Modified Atmosphere Packaging for Fresh-Cut Fruits and Vegetables



About the Book

Modified Atmosphere Packaging for Fresh-cut Fruits andVegetables provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects ofmodern MAP technologies for fresh-cut fruits and vegetables.Coverage begins with the general MAP concept and application byintroducing the concept of MAP, how MAP works for fresh-cut produceand the benefits and shortfalls of MAP in its application. The bookthen discusses the basic aspects of MAP - packaging materialsand machinery. In these sections, the book addresses not only thegeneral information about MAP materials, but also supplies examplesto introduce the new packaging films and their successfulapplication in produce and fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. Uniquechapters and sections in the book include relevant patents for MAP, commercial practices and MAP packaging machinery. Generally, packaging machinery is only included in books specifically coveringpackaging engineering. Coverage of this important aspect isincluded in the book since fresh-cut manufacturers spend much moretime in the day-to-day operations on packaging machinery andsystems as compared to packaging film materials. In the finalsection, Modified Atmosphere Packaging for Fresh-cut Fruits andVegetables highlights the latest developments in the packagingindustry and how they could impact the fresh-cut industry.
