This paper highlights the significance of cascade single layer models for predicting the shelf life of processed cheese stored at 7-8 o C. Mean square error, root mean square error, coefficient of determination and nash - sutcliffo coefficient were used for testing the prediction ability of the developed models. The developed cascade model with a combination of 5-->8-->1 showed excellent agreement between the actual and the predicted values, suggesting that single layer cascade models are efficient in predicting the shelf life of processed cheese.
