Controlled Atmosphere Storage of Fruits and Vegetables


The transportation and storage of fresh fruits and vegetables is an international operation where technology must be used to ensure that produce reaches the consumer in the best possible condition. The use of controlled atmosphere storage has great potential to reduce the postharvest use of chemicals, maintain nutritional quality and organoleptic characteristics and reduce physical losses.

This revised edition incorporates the latest research to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of controlled and modified atmosphere storage. Chapters review the history of the technique, the range of conditions and technologies currently in use for different produce and their effect on flavour, quality and physiology. In addition, the influence of pests and diseases, environmental factors and packaging and aspects of controlled atmosphere transport are considered in detail as well as a synthesis of recommendations for a wide range of crops.
