The respiration rates of fresh Bengal gram kernels as a function of O2 and CO2¬ concentration at 300 C in closed system is studied on the basis of enzyme kinetics. Parameters of three types of Michaelis-Menten equation based on type of inhibition were considered. GraphPad PRISM software was used to find parameters of respiration rate of fresh Bengal gram kernels inform of Michaelis-Menten. The competitive type of inhibition was found as the best type for respiration rate of fresh Bengal gram kernels. Respiration rate and gas exchange through the package material are the processes involved in creating a modified atmosphere inside a package that extends shelf life of fresh Bengal gram kernels.

Keywords: Respiration rate, Enzyme kinetics, Michaelis-Menten, Fresh Bengal gram kernels
