Abstract
Abstract The effects of active modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) on the postharvest quality of cherry tomatoes stored at cold temperature (5 °C) and in bi-oriented polypropylene/low density polyethylene BOPP/LDPE bags were investigated. The atmosphere composition used in the packaging was 5% O 2  + 5% CO 2 (MAP), and synthetic air (control). The variables measured were weight loss, firmness, sugar, organic acids, color, lycopene, respiration rate, and ethylene biosynthesis over 25 days. The results showed that active MAP could extend the shelf life of cherry tomatoes to 25 days and the gas concentration could influence the postharvest quality of cherry tomatoes. MAP treatment decreased the respiration rate and ethylene production rate while reducing weight loss, lycopene biosynthesis, and the formation of red color. Through the use of MAP it was possible to maintain firmness and delay changes in sugar and organic acid contents. The combination of active MAP and low temperature treatments was effective with regard to delaying maturity during the storage period, and preserving the quality of cherry tomatoes.

Abstract Edible composite coatings based on hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), beeswax (BW), and food preservatives with antifungal properties, were evaluated on cherry tomatoes during cold storage. Food preservatives selected from previous research work included sodium propionate (SP), potassium carbonate (PC), ammonium phosphate (APh) and ammonium carbonate (AC). Cherry tomatoes artificially inoculated with Botrytis cinerea were coated and stored up to 15 d at 5 °C followed by 7 d of shelf-...

An experimental hyperbaric system was designed and built to explore the effect of hyperbaric treatment on the respiration rate (RR) and respiratory quotient (RQ) of tomato. It consists of five containers that can be individually pressurized from 1 to 9 atmabs. The respirometer was equipped with a flow meter, control valve, pressure transducer, CO2 and O2 gas analyzer, and type T thermocouples that are all connected to a data acquisition and control card. A software interface was programmed to al...

Abstract: Sugars, organic acids, and total phenolic content in fruit of 25 wild and cultivated berry species were identified and quantified with high-performance liquid chromatograph. The composition of sugars, organic acids, and total phenolic compounds in various species of Vaccinium, Rubus, Ribes, and Fragaria genus was evaluated. Additonally, total phenolics of less known berry species of the Morus, Amelanchier, Sorbus, Sambucus, Rosa, Lycium, Actinidia, and Aronia genus were determined in w...

Purpose – The aim of this research is to determine the effects of pre‐harvest harpin (H) and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) on the storage and fruit quality of cherry tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cvs. “Alona” and “Cluster”).Design/methodology/approach – H was used at 50 g 100 l‐1 concentration. First application was done on the seedlings in 3‐4 leaf stages and the other four applications were repeated at 20‐day intervals. Then, treated and untreated fruits were stored in plastic fi...

Sink and source activity in two tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) genotypes that vary in fruit Brix were investigated to identify differences that potentially underscore this trait. Solara (Brix 9%) accumulated almost twice the glucose, fructose, and sucrose in ripe fruit and had a higher horticultural yield (25% greater) compared to Moneymaker (Brix 5%). 14C-glucose feeding suggested large disparities in sucrose metabolism in ripe fruit between genotypes. Biochemical pathways in the leaf adjacen...

Titratable acidity and pH are two interrelated concepts in food analysis that deal with acidity. Each of these quantities is analytically determined in separate ways and each provides its own particular insights on food quality. For example, while pH is important to assess the ability of a microorganism to grow in a specific food, titratable acidity is a better predictor than pH of how organic acids in the food impact flavor. Unlike strong acids that are fully dissociated, food acids are only pa...

Starch is transiently accumulated in tomato fruit with near complete degradation achieved by maturity. Surprisingly, 14C-pulse-chase analyses indicated that the rate of starch degradation was highest in immature fruit [10 days post anthesis (DPA)] when maximal synthesis occurs, but was almost undetectable at 45 DPA when there is net breakdown of starch. Further analysis of starch accumulation, rate of synthesis, particle size analysis, and confocal laser scanning microscopy of starch granules fr...

BACKGROUND: The feasibility of using modified atmosphere packaging (5 kPa O2 + 5 kPa CO2) to maintain the antioxidant properties of fresh-cut tomatoes during shelf-life was assessed through storage at different temperatures (5, 10, 15 and 20 °C). Health-related compounds, antioxidant capacity, microbiological counts, physicochemical parameters and in-package atmosphere of tomato slices were determined. RESULTS: Initial lycopene, vitamin C and phenolic contents and physicochemical parameters of t...

Abstract To evaluate the feasibility of acidified sodium benzoate (NaB) as alternative washing solutions of fresh produce, the survival of inoculated pathogens, the background molds and yeasts counts, and quality parameters were compared during 4 and 21 °C storage of cherry tomatoes washed with 3000 ppm NaB at pH 2.0, 200 ppm free chlorine at pH 6.5, water adjusted to pH 2.0, and distilled water. The acidified NaB solution was the most effective in reducing the population of Escherichia coli O15...

Abstract The quality of fresh and fresh-cut (FC) fruit can be preserved by creating an optimal atmospheric condition around the product. Extensive research has been reported on the application and effects of initial gas modification on fruit quality. Active modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) is a commonly applied postharvest technology to maintain quality and extend shelf life of fresh fruit; however, the response of individual fruit types to the exposed atmosphere widely varies depending on ga...

Abstract Guavas are tropical climacteric fruit with a short postharvest shelf life at room temperature. This study aims to extend the shelf life of red guavas ‘Pedro Sato’ using edible coatings of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) and beeswax (BW) at concentrations of 10%, 20%, and 40% (dry basis). Coated and uncoated guavas were stored for 8 days at 21 °C and assessed every 2 days. The HPMC + BW produced a modified atmosphere around the fruit, delaying ripening process. The coatings reduced ...
The effects of passive modified-atmosphere packaging (passive-MAP) on the postharvest quality of de-hulled fresh pistachios (Pistacia vera L. cv. Kerman) stored at cold temperature (0 ± 0.5 °C) and 90?± 1% relative humidity was investigated with fruits under ambient air condition as the control treatment. The fruit quality parameters measured included kernel firmness, color values (L*, a*, b*, h°, and C*), weight loss, fungal decay and marketability, ethylene production, respiration rate, and se...

Abstract Edible coatings have potential to reduce postharvest losses of fruit such as tomato. In this study, the effects of nanolaminate coatings incorporated with extracts of Flourensia cernua , an endemic plant of the arid and semi-arid regions of Mexico, has been investigated. Ethanol extracts of F. cernua (FcE) were prepared and incorporated into polyelectrolyte solutions of alginate and chitosan. The nanolaminates were characterized by determining the zeta potential, contact angle and water...

Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) technology has been commercially viable since the 1970s. Currently, MAP is extensively used worldwide to preserve the quality and extend the shelf-life of whole fresh fruits and vegetables, but is also increasingly used to extend the shelf-life of minimally processed fresh fruit and vegetables. This review discusses new processes and technologies that can be used to improve quality preservation and consumer acceptability of minimally processed produce where hi...
