Preservation of African star apple fruits (Chrysophyllum albidum) by osmotic dehydration

Preservation of African star apple fruits (Chrysophyllum albidum) by osmotic dehydration

Tropical Science 30(3): 249-253

Various treatments, including freezing, antimicrobial treatment, osmotic dehydration (with and without antimicrobial pretreatment) and cold storage, were evaluated as means of preserving mature, ripe Chrysophyllum albidum fruits for jam manufacture. Cold storage (5 degrees C) of whole fresh fruits resulted in chilling injury and decay after 3 weeks.
