The effect of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) with non-conventional gas mixture in combination with 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) treatment was tested during refrigerated storage on minimally processed (MP) kiwifruit slices for some physico-chemical parameters. Both 1-MCP (1 ppm) treated and untreated kiwifruit slices were packed in polypropylene bags and conditioned in five different MAs: A: Air; B: 90% N2, 5% O2, 5% CO2; C: 60% N2, 30% N2O, 5% O2, 5% CO2; D: 30% N2, 60% N2O, 5% O2, 5% CO2; E: 90% N2O, 5% O2, 5% CO2. MP kiwifruit were stored at 4°C for 12 days and soluble solids content, total acidity, CO2 production, O2 consumption, texture changes and surface colour were monitored. The combination of 1-MCP treatment and MAP with high N2O level resulted in increasing the shelf-life of the product, retarding the incidence of fruit tissue senescence.

Abstract

The effect of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) with non-conventional gas mixture in combination with 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) treatment was tested during refrigerated storage on minimally processed (MP) kiwifruit slices for some physico-chemical parameters. Both 1-MCP (1 ppm) treated and untreated kiwifruit slices were packed in polypropylene bags and conditioned in five different MAs: A: Air; B: 90% N2, 5% O2, 5% CO2; C: 60% N2, 30% N2O, 5% O2, 5% CO2; D: 30% N2, 60% N2O, 5% O2, 5% CO2; E: 90% N2O, 5% O2, 5% CO2. MP kiwifruit were stored at 4°C for 12 days and soluble solids content, total acidity, CO2 production, O2 consumption, texture changes and surface colour were monitored. The combination of 1-MCP treatment and MAP with high N2O level resulted in increasing the shelf-life of the product, retarding the incidence of fruit tissue senescence.
