Effect of Capsaicin-Coated PE Film on Microbiological and Physiological Properties of Rice during Storage
Three repellent coated PE film were development for avoiding storage insects and microorganisms. In this work, the microbiological and physiological properties of tetramethrin, cymperator and capsaicin-coated PE packing for rice grain were investigated. The results showed that the capsaicin-coated PE film was the optimal packaging material to preserve rice grain fresh. After three months storage of rice grain, capsaicin-coated PE inhibited the growth of bacteria and fungi than blank-coated PE, and had the similarly inhibiting roles than potent synthetic insecticide-coated PE packing. Especially, free fatty acid content increasing was decreased in storage of capsaicin-coated PE film, the flavor changes in slow.
