Effect of processing on quality and shelf life of leafy vegetables
There is a need to sustain quality of ready-to-eat (RTE) leafy vegetables in order to improve shelf life of the products during postharvest storage. The main objective of this thesis was toExpand
Development of packaging systems to maximize quality retention and increase shelf life of Pleurotus mushrooms
Development of packaging systems to maximize quality retention and increase shelf life of Pleurotus mushrooms Fresh horticultural commodities are excellent sources of vitamins, fiber and minerals forExpand
EFFECT OF COMPOSITE EDIBLE COATINGS AND ABIOTIC STRESS ON POST HARVEST QUALITY OF FRUITS
The post-harvest quality of perishable produce changes rapidly due to the accelerated rate of respiration, transpiration and ripening. The objective of this study was to determine the effect ofExpand
EFFECTS OF DISINFECTANTS AND ANTI-BROWNING AGENTS ON THE SHELF-LIFE OF CAULIFLOWER FLORETS
EFFECTS OF DISINFECTANTS AND ANTI-BROWNING AGENTS ON THE SHELF-LIFE OF CAULIFLOWER FLORETS Joel David Harris Currently, when cauliflower florets are packed in a MA package, they can last 8 to 10 daysExpand
INFLUENCE OF THE POSTHARVEST ENVIRONMENT ON THE STORAGE POTENTIAL AND PROPAGATION PERFORMANCE OF UNROOTED CUTTINGS OF HERBACEOUS ORNAMENTALS
TLDR
The effect of postharvest temperatures on the respiration rates of unrooted shoot-tip cuttings of four herbaceous ornamental species varied amongst species; however, the trends over time and the responses to temperature were similar. Expand
Modified Atmosphere Packaging of Fruits and Vegetables for Extending Shelf-Life: A Review
Fresh fruits and vegetables being living require oxygen (O2) for their metabolic processes especially for respiration. Modified-atmosphere packaging (MAP) of fresh produce refers to the technique ofExpand
