The effects of an edible coating, i.e. Semperfresh(TM) and cold storage on shelf-life and duality of cherries there studied. Taro groups of cherries (Prunus avium) were coated just after harvest with 10 and 20 g/L Semperfresh(TM) fruit coating which is composed of sucrose esters of fatty acids, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose and mono-diglycerides of fatty-acids. Half of the cherries from each of the above groups was stored at ambient temperature (similar to30+/-3degreesC) and at 40-50% relative humidity, the outer half of the cherries was stored at cold storage 0degreesC) and at 95-98% relative humidity. Each group was analysed for the following quality parameters: firmness; weight loss, titratable acidity, soluble solid content, sugar content, ascorbic acid content, and external color. It was demonstrated that Semperfresh(TM) was elective to reduce the weight loss and increase firmness, ascorbic acid content, titratable acidity and skin color of cherries during storage tinge. However, soluble solid content and sugar content were not affected by coating. The results of this study, suggest that Semperfresh(TM) increased the shelf-life of the cherries by 21% at 30 +/- 3 degreesC and by 26% at 0degreesC without perceptible losses in quality.

Effects of an edible coating, fungicide and cold storage on microbial spoilage of cherries
Yaman, O; Bayındırlı, Levent A. (2001-01-01)
The effects of an edible coating, i.e., Semperfresh (TM), fungicide, i.e., Imazalil, and cold storage on microbial spoilage of cherries were studied. Two group of cherries (Prunus avium) were coated just after harvest with 1% and 2% Semperfresh (TM) fruit coating. Two other group of cherries were treated with 75 ppm and 150 ppm concentrations of Imazalil and then coated with a 1% concentration of Semperfresh (TM) fruit coating. Half of the cherries from each of the above groups was stored at ambient tempera...
EFFECTS OF SEMPERFRESH AND JONFRESH FRUIT COATINGS ON POSTSTORAGE QUALITY OF SATSUMA MANDARINS
BAYINDIRLI, L; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; KAMADAN, K (Wiley, 1995-11-01)
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 ...
EFFECTS OF SUCROSE POLYESTER COATING ON FRUIT-QUALITY OF APRICOTS (PRUNUS-ARMENAICA (L))
Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Wiley, 1995-04-01)
Mature apricots were coated with different concentrations of a mixture containing sucrose polyesters (Semperfresh(TM) fruit coating) to determine the effect of that coating on shelf-life, post-storage life and quality of apricots. Respiration rates, weight loss, colour change, variations in soluble solids, ascorbic acid content, titratable acidity and pH of apricots were effectively reduced by both the 10 g litre(-1) and 15 g litre(-1) concentrations during ambient storage. After 10 days of cold storage bot...
Effects of different batter formulations on the quality of deep-fat-fried carrot slices
Akdeniz, N; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-07-01)
The effects of batter coating containing pregelatinized tapioca starch or maltodextrin at different concentrations (1, 3 or 5%) on product quality of deep-fat-fried carrot slices were evaluated. Coated slices were fried for 2, 3 and 4 min at 170 degrees C. Coating pickup of batter formulations and moisture and oil contents, porosity, texture and colour of fried slices were determined. Batter without pregelatinized starch or maltodextrin addition was used as the control. Addition of 5% pregelatinized tapioca...
Retention of physical quality of bananas by hemicellulose coating
Yilmaz Celebioglu, Hilal; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz (2013-01-01)
In order to maintain color and texture, plant-origin edible coatings are advantageous to foodstuffs as an air and moisture barrier. In this study, hemicelluloses extracted from corn peels were used as the coating material on bananas stored at 4 °C. At the end of storage, no fungal decay was detected on coated bananas, whereas 20% of uncoated bananas (control) were infected. Samples coated with 1, 1.5 and 2% hemicellulose (HC) lost 3.6, 3.3 and 3.1 of their total weight, respectively, whereas the control gro...
