Abstract:Vacuum pre-cooling technology has potential to be used in post-harvest storage of vegetables by removing field heat rapidly. In the current study, the efficiencies of different cooling methods (vacuum cooling, cooling water and cold room) and the quality properties of broccolis with pre-cooling treatments were compared. The results indicated that vacuum cooling treatment was the most effective method to extend the shelf life of post-harvest broccolis through the investigation of cooling rate, respiration rate,…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
