The results showed that 1-MCP treatment and MAP in a N2 O enriched atmosphere had a positive combined effect on the inhibition of respiration and ethylene production of fresh-cut pineapple and on its softening delay, confirming previous findings about 1-MCP and N2 O preservative effects on fresh-cut fruit quality. This combined effect was not extended to the ripening index and colour maintenance, as MAP at 86.13 kPa of N2 O did not add any benefit to that of the 1-MCP treatment. From a microbiological point of view, N2 O MAP extended the shelf-life of the products of 3–4 d by increasing the lag phase of microbial growth.

Abstract

The results showed that 1-MCP treatment and MAP in a N2 O enriched atmosphere had a positive combined effect on the inhibition of respiration and ethylene production of fresh-cut pineapple and on its softening delay, confirming previous findings about 1-MCP and N2 O preservative effects on fresh-cut fruit quality. This combined effect was not extended to the ripening index and colour maintenance, as MAP at 86.13 kPa of N2 O did not add any benefit to that of the 1-MCP treatment. From a microbiological point of view, N2 O MAP extended the shelf-life of the products of 3–4 d by increasing the lag phase of microbial growth.
