Author(s) : ESPINOSA J.

Summary

THE AUTHORS PRESENT THE RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTS ON THE EFFECTS OF BLANCHING, VACUUM-PACKING AND TEMPERATURE, ON THE QUALITY OF FROZEN CARROTS. THE STORAGE LIFE WITHOUT BLANCHING OF CARROTS, BOTH PACKED AT ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE AND VACUUM-PACKED, IS OF THE ORDER OF TEN WEEKS, WITH ACCEPTABLE QUALITY ; FOR THE BLANCHED CARROTS, THE STORAGE LIFE IS EXTENDED TO 17 WEEKS. AFTER 306 DAYS, THE FOLLOWING LOTS SHOW A QUALITY HIGHER THAN THAT CONSIDERED TO BE ACCEPTABLE: NON-BLANCHED CARROTS, VACUUM PACKED AND STORED AT 261 K (-12 DEG C), CARROTS BOTH BLANCHED AND NON-BLANCHED, PACKED AT ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE AND VACUUM-PACKED, AND STORED AT 255 AND 249 K (-18 AND -24DEG C).
