Use of plastic films in the storage of carrots


Acta Horticulturae (38): 345-350
Use of plastic films in the storage of carrots
One-kg samples of cleaned and dried carrots were placed in polyethylene bags which were then sealed, or in perforated bags (controls) and stored at 1 deg C. In the sealed bags the atmosphere comprised 17% O2 and 2.5-3.0% CO2 after 3 days and susbsequently remained stable. Weight loss was negligible and the carrots retained their good appearance for at least 7 months. The total sugar content was unchanged after 18 weeks, whereas in air it declined markedly.
