Research on Preservation of Synsepalum Dulcificum by Coatings

Abstract:

Article Preview

The preservation of Synsepalum dulcificum has been researched by using chitosan coating as the antistaling agent at room temperature. The physicochemical indexes, such as rot rate, weight loss ratio, scavenging capability of DPPH• radical, total acidity and sensory quality, were assayed during the process of storage. The optimum formulation of the fresh-keeping agent was as follows: 1.5% chitosan, 1% ascorbic acid, 0.1% Tween-80 and 1.0% glycerol. The results showed that the coating films could effectively decrease the loss of fruit nutrition and weight-loss ratio, inhibited the respiration and delayed the senescent course during storage.
