POSTHARVEST DIRECTORY 2015

The Postharvest Directory, state of the art of main providers The Postharvest Directory was first published in 1988 and until last year has been a bilingual edition, predominantly in Spanish, with English abstracts. This is the second edition of the Postharvest Directory, entirely in English. We are very glad being able to tell that it got over 10,700 visitors and downloads exceeded 1,700. The information of the participating companies reflects the demands of modern horticultural industry. Seeds of varieties with good organoleptic characteristics, particularly good flavour, and good postharvest behavior. Agrochemicals in the range of "green" products increases, in parallel to the difficulty for the registration of new synthetic products. Cold storage systems and controlled atmospheres that allow take advantage of a reduced metabolic activity induced by cold and extreme gas combinations. The packinghouse machinery, to select and grade, is increasingly versatile and accurate and does its job more gently, also allowing separate excessively soft fruit, which is not suitable for prolonged storage or transport. The availability of equipment for “starters” (low capacities) increases, allowing the automation of all ranges of exploitation. Also the manufacturers of equipment for minimally processing, ready to eat, packaging, … pay attention to low / medium capacity units. The packaging materials have extended their services beyond the mere physical protection, functioning as an selective barrier. Modern flexible plastics with selective permeability enable sea transportation of perishable fruits such as cherries from Chile to markets as far away as Japan. Also considered materials for the construction of appropriate facilities, with good fences, doors save energy by avoiding thermal bridges, tools for assessing the quality in a simple way, … Other sources of update are other media and trade shows, also present in the Postharvest Directory.

Technology for root vegetables The particularities of the cleaning, grading, storage … of potatoes, onions, garlic, carrots, beets, turnips, radishes, ... is the reason for the pdf document "Info Root Vegetables”. The Postharvest Directory incorporates information from participating companies to its contents.

Information updated daily The Postharvest Directory is part of the Postharvest website, www.postharvest. biz,where you find daily updated information on equipment, materials and technology. Once a week, the newsletter Postharvest News summarizes it. You are kindly invited to subscribe, HERE, www.postharvest.biz/en/subscriber

Productos Citrosol At CITROSOL, for over 50 years we have devoted ourselves to research and to development, introduction and commercialisation of post-harvest technology and treatments to maintain the commercial quality of fresh fruit and vegetables. We ensure that fresh fruit and vegetables reach the consumer without losses, with all their flavour, with maximum life, at the best moment for consumption. Our ADVANCED POST-HARVEST SOLUTIONS are blazing the trail for post-harvest technologies and treatments: CITROSOL A S UE wax for citrus products, with its low drying temperature, which achieves considerable energy savings and a remarkable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, the ZERO SPILL SYSTEM®, which maintains initial treatment effectiveness without generating fungicide suspension residues, the Fortisol Ca and Fortisol Ca PLUS plant strengtheners, hydrosoluble salts of Ca, P and Na that stimulate the natural defences of the product, helping to control post-harvest decay and rind breakdown, and the combination of X3 NEBULIZER + GLOCUAT PC or QUACIDE PQ60 EC, a simple but innovative technology for disinfecting packinghouses. We are currently working on the control of post-harvest diseases in other fruits and vegetables, including peppers and tomatoes. We will soon be marketing an integrated system for washing peppers that ensures the food safety of the product, controls decay in all varieties of peppers and achieves a considerable reduction in water consumption. Citrosol has treated over 200 million tons of fruit (citrus, pears, apples, bananas, etc.), and this has enabled us to offer the best solutions to thousands of customers all over the world and to design new developments in more effective and more efficient postharvest systems. We have a multidisciplinary team specialising in postharvest technology and biology, electromechanics and engineering, quality control, chemistry and microbiology, working in a matrix organization system, constantly alert to detect and satisfy the needs of our customers and society in our area of activity.

