Control of Pathogenic and Spoilage Microorganisms in Fresh-cut Fruits and Fruit Juices by Traditional and Alternative Natural Antimicrobials

Traditional antimicrobials have been extensively used for many years. However, consumers are currently demanding wholesome, fresh-like, and safe foods without addition of chemically synthesized preservatives. The application of novel natural antimicrobials to assure safety of fresh-cut fruits and...

Optimization of alginate and gellan-based edible coating formulations for fresh-cut pineapples

The effects of alginate-based [sodium alginate, 0-2% (w/v), glycerol, 0-2% (w/v) and sunflower oil 0.025% (w/v)] and gellan-based [gellan, 0-1% (w/v), glycerol, 0-1% (w/v) and sunflower oil 0.025% (w/v)] edible coatings on fresh-cut pineapple were evaluated by response surface methodology (RSM)....

Controlled atmosphere storage of carrot slices, sticks and shreds

The physiology and quality of carrot (Daucus carota L.) slices, sticks, and shreds stored in air or controlled atmosphere (CA) of 0.5% O2 and 10% CO2 at 0, 5, and 10°C were monitored. The respiration of all 3 types of cut tissue was reduced when stored in CA and the reduction was greater with...

Calcium delays senescence-related membrane lipid changes and increases net synthesis of membrane lipid components in shredded carrots

The influence of Ca2+ on firmness and membrane lipid structural components was evaluated during storage of shredded (wound-stressed) carrot tissues (Daucus carota L. ‘Caropak’). During 10 days of storage at 10°C and 95% RH, Ca2+ treatment (applied as 1% w/v CaCl2 upon shredding)...
