POMEGRANATE STORAGE

POMEGRANATES HAVE BEEN CULTIVATED FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.

SIMULATION OF STORAGE IN R&D LAB

STORAGE TEMPERATURE

  • THE OPTIMUM STORAGE TEMPERATURE FOR POMEGRANATE IS 5-7 °C. THE IDEAL TEMPERATURE 
  • FOR 8 WEEK STORAGE IS 5 °C, WHILE 7 °C IS RECOMMENDED FOR LONGER PERIODS. CHILLING 
  • INJURY OCCURS IF FRUIT IS STORED AT TEMPERATURES BELOW 5 °C.. 
     

POMEGRANATE IS HIGHLY - SUSCEPTIBLETO WATER LOSS

  • POMEGRANATE IS HIGHLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO WEIGHT LOSS SCIENTIFIC REPORTS DEMONSTRATED THAT POMEGRANATE FRUIT LOOSES 15-17% WEIGHT DURING 45 DAYS STORAGE. THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO INHIBIT WEIGHT LOSS IS TO USE TRENDLIFE  MODIFIED ATMOSPHERE BAGS. 
     

RECENT TECHNOLOGIES

  • THE MOST EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES USED FOR THE LONG TERM STORAGE OF POMEGRANATE ARE 
  • MODIFIED ATMOSPHERE AND CONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE APPLICATIONS . THE ATMOSPHERE 
  • WITHIN PACKAGE OR STORAGE ROOM SHOULD INCLUDE OXYGEN BETWEEN 4 AND 6%, AND CARBON DIOXIDE BETWEEN 13 AND 16%.

 

TRENDLIFE TECHNOLOGY

  • TRENDLIFE MA BAGS CONSIST OF INTELLIGENT MOLECULES THAT CREAT AN ATMOSPHERE CONTAINING O2, CO2, ETHYLENE, ACETALDEHYDE,AND ETHANOL AT OPTIMUM LEVELS AFTER 3-4 WEEKS OF STORAGE OF POMEGRANATE. 
  • THIS PERIOD IS CRTICAL FOR INHIBITING THE START OF ANY POSTHARVEST DECAY AND DISORDERS. THE ADJUSTMENT OF CRITICAL VOLATILES WITHIN THE ATMOSPHERE BY USING HIGH TECHNOLOGY  TRENDLIFE BAGS RESULTS IN LONG TERM STORAGE OF POMEGRANATE WITH MINUMUM LOSS


Pomegranate Quality Indices


- Freedom from growth cracks, sunburn, cuts, bruises, and decay.
- Skin color and smoothness.
- Aril color intensity and uniformity.
- Flavor depends on sugar/acid ratio, which varies among cultivars. A soluble solids content above 17% and total henolic 
content below 0.25% are desirable for optimal levels of sweetness and astringency, respectively
 

       Pomegranate respiration rate increases with temperature except that those kept at 0c exhibit higher rate than at 2c as a result of chilling injury     Exposure of pomegranates to ethylene stimulates their respiration rate in porportion to ethylene concentration , but does not influence their composition      Pomegranate is a nonclimacteric fruit that produces less than 0.1 microliter ethylene per kilogram-hour

STORAGE AFTER 3 - 4 MONTHS IN  TRENDLIFE BAGS
