Abstract:

The present study on pomegranate aril coating with Aloe vera gel at different concentrations was carried out at the Postharvest Technology Laboratory, College of Horticulture, Venkataramannagudem, West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh during the year 2015-16. The experiment was laid out in a completely randomized design with three replications with the main objective of reducing the browning of arils by application of Aloe vera gel. Significant differences were observed among the edible Aloe vera coating treatments with regard to many of the physiological and biochemical activities of arils. The arils treated with Aloe vera gel at 30% concentration recorded significantly lowest total sugars content during the early phase of storage, whereas at later phase of storage recorded significantly highest total sugars content (14.413 and 13.692% respectively on day 12 and 16) in comparison with other concentrations. The trend with titrable acidity was also the same with Aloe vera gel at 30% concentration. Arils treated with Aloe vera gel at 30% concentration recorded significantly highest content of ascorbic acid, total anthocyanins and antioxidant activity throughout the storage period.
