The jujube is mainly distributed in the subtropical and tropical regions of China and America (Wu et al., 2012). It is commonly used in folklore medicine to cure various diseases (Chen et al., 2015). Chinese jujube (Zizyphus jujuba Miller) is indigenous to China and has a history spanning over 4000 years (Li et al., 2009). In recent years, the yearly output of fresh Chinese jujube has increased significantly (Jin et al., 2015). According to the Xinjiang Statistical Yearbook 2015, there was a… Expand

Comparison of volatile compositions of 15 different varieties of Chinese jujube (Ziziphus jujuba Mill.)
Solid phase micro extraction method was used to extract the volatile compounds in fresh jujube, with the aid of GC–MS for further chemical separation and identification, and 33 volatile compounds were identified. Expand
Comparison of physical and chemical composition of three chinese jujube (Ziziphus jujuba Mill.) cultivars cultivated in four districts of Xinjiang region in China
Jujube fruits are mainly consumed freshly, and can also be processed into the jujube products, such as compotes, alcoholic beverage, jam, candied snack, sweetened tea syrup, cake, and bread. Expand
Characterization of Volatile Component Changes in Jujube Fruits during Cold Storage by Using Headspace-Gas Chromatography-Ion Mobility Spectrometry
The volatile components of jujube fruits can be readily identified via headspace-gas chromatography-ion mobility spectrometry (HS-GC-IMS), andJujuberuits can be classified at different periods based on the difference of volatile components. Expand
Chemical and physical pretreatments of fruits and vegetables: Effects on drying characteristics and quality attributes – a comprehensive review
Pretreatment is widely used before drying of agro-products to inactivate enzymes, enhance drying process and improve quality of dried products, and non-thermal technologies can be a better alternative to thermal blanching to overcome these drawbacks. Expand


Effect of pre-treatments on drying characteristics of Chinese jujube (Zizyphus jujuba Miller).
Chinese jujube is delicious and nourishing fruit. However, fresh Chinese jujube is liable to rot and drying is a necessary process. Traditional drying is a time-consuming task due to the thickExpand
Effect of nano-packing on preservation quality of Chinese jujube (Ziziphus jujuba Mill. var. inermis (Bunge) Rehd)
Abstract The effect of a novel nano-packing material on preservation quality of Chinese jujube ( Ziziphus jujuba Mill. var . inermis (Bunge) Rehd ) during room temperature storage was investigated.Expand
Drying kinetics and quality attributes of jujube (Zizyphus jujuba Miller) slices dried by hot-air and short- and medium-wave infrared radiation
Abstract As representatives of the traditional and innovative drying method, hot-air (HA) and short- and medium-wave infrared radiation (SMIR) drying were chosen to conduct comparative study,Expand
Changes in antioxidant activity during the ripening of jujube (Ziziphus mauritiana Lamk).
The presented results showed that the phenolic profiles of the fruits were influenced by their developmental stage, and during ripening, the antioxidant activity may be more impacted by the flavanols and condensed tannins. Expand
Physico-chemical, nutritional, and volatile composition and sensory profile of Spanish jujube (Ziziphus jujuba Mill.) fruits.
The results showed that Spanish jujube cultivars studied are a good source of vitamin C, and they have a low content of Na, which would allow breeders to select cultivars with higher levels of nutrients and also enable increasing dietary intake by consumers. Expand
Effect of ripening stage on physicochemical properties and antioxidant profiles of a promising table fruit ‘pear-jujube’ (Zizyphus jujuba Mill.)
Un-coloring jujubes could be used as potential natural antioxidants with abundant proanthocyanidins and half red ripening stage is a proper picking period for fresh-eaten as table fruit. Expand
Hot-air drying of whole fruit Chinese jujube (Zizyphus jujuba Miller): physicochemical properties of dried products
Summary Drying characteristics of whole fruit was studied as distinct from fruit slices. Taking Chinese jujube as an example, shrinkage, density, vitamin C, colour and rehydration of whole fruitExpand
Effect of drying methods on volatiles of Chinese ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe)
Abstract Fresh ginger slices were dehydrated by air drying (AD), microwave drying (MD), vacuum drying (VD), and freezing drying (FD). Volatiles were extracted from fresh ginger pulp and dried groundExpand
