Piga, Antonio <1965- > and D'Aquino, Salvatore and Agabbio, Mario Carlo Salvatore and Piergiovanni, Luciano (1997) Poliethylene film packaging affects quality of "Lisbon" lemons during long-term storage. Italian Journal of Food Science, Vol. 9 (1), p. 25-35. ISSN 1120-1770. Article.
"Lisbon" lemons were divided into groups that were coated, packaged in polyethylene bags with or without a pouch containing KOH, or left unpackaged and uncoated; fruits were then stored at 8°C up to 15 weeks. Packaging significantly reduced weight loss and fruit mantained a fresh appearance. Fruits in bags without KOH showed the highest incidence of decay. In fact, KOH moisture-absorbing capability significantly decreased rots during 5 weeks of storage plus one week of shelf-life, if compared to packaged fruits without KOH. No signs of CI were detected in any treatment. Packaged fruits without KOH revealed the highest concentration of ethanol and acetaldehyde in the juice.
