Application of Natural Polymer as a Fruit Coater to Reduce Post Harvest Losses of Grapes
Alvikar Annapurna R., D. K. Gaikwad
Abstract: The natural coater was prepared with the application of mucilage powder along with protein, lipid complexes. The natural coater prepared from Parkia biglandulosa, Bombax ceiba, Spathodea campanulata and Muntingia calabura mucilage improves the water content, relative water content, succulence and osmotic potential of grape fruits, this will helpful to maintain the turgidity of fruits. Turgidity is a sign quinon of freshness of vegetables and fruits. The application of various concentrations of natural coater to grape fruit significantly improves the turgidity and water content of fruits. This will helps to maintain the freshness and shelf life of grape berries. Thus, the application of mucilage as a natural polymers, extracted from the waste flowers, fruits and leaves of these avenue roadside plants would be helpful in maintaining the quality of harvested fruits as well as it might be helpful to reduce the losses caused during post harvest transport.