Productos Citrosol X3 NEBULIZER + GLOCUAT PC

Effective disinfecting has never been so easy and cheap as nowadays

The winning combination that CITROSOL has developed: the X3 Nebulizer mobile unit together with Glocuat PC, a “ready to use” biocidal disinfectant. The nebulizer mist behaves like a gas that can reach any area or surface in the packinghouse, and on contact with walls or objects it becomes a liquid with practically total fungicidal/bactericidal effectiveness. The mobile unit allows the introduction of sequential C+D (cleaning+disinfection) programs in all rooms and areas in the packinghouse, with very low structural costs.

greenhouse gases (CO2, CO, etc. ) during this process is, as a consequence, also lower.

DRENCH ON LINE

A new system for on-line application of fungicides which reduces treatment variability by keeping the concentration of fungicide constant

CITROSOL A S UE

CITROSOL has developed a complete line of citrus covering waxes that is also effective at much lower drying temperatures This low drying temperature wax allows energy savings of 60-70% compared to traditional waxes. The amount of energy needed for drying the wax is therefore reduced. Emission of

This fungicide application system is very superior to other systems presently used in pre-grading – both pools and on-line systems. It reduces treatment variability and keeps constant fungicide concentration. Besides, consumption of those agrochemicals is sharply reduced. It includes our technology ZERO SPILLAGE SYSTEM®.

Phytofortifiers against postharvest decay and rind breakdown

FUMISPORE®

Excellent efficiencies in environmental Citrosol has developed FORTISOL® Ca Plus water-soluble salts of Ca, K and P that produce greater stimulation of the fruit’s natural defences against active pathogens in postharvest treatment of citrus. Fortisol® Ca has proven effectiveness in reduction and control of postharvest discolouration and in decay control. Fortisol® Ca PLUS has an enhanced efficiency in decay control. Both phytofortifiers are effective in controlling postharvest decay and rind breakdown.

disinfection and surface disinfection of cold stores

CITROSOL ZERO SPILLAGE SYSTEM®

Is the first industrial system that has a maximal efficiency and homogenity in controlling rot and decay It keeps the fungicide mixture in the drencher and deposit unchanged, allowing its continuous recycling and obtaining a constant efficiency in the treatment. At the same time, the need to treat surplus mixes is avoided, because their composition remains unchanged. The mixes can be recycled and used again during the whole citrus harvesting season.

FUMISPORE® has excellent efficiencies in environmental disinfection and surface disinfection of cold stores and several items of packinghouses, including machinery, as it is not corrosive or toxic, neither for humans or the environment (the security time is 4 hours). The combination active substance + ignition system can achieve high biocide efficiencies in any area due the high diffusion of the produced gas. Its efficacy in disinfecting field boxes and bins is also particularly high and relevant.

Deccofenato POT. Orthophenylphenol Deccoamonio Pot. Quaternary ammonium DECCO AEROSOL PLUS. NEW!!!

DECCO AEROSOL PLUS is an innovative system of disinfection by cold fumigation using a full-discharge aerosol. This aerosol pot is fitted with a valve that is pressed until trapped, staying then opened until all the content in the pot is released and diffused into the air. Full-discharge pots Decco Aerosol Plus contain E-202 preservative. This food additive is effective against fungi, bacteria and yeasts. It is used in food industry as a preservative in refrigerated dough, pasta, prepizza, frozen pizza, beverages, tomato sauce, margarine, cheese, stuffing, yogurt, nuts, ice creams, sausages, etc, and it is authorized for fresh citrus treatment. Consequently, Decco Aerosol Plus can be used in empty rooms in any type of food and/or agriculture industry.

Decco Aerosol Plus full-discharge system is comfortable and safe for the user. It does not require any application equipment nor represents any risk for the facilities, since there is no combustion. Pots can be applied in any closed environment or room

such as cold rooms, chambers, manipulation rooms, cooled trucks, etc. Using preservative E-202 does not trigger the appearance of resistant strains of microbial flora; therefore, pots can be periodically used. Its frequent use allows reducing or maintaining low contamination levels, (avoiding fruit inoculation during fruit and vegetable postharvest period), as well as avoiding food contamination in food industry. Industrial applications in cold rooms or trailers showed a reduction of ambient contamination between 70-80%. Having in mind that this is a food preservative with the mentioned advantages, we can consider Decco Aerosol Plus as a powerful tool to be used in food industry at a low cost. MELANITE

Formulation EC - Propiconazole 10%

Decco New postharvest synthetic fungicide developed for Geotrichum and Penicillium control of citrus fruit. Melanite is formulated as emulsifiable concentrate (EC) with propiconazole.

