Abstract

Broccoli consumption in India is increasing due to the presence of many health promoting compounds along with the pres- ence of glucosinolates, flavonoids, vitamins and free radical scavenging properties. However, bioactive compounds appreci - ably decrease due to existing poor post-harvest management scenario in India. The present studies have been undertaken to package the broccoli in 30 μ Flexfresh™ biopolymer of small size (300 g ± 10%, 205 mm width and 250 mm height, oxygen transmission rate (OTR) 1250 cc/24 h/500 g) and 30 μ Flexfresh™ biopolymer of big size (900 g ± 10%, 255 mm width and 350 mm height, OTR 2500 cc/24 h/500 g) and stored at 3 and 10 °C with relative humidity 90–95% under modified atmospheric (MA) storage. Colour and appearance sensory score decreased from 8.5 to 6.16 and from 8.5 to 6.0 in small and big size broccoli after 49 days of MA storage at 3 °C. However, fully control broccoli spoiled after 7 days of MA storage at 10 °C due to complete change from green to yellow colour. Atmospheric oxygen in small size polymer decreased from 20 to 5.66% and from 20 to 5.2% during initial 2 days of storage at 3 and 10 °C, respectively. In comparison to decrease of oxygen in small size polymer, the decrease of oxygen in big size
