Influence of CA storage on carbohydrate changes in carrots

Acta Horticulturae (38): 339-344

Influence of CA storage on carbohydrate changes in carrots

Several late-maturing carrot cvs were stored at 1.5 deg C in 2.5-21.0% O2 in the absence of CO2, and their glucose, fructose and sucrose contents were determined after 56, 112 and 168 days. Changes in total carbohydrates were not related to the storage atmosphere.

This loss is mainly water, as the loss in solids is only about 1% for the 22 weeks of storage. The 2 main transformations in the carbohydrates...

Hansen, H.; Rumpf, G., 1974: Storage of carrots (variety 'Nantaise'): the influence of the storage atmosphere on flavour, decay and content of sucrose, glucose and fructose. In 3-years trials carrots were stored at 1 deg C either in air or in various controlled atmospheres for 3 or 6 months. The best results were obtained in 3% O2 and 3-6% CO2 and in these conditions the loss of sucrose was limited to about 20% after...

Boiling had the greatest effect and had an influ...
