Abstract

Active alginate-based coatings with quercetin glycoside and complexes of hydroxyapatite/quercetin-glycoside were used to study the shelf life of fresh cut papaya stored at 6 degrees C. Hydroxyapatite was used as a carrier for the release of the bioactive compound. The parameters considered affecting the quality of the fruit during storage were weight loss, color, texture, sugars and volatile compounds. Active coatings with hydroxyapatite and quercetin glycoside proved a higher capacity to slow down the degradation phenomena studied, showing less weight loss, a lower reduction in glucose and fructose, as well as better firmness, than the other samples after 14 days of cold storage. Benzyl isothiocyanate, the characteristic odor compound of papaya fruit, ranged from approximately 10.0 mu g/kg in fresh cut fruit to approximately 7.50 mu g/kg in samples coated by alginate with hydroxyapatite/quercetin and 3.6 mu g/kg in the fresh cut papaya without coating after 14 days of cold storage. The trials also indicated greater effectiveness of alginate coatings alone and with quercetin-glucoside in preserving the color of freshly cut papaya.
