Use of plastic films in the storage of carrots

, : Use of plastic films in the storage of carrots. Acta Horticulturae (38): 345-350

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.

For decades, evolutionary biologists and anthropologists have puzzled over the negative relationship that exists between wealth and fertility in humans. Particularly mystifying have been that (1) humans do not appear to translate their reproductiv...
