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.

The localization and composition of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the trabecular meshwork beams (TM), juxtacanalicular zone (JCZ) and sclera adjacent to the trabecular meshwork were analysed in normal Beagles and Beagles with inherited glaucoma in...

A new antispasmodic preparation which has a direct musculotropic effect was studied. Mebeverine results in a diminution of exaggerated colonic motility as tested by the measurement of intraluminal pressures in the sigmoid colon in man. In a double...
