Hypobaric storage of vegetables

, : Hypobaric storage of vegetables. Acta Horticulturae (38): 23-32

Low pressure storage at 1/10 atm (LPS) extended the storage life of tomatoes to 7 weeks, compared with 3-4 weeks in cold storage. Similar results were obtained with cucumbers and sweet peppers. With parsley LPS extended the storage life from 5 to 8 weeks without appreciable losses in protein, ascorbic acid or chlorophyll contents.

Carrots, tomatoes and broccoli were enclosed in desiccators and the air was replaced once every 24h. CO2 output was greater and quality was poorer in a desiccator stored at room temperature than in one stored at about 4 deg C.