Its products are: “Vacuum Cooling� or vacuum precoolers, refrigeration chambers for cooling and storage, control and automation systems, and services related to refrigeration: chamber sizing, upgrading of existing chambers, design, construction and installation of refrigeration equipment; legal questions.

The vacuum precooling brings the product to the optimum storage temperature in less than half an hour. Cooling speed is very important today, due to the commercial dissemination of fresh cut presentation for fruit and vegetables and increasing demand for fresh produce throughout the year. This implies production of the same vegetable species in different climates according to season and also to displace the location of produce handling facilities. The shelf life of the product becomes an essential aspect for companies engaged in international trade of horticultural products. The faster a low temperature is achieved, longer is the average shelf life of the produce.

The largest vacuum precooling facility in Europe

Vacuum Cooling Vacuum pre-cooling is the most effective way to cool leafy vegetables such as lettuce Iceberg, Romaine, Batavia, Trocadero, chicory, cabbage, endive, or spinach. It also cools mushrooms, flowers, strawberries, etc. Cooling time is less than 25 minutes; equipment with capacity ranging from one to thirty pallets is available, also with vacuum coolers with capacities between 7-150 m3 .

Moelco, as a specialist in vacuum precoolers, has build the largest facility of this kind in Europe for Urcisol Group, located in Murcia, Spain. With a turnover capacity of 60 pallets/hour, the facility processes and trades 800.000 lettuce units a day, keeping the highest quality for each one unit.

A four lane electronic grader classifies after weight, diameter, color and quality, including sorting out of frost damaged fruit. Processing lines

For round and elongated vegetables The citrus pre-grading lines provided by Ingeniería Prodol have a continuous water bin delivery system with destacker/stacker and a water channel. From the later the fruit goes to a roller elevator and to the washing machine. After being washed, the fruit proceeds further to a six lane electronic sizer, being graded after diameter, weight, color and quality. The line is completed with bin fillers, fed by an empty bin automatic feeding system. Ingenieria Prodol manufactures packing lines for all kinds of fruits and vegetables: citrus, stone fruit, including plums, grapes; and also all kinds of vegetables: garlic, onions, potatoes. As well as juice extraction machines. All solutions are tailored for specific production needs.

Processing lines for vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, (courgette), cucumbers, eggplant…, manufactured by Ingeniería Prodol, are designed with modular elements, to fit the needs of each client. They are usually composed of a bank where the bins are dumped, a roller elevator that carries the fruit to the washer – waxer. A four lane electronic sizer also makes an electronic selection of defects and sorting by weight, size and, optionally, by color. The resulting packages contain fruit of homogeneous size, color and quality. Processing lines

.Smart chain electronic sizer

Precision for a large number of kinds of fruit

The smart chain electronic grader assesses weight, quality, color and dimension in species of various shapes and is adapted also to work with very delicate fruit. The fuit acceses the intelligent electronic sizer on a sloped surface, being pushed by rubber fingers to the entry of weighing scales and going on further through an ejecting mechanism. The ejecting mechanism pushes the fruit to the side, resting on a soft nylon brush, avoiding in that way hits and blows. The conveying system allows the processing of any kind of fruit and vegetables, getting for them the desired weight. Computers and different kinds of electronic sensors are used. They are coordinated by a special software. The system is able to measure weight, quality, color, size (length, width, area). A camera and electronic platelet obtain up to 50 pictures/second.

The electronic selector of defects, shape, color, diameter and weight by IngenierĂ­a Prodol works based on specifications in order to obtain optimal results in the measurements to perform. The quality and color system is based in the use of CCD color cameras that allow the detection of major basic colors, secondary colors and four different defects, being able to tell apart up to three different spots for each defect. The fruit is turned around under the camera to show its whole surface and that examination can be seen in the monitor. The grading system by diameter rests on the use of black and white CCD cameras. It has specific algorithms for calculating diameter and has the ability to measure diameter, length or both. In the grading system by weight, a digitalizing process eliminates signals generated by vibration of the machine. Each conveyor cart is dynamically weighted to establish the tare, which is subtracted from the measured value in the conveyor cart loaded. All variations in tare are automatically compensated.

