Cultivar and Frozen Storage Effects on Muskmelon ( Cucurnis melo ) Colour , Texture and Cell Wall Polysaccharide Composition

  title={Cultivar and Frozen Storage Effects on Muskmelon ( Cucurnis melo ) Colour , Texture and Cell Wall Polysaccharide Composition},
  author={Valencius Simandjuntak and Diane and Barrettb and Ronald E. Wrolstad},
Changes in composition, drip loss and colour of Cantaloupe and Honey Dew melons were determined in fresh and frozen melons stored for 5 and 10 months at -23°C. Relationships between drip loss, CWP fractions and total CWP sugar composition were determined. During frozen storage, there were significant decreases (P < 0.05) in total CWP sugars in relation to increased storage time. The decrease in total sugars was more dramatic during the 0-5 month period than during the 5-10 month period of… CONTINUE READING
