Relationships between volatile production, fruit quality, and sensory evaluation in granny smith apples stored in different controlled-atmosphere treatments by means of multivariate analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Aroma compounds, quality parameters, and sensory evaluation of Granny Smith apples were analyzed after 3, 5, and 7 months of cold storage in three controlled-atmosphere (CA) treatments, in which oxygen and carbon dioxide were held at 1, 2, and 3%. During poststorage ripening, the apples were kept at 20 °C for 1, 5, and 10 days before analytical measurements were made. The highest volatile emission was obtained after 5 months of storage in all CA treatments, reaching its highest value when a low-oxygen CA (LO) was used. Ultralow-oxygen CA (ULO) showed the highest ability to maintain apple firmness. The correlation among analytical and sensory parameters suggests that ethyl 2-methylbutyrate, 1-butanol, pentyl acetate, and tert-butyl propionate are the aroma compounds with the highest influence in the sensorial score. Concerning CA treatments, LO and ULO appear to be very valuable technologies for maintaining the sensorial quality even after 7 months of storage.

T.; Graell i Sarle, Jordi; López Fructuoso, Mª Luisa (Wiley, 2003)Aroma compounds, quality parameters and sensory characteristics of Fuji apples were analysed after 3, 5 and 7months of storage at 1 ◦C in normal air (AIR; 210 l m−3 O2/0.3 l m−3 CO2) and in controlled atmospheres with ...
Volatile ester-synthesising capacity in 'Tardibelle' peach fruit in response to controlled atmosphere and 1-MCP treatment Ortiz Catalán, Abel; Graell i Sarle, Jordi; López Fructuoso, Mª Luisa; Echeverría Cortada, Gemma; Lara Ayala, Isabel (Elsevier, 2010)Peach fruit is highly perishable, which drastically restricts storage potential and marketing possibilities. Although aroma is a very important attribute for sensory quality of peach, post-harvest procedures, aimed at ...
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 ...
