Las normas del Codex para frutas y hortalizas frescas juntas con textos afines como el Código de Prácticas de Higiene para las Frutas y Hortalizas Frescas son publicadas en formato compacto para permitir su uso y amplio conocimiento por parte de los gobiernos, las autoridades de reglamentación, las industrias de alimentos y minoristas, y los consumidores. Esta primera edición incluye los textos adoptados por la Comisión del Codex Alimentarius hasta el 2007.
Non-destructive firmness sensors have recently become available for packers and fruit handlers although they demand more information on their performance and reliability. A commercial sensor based on low mass impact has been tested on kiwifruit. Correlation between the firmness index given by the device and Magness-Taylor force was low (r2 = 0.594). Classifications modeled with discriminant analysis showed that it is feasible to sort samples into two firmness groups (96 to 91%), but classification into three classes yields lower scores.
Mealiness is known as an important internal quality attribute of fruits/vegetables, which has significant influence on consumer purchasing decisions. Mealiness has been a topic of research interest over the past several decades. A number of destructive and nondestructive techniques are introduced for mealiness detection. Nondestructive methods are more interesting because they are rapid, noninvasive, and suitable for real-time purposes.
