Development of Postharvest Technologies to Preserve High Quality of Greenhouse Horticultural Commodities and their Processed Products -Development of Natural Antimicrobial Agents for preserving Greenhouse Fresh Produce(II)
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 7, issue 1, 2000, Pages 1~7
To develop natural antimicrobial agents for keeping qualities of postharvested greenhouse produce the antimiocrobial actions of Polygonum cuspidatum Sieb. et Zucc. extract , which showed remarkable antimicrobial effects against microorganism causing the postharvest decay of greenhouse produce, were investigate. In the inhibitory experiment of enzymes related to energy production metabolism hexokinase activities decreased to 73% and 68% by treating with Polygonum cuspidatum Sieb. et.Zucc. extract and Eugenia caryophyllata Thumnberg extract in comparison with control, respectively. Direct visualization of microbial cells by using both transmission electron microscope and scanning electron microscope showed that microbial cell membrane was destroyed by treating with the dilute extract solution. this change of celluloar membrane permeability could be identified in the experiment that 0-nitrophenyl-
-D-galactopyrano-side(ONPG), the artificial substrate of
-galactosidase, was hydrolyzed in the presence of the extract, indicating that the membrane was perturbed. The separation and identification of the most antimicrobialo substances isolated from Polygonum cuspidatum Sieb et. Zucc. extract and Eugenia caryophyllata Thunberg extract were carried out by using gas chromatography and mass spectrometry 9GC/MSD), which were identified as eugenol. As a result, the functionality of Polygonum cuspidatum Sieb. et Zucc. extract and Eugenia caryophyllata Thunberg extract as antimicrobial agents for keeping qualities of postharvested greenhouse produce may be recommended.
Effect of Antimicrobial Dipping and Packaging on the Keeping Quality of Cucumbers
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 7, issue 1, 2000, Pages 8~11
The antimicrobial extracts of rheum palmatum and coptis chinensis root as well as grapefruit seed extract(GFSE) were applied to dipping treatment for keeping qualities of cucumbers, respectively, which were then packed in low density polyethylene(LDPE) films incorporated with 1 % antimicrobial extracts and stored
. Dipping and packaging in the antimicrobial agents suppressed the growth of putrefactive microorgani는 and the decay ratio of cucumbers. In addition, the loss ratio of ascortic acid content and their weight was decreased during the sotrage of cucumbers. Consequently, the combined method of dippinf and packaging in antimicrobial agents turned out to be superior to dipping treatment or film-packaging in the view point of decay ratio and the keeping qualities of cucumbers.
Fabrication of Polyethylene Films Coated with Antimicrobials in a Binder and Their Application to Modified Atmosphere Packaging of Strawberries
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 7, issue 1, 2000, Pages 12~18
As am economical and effective way of antimicrobial film fabrication , antimicrobial agents were coated on the LDPE film with a binder mediu. the fabricated films were then applied tomodified atmosphere packaging of fresh strawberries. A binder of polyamide was selected for the coating medium, based on the stability in water. 1% grapefruit seed extract-coated film showed the antimicrobial activity on the plate media against EScherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, bacillus subtilis , Bacillus cereus, Leuconostoc mesenteroides, Micrococcus flavus, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, while one with 10% Coptis chinesis extract inhibited only M. 림편 and one coated with 10% rheum palmatum extract did not inhibit any of 10 strains tested. The packages of fresh strawberries by using antimicrobial agents-coated films created the gas compositions of O2 1.4-5.5% and CO2 5.7-7.9%, and contributed to reduced growth of total aerobic bacteria and yeast/molds on the produced. However, their lower microbial count was not correlated directly with the reduced decay of the fruits.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 7, issue 1, 2000, Pages 57~62
Ginseng was stored at a temperature lower than the freezing point after a treatment of freezing point depressing agents to extend its freshness. Respiration rate at freezing point of ginseng, -1.7
, was inhibited 92% and 97% compared with those stored at 5
, respectively. Sorbitol solution chosen as a freezing point depressing agent lowered the freezing point of ginseng to about -3.0
. Ginsengs treated with the sorbitol solution and packaged with 0.06mm LDPE was stored at -2
, and the quality change was then compared with ginsengs stored at 0
. Weight loss of ginsengs stored at -2
for 100days was 1.5%, which is about 2.6times less than those stored at 5
. However, there were no significant difference between the ginsengs stored at -2
and at 0
(1.9%). Spoilage rate of the ginsengs was 100% after 50 days of storage at 5
and 25% after 100days at 0
respectively. but that of ginsengs stored at -2
was 13%, which was half than that of ginsengs stored at 0
. Firmness and amount of monoscaccharides in ginsengs were decreased during storage at 5 or 0
but ginsengs stored at -2
showed better firmness and an increase in monosaccharides such as fructose and glucose. From above, when ginseng treated with freezing pont depressing agents were stored at -2
, the shelf life was extended to 2 or 3 times longer than those that were stored at 5 or 0

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 7, issue 1, 2000, Pages 103~107
Previously , the methanolic extract of peach sees was found to have a strong tyrosinase inhibitory activity in an in vitro assay. Several phenolic compunds were isolated from the seeds by solvent fractionation , Sephadex LH-20 chromatography, and preparative HPLC , and one of them showing strong tyrosinase inhibition was identified as benzoic acid by UV, IR,
C-NMR, and EI-MS spectrsopy. Benzoic acid (IC50= 250
/ml) and L-ascorbic acid (IC50=28
/ml), well-known tyrosinase inhibitors. In particular , benzoic acid inhibited markedly the enzymatic browing (melanosis) of apple juices at low concentration of 0.01% and 0.05, comparable to that of L-ascorbic acid (P<0.05). these results suggest that benzoic acid, one of an effective food preservatives, may be potentially useful as a functional alternative to sulfites for the control of melanosis in fruit juices.
