Paper Title:
Experimental Study on Applying Bentonite for Mango Storage
  Abstract

In this paper, bentonite was applied in mango preservation, and the effects of various treatments methods on fresh-cut mango were studied.The results indicated that mangoes without any treatment easily rotted. The quality indexes of mango such as the weight loss rate, the disease rate and the turning yellow rate tend to increase while the titratable acidity and vitamin C content of mango lose largely. However, the weight loss rate, the disease rate and the turning yellow rate of mango may be reduced when mango were packed in seal bags together with bentonite. Purified bentonite is better than raw bentonite when applied in keeping mango fresh. Burying mango in mass purified bentonite was advisable for mango preservation.
