The effects of active packaging on the surface stiffness, mass, volume, density and weight changes of fresh as well as stored eggplant were studied at 11 and 25°C for 10 days with active packaging material Type 1 and 2 and control. Mass, volume, and surface stiffness of eggplant decreased linearly throughout the storage period regardless of storage...

Context 1
... of the eggplant at all storage conditions, without exception, decreased linearly with storage period, which are obvious due to loss of moisture during storage (Fig. 1). The slope of curves indicate the rate of decreases. In all conditions, the slope of curves are the almost same regardless of active packaging type at 11 o C storage. But the rate of decrease differs with storage conditions at 25 o C. The slopes of curves of packaging Type 1 and 2 are lower than that of the curve of control. But the ...
Context 2
... increase in density may be due to a higher rate of decrease in volume in comparison to that of mass. The mass decreased at a lower rate than that of volume for the corresponding periods of storage of eggplant ( Fig. 1 and 2). The considerable difference in density was found in the case of storage at 25 o C, density of eggplant decreased significantly over 1 day of storage for all conditions showing the mass decreased at a higher rate than that of volume ( Fig. 1 and 2). ...