Semperfresh is a coating based on sucrose esters. Natureseal is used to slow down darkening and other ageing symptoms in apples, pears, carrots, celery and other ready to eat fresh cut products. Natureseal FS has been added to this range of products as a result of the demand of processors after a chlorine free product for washing the produce before cutting. FS is a blend of different acids that could be used to substitute traditional chlorine wash while processing fruit and vegetables. Its sulfite-free (GRAS) ingredients continue to be recognized for meeting the industry’s highest standards for quality, performance, consistency and functionality. Agricoat has made a long term commitment to superior research and development, quality control and good manufacturing practices.

Semperfresh is a coating developed by AgriCoat for the postharvest protection of fruit like pears, melons, pineapples or cherries. Its components are approved by the European Union and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States for the superficial treatment of produce. In order to obtain the best results it should be applied after hydrocooling. It can be applied at the same as fungicides, for instance.

Natureseal

Natural coatings for shelf-life extension

Natureseal is easy to apply and does not contaminate the fruit with smell or flavor. Using Natureseal, the fruit keeps its taste and natural color, texture and firmness. Packaging under modified atmosphere is not necessary. Shelf life is extended up to two weeks beyond normal, lengthening available time for product distribution, improving production and processing efficiency.

CITROGÁS-CONTROL

Allows automatic control of working / environmental conditions in rooms for cold storage and degreening/ripening of fruit PRODUCTOS CITROSOL, S.A. Partida Alameda, parcela C 46721 POTRÍES (Valencia) - SPAIN Ph. +34-962 800 512 Fax +34-962 800 821 citrosol@citrosol.com www.citrosol.com At CITROSOL, for over 50 years we have devoted ourselves to research and to development, introduction and commercialisation of postharvest technology and treatments to maintain the commercial quality of fresh fruit and vegetables.

It is a system for control and regulation of cold storage and degreening rooms. Electronic sensors that measure humidity, temperature and infrared CO2 sensors are used for automatic management of fruit storage and degreening/ripening rooms. Chambers equipped with CITROGAS-CONTROL achieve a more precise control of temperature and relative humidity. Besides, measurement and control of CO2 levels allows for optimal ventilation, reducing the operating time of the humidity, warming and refrigeration systems and thus achieving important energy savings.

We ensure that fresh fruit and vegetables reach the consumer without losses, with all their flavour, with maximum life, at the best moment for consumption. Service managers in charge: Valencia (Spain): Javier Monzonís, jvmonzonis@citrosol.com Castellón (Spain): Cristian Ortells, cristian@citrosol.com Murcia (Spain): Raúl Ortiz, raulortiz@citrosol.com Málaga (Spain): Francisco Palomo, malaga@citrosol.com Sevilla (Spain): Antonio Herrera, antonioherrera@citrosol.com Internacional: Julio Marín, juliom@citrosol.com

In those degreening/ripening processes, the equipment also regulates automatically ethylene levels, adjusting its consumption and keeping the right concentration to make the process develop correctly. This leads to better degreening or ripening and longer shelf life, without decreases in the organoleptic traits, weight or skin appearance of the fruit. This system permits connection to a PC on which all the relevant parameters of its functioning are recorded.

