PROCESSING OF FRUITS & VEGETABLES USING CARBON DI-OXIDE

 

Controlled Atmosphere Storage (CA)

Pre-cooling is being done by washing the horticultural produce in the running water with a view to reduce the atmospheric heat.

The fresh horticultural produce consumes oxygen for respiration and releases carbon dioxide and ethylene. The ethylene further enhances ripening. Since reducing oxygen and increasing carbon dioxide can increase the shelf life, we have decided to combine refrigeration to reduce respiration and delays yellowing and quality changes. Since, the trials are to be carried only in the open spaces of the marketing yard, it was decided to conduct trials with dry ice to start with.

Individual Quick Freezing (IQF) of fruits & vegetable is catching on in India now targetting the Processed Food Industry and Export market. Using Liquid Co2 for IQF requirement provides better quality of products and faster freezing time and thus offering better value addition.
