    Abstract

    Efficacy of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)-based edible coating having calcium chloride (1%) and ascorbic acid (AA) (1%) in maintaining the postharvest quality of pineapple cubes was studied. Coated fresh-cut pineapple cubes were kept at 5 ± 2°C for 15 days. Coated cubes maintained nutritional and sensorial quality over the control and exhibited lower weight loss up to 15 days. AA and total phenolics in coated pineapple were higher than that of control. The polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase activity found lower in coating treatments till the end of storage period. Further, browning incidence with CMC containing anti-browning agents was lower than that of CMC alone. Total microbial counts for all coated treatments were within safe limits. In a nutshell, combined use of CMC with anti-browning agents, namely, calcium chloride (1%) and AA (1%) may be useful for upholding the postharvest quality of pineapple cubes.
