Mandarins were coated with SemperSresh(TM) and Jonfresh(TM) edible coatings. The weight gain of mandarins after application of Jonfresh and Semperfresh coatings was 0.8% and 0.6% respectively. Weight loss, respiration rate, ascorbic acid, soluble solids (brix) and acidity changes of coated mandarins were compared with uncoated mandarins during storage at 20C and 40% RH for 4 weeks. Semperfresh(TM) and Jonfresh(TM) coatings delayed the ripening of mandarins. Both of the coatings were effective to reduce the change of ascorbic acid, soluble solids, titratable acidity and respiration rate. But Jonfresh(TM) was determined to be most efficient coating for reduction of weight loss.
