Type de monographie : Ouvrage


The use of controlled atmospheric conditions in transportation and storage of fresh fruit and vegetables, as a way of reducing the use of chemical preservatives and pesticides, has great potential for the reduction of postharvest losses and the maintenance of nutritive value and organoleptic characteristics, its application is likely to have as great an impact as the introduction of refrigeration technology a century ago. The author reviews the large amount of research on controlled atmosphere storage and traces the history of the technique and the range of conditions currently in use for different fruit and vegetables, and their effect on flavour, quality and physiology. The influence of pests and diseases, environmental factors such as mixtures of gases, and packaging as well as recommended controlled atmosphere conditions for a wide range of crops are described.
