Effect of Packaging Materials on the Shelf Life of Bamboo Shoots


Article Preview

The effect of different barrier properties packaging materials (PE, PET, PVC) on the shelf life of the shelled fresh bamboo shoots were studied. The effection of packaging materials were assessed by the sensory evaluation and the changes of their moisture content, ash content, total sugar content and protein content during storage time. The results showed that the shelled bamboo shoots in conditions at 10 °C with the packaging of PVC and PET have the better quality and longer shelf life than which with the packaging of PE and no packaging at the room temperature.
