Abstract:

The research was carried out to study the effect of sulphur dioxide pads on shelf life of strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) under ambient condition (24 ± 260C) with six treatments. SO2 pads containing different mixtures of KMS and citric acid had no significant effect on the shelf life of strawberry. All the treatments, control as well as sulphur dioxide pads containing varied levels of SO2 between 400 ppm and 2000 ppm were found on par with one other for shelf life of strawberry fruits under ambient condition. Thus the use of SO2 pads had not prolonged shelf life of strawberry fruits and spoilage occurred in all the treated and controlled fruits within 4 days of storage.


Keywords: Ambient condition, KMS, SO2 releasing pad, Shelf life and Strawberries.
