The study was carried out with the aim of establishing the effects of controlled atmosphere at low carbon dioxide levels. Diseases, disorders, weight loss and senescence were evaluated. Furthermore, odour and flavour were tested on cooked cauliflower. The use of 1, 4, 8% oxygen and 1% carbon dioxide concentrations did not extend the storage life of cauliflower in controlled atmosphere in comparison to the control under cold storage in polyethylene film. In fact, the onset of Alternaria brassicae limits storage life. The impossibility of preventing infection, even at low oxygen levels is thus demonstrated.
