OZONE TECHNOLOGY FOR SHELF LIFE EXTENSION OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

L.J. Skog, C.L. Chu
Ozone is a strong oxidizer that has been recommended by several investigators (Liew and Prange, 1994; Sarig et al., 1996) for reducing produce decay and extending the storage period. Others (Perez et al., 1999), however, have reported that it has little or no effect on fruit decay. Ozone cannot control apple scald disorder, but the development of scald was reduced.

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of using ozone in cold storage rooms to reduce the ethylene level in air and to extend the storage life of fruits and vegetables.
