Buckwheat microgreens have short shelf life which limits their commercial use. The effects of storage temperature, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), and wash conditions on quality and shelf life of buckwheat microgreens were assessed. Temperature significantly (P < 0.0001) affected package atmospheres and product quality. At the end of storage, microgreens stored at 1, 5 and 10 C had smaller microbial populations and less tissue electrolyte leakage than those stored at 15, and 20 C. Package… CONTINUE READING
