Influence of storage conditions and pre-storage treatments on weight loss, sprouting and content of reducing sugars in potatoes



Influence of storage conditions and pre-storage treatments on weight loss, sprouting and content of reducing sugars in potatoes



Meldinger fra Norges Landbrukshoegskole 52(6): 19



In trials in 1968-9 with potatoes Prestkvern and in 1968-70 with Kerrs Pink, tuber samples were stored in plastic baskets at 3, 6 or 9 deg C at 70 or 90% r.h. after (a) no pre-treatment, (b) storage for 2-3 weeks at 11-13 deg and 80-90% r.h., (c) washing and drying, or (d) heat treatment for 2 h at 45 deg. Weight loss was high during the first weeks after harvesting and was much higher in dry air than in moist air. In dry air (b) gave lower weight losses than (a).
