Effect of Modified Atmosphere Packaging on Nutritional Value and Quality of Honey Pomelo
The effects of MA packaging on nutritional value and quality of honey pomelo have been investigated during storage at 8 . Results show that 25μm-thick PE films maintained more suitable headspace gas concentrations for preservation of pomelo than 50μm-thick PE films and microperforated 25μm-thick PE films (control). The 25μm -thick PE films have the highest value on quality parameters, which were 12.2%, 0.9%, 47.1mg/100g and 44.8mg/100g for total soluble solid, titratable acidity, vitamin C and total phenolic content after 150 days of storage, respectively. This study suggests that MA packaging with 25μm-thick PE films show the best effects in maintaining the quality of honey pomelo during storage at 8 .
