MACIEL, Maria Inês Sucupira; LIMA, Vera Lúcia Arroxelas Galvão de; SANTOS, Eufrásio Souza dos  e  LIMA, Marilene da Silva. Effects of biofilm and refrigeration on acerola postharvest conservation. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.1, pp.168-170. ISSN 0100-2945.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452004000100044.

The objective of this work was to compare the effects of four different concentrations of cassava starch film and storage temperature on shelf life and the quality of a genotype of acerola from the Germplasm Active Bank (GAB) of Federal Rural University of Pernambuco, Brazil. Sound orange-reddish acerola fruits were washed with a chlorine solution (100 mg.L-1 active chlorine) and randomly distributed into different lots. The fruits were dipped for 3 min in a cassava starch suspension with concentrations of 1, 2, 3 and 4% (w/v) and the control without coating, stored at 10ºC (85% RH) and 22ºC (85% RH). The total soluble solids (TSS), pH, titratable acidity (TA) and ascorbic acid (AA) were determined at harvest and regular interval during storage. The use of cassava biofilm at 1% on acerola fruits maintained the highest ascorbic acid content and the temperature of 10ºC extended storage life. The fruits coated with 1 and 2% biofilm could be stored for a period up to 15 days at 10ºC, with acceptable quality characteristics.
