Abstract:
In this study, zeolite-LDPE composite bags with or without infusion of antimicrobial compound (chlorine or silver) were employed as novel packaging materials. The influence of packaging innovation on bio-chemical parameters of sapota (Manilkara achras, Family: Sapotaceae) fruits under cold storage condition was investigated. Sapota fruits first packed in antimicrobial compound synergized zeolite-LDPE composite bags and then placed in corrugated fiber board (CFB) box showed significantly lower respiration rate, total soluble solids (TSS) and higher titratable acidity and more shelf-life than the sapota fruits packed in corrugated fiber board (CFB) box alone. Our results suggest that zeolite-LDPE composite bags synergized with antimicrobial compounds could maintained the postharvest quality and increase the shelf-life of sapota fruits.
