine shrimp head powder was used for making protein rich value added shrimp chutney powder with the addition other ingredients and it had a protein content of 23.2%. The shelf life assessment of the chutney powder results revealed that the product was good until the end of assessment period (3 months) and it is safe for human consumption. Present study reports shows that it is possible to manufacture protein rich shrimp chutney powder using unutilized shrimp head wasted from processing centers. These head waste can be utilized by local fisher women for the preparation of value added products for their economic empowerment.
