Comparative Effects of Gamma Irradiation and Methyl Bromide Fumigation on Disinfestation and Physicochemical Quality of Acorn
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 199~206
Comparative effects of gamma irradiation and methyl bromide (MBr) fumigation on disinfestation and some physicochemical attributes of acorn seeds were investigated. Insects in domestic acorns were identified to be Curculio dentipes Roelofs and Dichocrocis punctiferalis Guenee, which were easily disinfestated immediately after commercial MBr fumigation. Irradiation also showed similar effects on mortality of the insects in different post-irradiation periods; at 3rd day with doses of 1-3 kGy and at around 30th day 0.5-1 kGy. MBr fumigation caused the decrease in lightness (Hunter L value), total phenolics and reducing sugars and the increase in yellowness (Hunter b value) and browning intensity for the subjected samples, as compared with the nontreated control and irradiated ones at 0.5-2 kGy. Furthermore, MBr fumigation resulted in decay for the most part of samples during storage at 5-10
for 6 months in a PVC box packaging with nets. As a result, optimum levels of irradiation is expected to be roe of the alternatives to chemical fumigants.
Plastic Films affect the Storage Quality of Green Chili Pepper
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 207~210
To prolong the shelf life of green chili pepper, packaging films such as 30
low density polyethylene(LDPE), 20
perforated polyolefin (SM250), 30
cast polypropylene (CPP) and 15
polyolefin (MPD) were used. LDPE showed a suitable gas concentration which consisted of 3-5% O
and below 5% CO
for keeping quality of green chili peppers after 10 days. Though weight loss was 9.3% for SM250 after 5 days, others showed below 2.0% weight loss after 40 days. Green chili peppers inside CPP package revealed a great decrease in ascorbic acid content after 30 days. SM250 showed a less total microbial count among packages, but there was no great differences among packages.
The Effects of Storage Temperature and pH on Color Change in Garlic Puree
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 211~216
This study was carried out to how the effects of storage temperature of garlic bulbs, pH and temperature of garlic puree on its color change. Color change was severely appeared in puree made of garlics stored at pH 4.0, 2
and pH 4.0, 25
. The color of garlic puree was changed from green to blue during storage. The yellowing occured by the oxidation at high temperature of puree. Garlic puree absorbed the wavelengths of 486nm. 580nm, and 656nm. The precursors of pigments produced by enzymatic reaction were seemed to be the reasons of color change because there was no my change of color in puree when the enzymes including alliinase were inactivated. However, the color changes of puree at low storage temperature should be studied further in the future.
Studios on Drying and Preservation of Omija (Schizandra chinensis BAILL.)
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 217~223
Quality and component of dry Omija during storage and shelf-life of fresh Omija were investigated. Acidity and pH of dry Omija were not significantly different among drying methods, but reducing sugar(3.77%) of field (drying was much lower than that of hot air drying(11.02%) and freeze drying(10.12%). Crude protein was higher in order of freeze drying> hot air drying> field drying, and the optical density of freeze drying at 520nm were higher up to about 3 times than field drying and hot air drying, respectively. Moisture content of dry Omija during the storage was increased, whereas acidity decreased at 25
. However changed little at 4, -5, -20
Reducing sugar increased until 8 mouth, and thereafter decreased continuously. Optical density and color(L,a,b) decreased at 25
but increased at 4, -5, -20
. Shelf-life of flesh Omija at 4
was limited to 9 days because staring decay. Acidity and reducing sugar of flesh Omija continuously decreased during storage at -5, -60
. Optical density increased until 8 month and then decreased, and especially the optical density of 8 month storage at -60
was higher than initial's.
Changes of Quality in Ginger according to Storage Conditions
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 224~230
In order to establish proper storage conditions for ginger, the quality changes of gingers stored at three different temperatures(7
) and three different relative humidities(75%, 85% and 95%RH) were investigated during 150 days of storage. Gingers stored at 7
showed rapid quality deterioration due to chilling injury and spouting respectively in any range of relative humidity. Ginger stored at 7
was staled to show symptoms of the chilling injury such as moldiness, shrivelling, discoloration etc after 30 days of storage ; then it was deteriorated after 90 days of storage. Ginger stored at 20
was completely lost its storage-life after 30 days of storage because of high sprouting ratio. However ginger stored at 12
, 75%RH showed better quality than ones stored at both 7
, but it was not so good as the one at 7
, 95%RH. Consequently storage conditions of 12
, 95%RH was observed the best effecive condition for keeping rhizomes in good quality from weight loss, spouting, mouldiness and so on.
Effects of Sawdust Removal on Root Part Enoki Mushroom (Flammulina velutipes) on quality during Storage
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 231~238
The effects of temperature(0, 5, 10
), sawdust removal in root part and packaging conditions on the respiration and keeping qualities were evaluated. Higher respiratory activity, weight loss and stipe elongation were observed at higher temperature. Removal of sawdust part slowed down the rate of stipe elongation with little effect on the respiration rates, and therefore improve the quality preservation. The modified atmosphere packaging of 100g mushroom using hermetically sealing by 30
polypropylene (CPP) and low density polyethylene (LDPE) films were effective in preserving the quality such as visual appearance and Hunter L value, and reducing weight loss at 0
compared to perforated packages.
Nitrogen-Oxygen Separation Characteristics by Polyimide Membrane System for Controlled Atmosphere Storage
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 239~246
Polyimide membrane system was designed for manufacturing nitrogen-enriched gas, and basic technical data was suggested for appling this system to controlled atmosphere storage. The permeability characteristics of pure oxygen and nitrogen could be explained by dual-mode sorption model. There was substantial decrease in the permeation rates of oxygen, which is the more permeable gas, through the polyimide membrane due to the presence of nitrogen in comparison with pure oxygen. However, the permeation rates of nitrogen was increased by the presence of oxygen. The ideal separation factor was in the range of 5 to 6 in the range of temperature and pressure difference studied, and the separation factor of air was lower than the ideal separation factor. The increase of ideal separation factor with increasing temperature is due to the fact that the activation energy for oxygen is larger than that for nitrogen. Nitrogen concentration decreased rapidly with increasing product recovery, and it was found that this is a major operating factor to obtain nitrogen concentration required for controlled atmosphere storage. A relation equation, by which nitrogen concentration in storehouse can be predicted, was suggested under the establishment of a hypothetical model for controlled atmosphere storage process using polyimide membrane system.

Utilization of Osmotic Dehydration as Pretreatment prior to Drying
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 5, issue 3, 1998, Pages 305~314
In the drying process, many undesirable physicochemical changes occur that influence dried food product qualities. Pretreatments method is used to reduce the deterioration of dried food product qualities such as color, flavor, texture, rehydration ability and retention of nutrients. The methods of pretreatments are blanching, chemical treatment and osmotic dehydration. Osmotic dehydration is a water removal process which is based on placing foods in a concentrated osmotic solution or in a dry osmotic material. A large number of process variables have a significant effect on process and final product quality. In order to improve final product quality it is necessary to know the role of each process variable and understand the mecanisms throughout the process. Osmotic dehydration is a valuable processing tool with great future in minimal processing of fruits and vegetables.
