Over two subsequent seasons, emission of volatile compounds, consumer acceptability and quality parameters were analyzed in “Fuji” apples. In both seasons, apples were harvested at the same maturity stage and stored for 19 or 30 weeks at 1C and 92% relative humidity under an ultralow oxygen (ULO) atmosphere (1% O2 + 1% CO2) or under an ULO atmosphere followed by different periods (2 or 4 weeks) in cold air. The results revealed, for both seasons, that 4 weeks of cold air storage after ULO storage helped to increase the emission of some volatile compounds for both storage period, including characteristic volatile compounds for the variety, and did not have a negative effect on quality parameters. Additionally, the consumer acceptability was superior for those fruits.

Comparison of volatile profile and sensory analysis of 'Golden Reinders' apples after the application of a cold air period after ultralow oxygen (ULO) storage Altisent Rosell, Rosa; Graell i Sarle, Jordi; Lara Ayala, Isabel; López Fructuoso, Mª Luisa; Echeverría Cortada, Gemma (American Chemical Society, 2011)All efforts to improve fruit quality are rewarded when consumers are satisfied after tasting the fruit. Apples are often stored under controlled atmosphere conditions to preserve them over time, but this frequently results ...
Regeneration of volatile compounds in Fuji apples following ultra low oxygen atmosphere storage and its effect on sensory acceptability Altisent Rosell, Rosa; Graell i Sarle, Jordi; Lara Ayala, Isabel; López Fructuoso, Mª Luisa; Echeverría Cortada, Gemma (American Chemical Society, 2008)The aim of this work was to assess whether extra time spent under AIR conditions after storage in an ultra low oxygen (ULO) atmosphere could allow the regeneration of volatile compound emission without negatively affecting ...
