Eco-friendly technology for postharvest produce quality by Mohammed Wasim Siddiqui

By Mohammed Wasim Siddiqui

Eco-Friendly know-how for Postharvest Produce Quality offers the scope of rising green applied sciences to keep up the postharvest caliber of clean produce when it comes to safeguard and meals. The booklet covers an research of the choice and standard methodologies stating the numerous virtue and boundaries of every procedure. It presents a customary reference paintings for the clean produce in postharvest administration to increase shelf existence via making sure defense first after which dietary or sensory caliber retention.

Fruits and greens are a major section of the nutrients offer chain and are relied on globally for reliable healthiness and nutrients. the provision of fine foodstuff, even if, tremendously depends upon stable postharvest dealing with practices. even supposing great examine has been conducted to maintain the standard of clean horticultural produce, extra research―especially on safety―is nonetheless required. This e-book offers foundational insights into present practices yielding most sensible effects for produce handling.

  • Includes acceptable methods, applied sciences, and keep an eye on parameters essential to in achieving shelf-life extension with no compromising produce quality
  • Presents winning meals security tools among the time produce is harvested to consumption
  • Includes the most recent info on upkeep applied sciences utilizing novel chemical tools, lively packaging, and tracking the impact of environmental stresses on caliber and shelf lifetime of agricultural produce

Chapter 1 New insights on postharvest ecophysiology of fresh horticultural crops 9 binding of Ca2+ to the plasma membrane, inhibits influx while increasing efflux of Ca2+, and depletes the internal stores of Ca2+ from endomembranes (Rengel, 1992). 2 Water Stress The effect of water supply during fruit growth is an important factor for postharvest texture. Drought conditions affect both architecture and biology of cell walls. , 2008). Furthermore, drought stress, likewise osmotic or salt stress, causes a loosening of cell wall polysaccharides to maintain the possibility for cell expansion.

For a review on the genetics and biochemistry of these pigments refer to Grotewold (2006). Intensity of the anthocyaninic coloration of fruits during maturation is strongly influenced by environmental conditions. , 2012). 1 Light Stress Shading of harvested parts of horticultural plants has pronounced effects on their color development. For instance, immediately postharvest red color development is also controlled by effects of light on anthocyanin formation. , 1977). High amplitudes of temperatures between day and night during maturation accompanied by elevated light intensities result in fruits with more anthocyanin coloration.
