Uncovered mushrooms had a shelf life of 2 to 4 days under similar conditions. Treatment of mushrooms with solutions of antioxidants followed by prepackaging with Resinite gave a shelf life of only 3 to 5 days. The shear press and reflectometer were found suitable for measuring texture and whiteness of mushrooms. Toughness of covered and uncovered mushrooms increased over a 5-day period. Uncovered mushrooms lost 31.6 percent of their original whiteness after 4 days while covered mushrooms lost 18.8 percent. The corresponding moisture losses were 68.3 and 10.8 percent.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||An Foras Talúntais||Journal:||Irish Journal of Agricultural Research||Volume:||6||Issue:||2||Start page:||255||End page:||265||Keywords:||Colour retention; Synthetic films; Polyphenol oxidase||Other versions:||http://www.jstor.org/stable/25555452||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
