The effect of modified atmosphere packaging conditions on quality of minimally processed kale
Summary.

The aim of the study was to determine the effect of packaging conditions on quality of minimally processed kale during 12-day storage at a temperature of 4°C. In the experiment the packaging material was film with oxygen permeability of 1.5 and 35 cm3/m2 during 24 h, micro­perforation of packaging material and modified atmosphere with a high oxygen content (30, 55 and 80%) were applied. Packaging in air atmosphere was also used. Samples packaged in air and in atmosphere consisted of 80% O2 / 10% CO2 / 10% N2, using packaging film microperforation received the highest scores in sensory examination during storage. Values of these scores after 12-day storage ranged from 4.6 to 5.0. Samples packaged using packaging material without microperforation, irrespective of its permeability, were evaluated as sensorily acceptable up to the 9th day of storage. Further storage, as a result of too little permeability of the packaging material, resulted in the appearance of unpleasant aroma and disqualification of the sample.

Key words: modified atmosphere packaging, kale, sensory quality
