Assessment of Quality of Pears Stored in Laminated Modified Atmosphere Packages

S. Mangaraj, M.J. Sadawarti and S. Prasad    

Abstract: Various aspects of modified atmosphere packaging for storage of pears in perm-selective polymeric film packages were investigated. The dynamics of respiration-permeation interaction was analyzed with a view to facilitate self establishment of dynamic equilibrium of gaseous composition within the package and external atmospheres at a desired storage condition. By combining different polymeric films, three types of laminated modified atmosphere packages (LF1, LF2, and LF3) were developed. The modified atmosphere packaged pears were found to have retained freshness and quality for a longer period of time. The shelf life of MA packaged pears could be extended approximately 0.75 to 1.5 times in comparison to unpacked pears. The performance of package type LF1 was found to be the best, whereas LF2 was found to be the second best.
