CRC Press, 2015. — 392 p. — ISBN 978-1-4822-1697-4Features Addresses new technologies for the preservation of fresh fruits and vegetables Emphasizes technologies that are more environmentally sustainable and economically competitive Discusses consumer behavior in response to postharvest technologies Provides modeling approaches for predicting changes in postharvest qualitySummary Advances in Postharvest Fruit and Vegetable Technology examines how changes in community attitudes and associated pressures on industry are demanding changes in the way technology is used to minimize postharvest loss and maintain product quality. In particular, the book discusses important drivers for change, including: Using more natural chemicals or physical treatments to replace synthetic chemicals; Increasing the efficiency of older, more traditional methods in combination with newer biocontrol treatments; Leveraging a range of biomolecular research tools or "omics" to efficiently gather and assess mass information at molecular, enzymic, and genetic levels; Using modelling systems to identify key changes and control points for better targeting of new treatments and solutions to postharvest problems; The postharvest handling of fresh fruits and vegetables plays a critical role in facilitating a continuous supply of high-quality fresh produce to the consumer. Many new technologies developed and refined in recent years continue to make possible an ever-expanding supply of fresh products. This volume examines a range of recently developed technologies and systems that will help the horticulture industry to become more environmentally sustainable and economically competitive, and to minimize postharvest quality loss and generate products that are appealing and acceptable to consumers.Contents Series Preface Series Editor Preface Acknowledgment Editors Contributors Postharvest Technology Experimentation: Solutions to Common Problems Recent Research on Calcium and Postharvest Behavior Nondestructive Assessment of Fruit Quality Biological Control of Postharvest Diseases Physical and Chemical Control of Postharvest Diseases Advances in the Use of 1-MCP Advances in Edible Coatings Low Ethylene Technology in Non-Optimal Storage Temperatures Potential of Nitric Oxide as a Postharvest Technology Methyl Jasmonate in Postharvest Postharvest Oxidative Stress in Fresh Fruits Advances in Postharvest Maintenance of Flavor and Phytochemicals Metabolomics Tools for Postharvest Quality and Safety of Fresh Produce.
