Abstract:

In this study, zeolite-LDPE composite bags with or without infusion of antimicrobial compound (chlorine or silver) were employed as novel packaging materials. The influence of packaging innovation on physico-chemical parameters and shelf life of banana fruits under cold storage condition was investigated. Banana fruits first packed in antimicrobial compound synergized zeolite-LDPE composite bags and then placed in corrugated fiber board (CFB) box showed significantly lower physiological loss in weight, respiration rate, total soluble solids (TSS), disease score and higher titratable acidity, firmness and more shelf-life than the banana fruits packed in corrugated fiber board (CFB) box alone. Our results suggest that zeolite-LDPE composite bags synergized with antimicrobial compounds could maintained the postharvest quality and increase the shelf-life of banana fruits.