Isolcell Italy has conceived and developed several high quality storage monitoring and control systems that control and generate the desired atmosphere. The most important ones are N2 separators, O2 and CO2 scrubbers and ethylene converters, O2 and CO2 analyzers and the related automation systems. DCA, an exclusive Isolcell product

Scald control without postharvest chemical treatments

DCA allows to control scald, avoiding at the same time the use of chemical antioxidants - like DPA (diphenylamine ) and ethoxyquin – in the postharvest treatments. The system, patented by the Government of Canada and developed by Dr. Angelo Zanella, is distributed throughout Europe exclusively by ISOLCELL ITALIA SpA. This method replaces the static conservation parameters with dynamic ones resulting from the response given by the fruit itself. It uses a special sensor that measures the fluorescence emitted by apples, thereby identifying the minimum threshold of oxygen tolerated by the fruit. The AC conservation takes place at a value slightly above that threshold, dynamically adjusted throughout the storage period. By lowering the level of oxygen in the storage chambers, internal metabolic activity is drastically reduced, which results in a better maintenance of internal and external characteristics defining product quality. Using this technology, ISOLCELL meets the growing consumer´s demand requiring produce free of chemical residues. Another advantage of DCA is the drastic reduction of internal browning in varieties like Granny, Braeburn, Pink Lady and Fuji. And also the exclusion of drencher as post-harvest treatment to apply antioxidants, significantly reduces the percentage of rotten apples in storage. Due to this experience and to the close cooperation between research institutes, technology companies and customers, ISOLCELL has demonstrated once again to be at the forefront of fruit storage technology. This new storage technology is used with commercial purposes since 2003 and its use is extending rapidly overseas. The graph shows the development of DCA cameras in the last 7 years in Italy (blue), other countries (gray) and the sum of both values(green)..

In the industry sector of the storage of apples and pears, a new technology called “DCA Conservation” (Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere) is being increasingly used. More in Postharvest

Agricoat Natureseal offers products to maintain quality in freshcut fruit and vegetables Natureseal dips are composed of food grade vitamin and minerals, developed and formulated specifically for various freshcut products. Natureseal PS10 has been used for some years by processors of a variety of vegetables, but specifically roots, including potato, parsip, celeriac, and sweet potato. The formulation has also been used successfully on some varieties of pepper, and cucurbits such as butternut squash. Although good technical results are seen, and customers do use the products on some of these vegetables, the relatively high cost has meant processors of lower value products, such as whole peeled, or quartered potato, have struggled to make the change from the industry standard for these products, sodium metabisulphite. Although sulphites are still widely used, there is a growing demand for sulphite free alternatives, and Agricoat Natureseal have been working hard to develop a solution that will give comparable results on potato at a lower cost than our PS10 solution. The company is now testing with industry partners new formulations that show promise, especially when used in combination with vacuum packaging or a microperforated MA film.

The use of Natureseal™ PS10 to extend the shelf life of fresh cut parsnip This trial was used to verify the effectiveness of Natureseal™ PS10 when used on parsnips. Different concentrations of PS10 were tested with prepared samples, and the samples evaluated over four days. The results suggest that treatment Natureseal™ PS10 solution at approximately 8 % w/w concentration is effective as way of extending the shelf life of peeled and cut parsnip pieces.

SR1 as alternative to the sodium metabisulfite in ready to use potatoes The use of sodium metabisulfite to maintain the quality of peeled and fresh cut potatoes has the advantage of the economy but it use is increasingly questioned in certain markets. Current technology offers potential alternatives as are other types of preservatives and modified atmospheres. An essay evaluates Agricoat SR1 as dip solution, and Amcor plastic packaging with selective permeability. This study suggests that King Edward not only have a longer shelf life than Maris piper when untreated, but they also respond better to the treatments. The trial indicates that a shelf life of P+7 for King Edward, and P+4 for Maris Piper can be achieved when using SR1 at 2.5 % with Amcor microperforated film.

The picture belongs to the discolouration assessments in King Edward. More information: http://www.postharvest.biz/en/company/agricoat-natureseal-ltd/_id:49906,seccion:news,n oticia:77118/

DOMOX BASE DMC Product presentation (peeled potato, peacemeal, cutted or whole) is a relevant aspect that can improve consumption of such product.DOMOX BASE is an effective product against oxidation of peeled potatoes, extending noticeably the shelf life of the tubers. The present report is based in the present conditions of the industry and on potato production in the area, and also on the technological traits of the produce and on its demand, focusing on a high quality product to be adapted to that demand system and its requests.

Potato varieties to be chosen A determinant factor is the chosen potato variety (Solanum tuberosum L) to be used. A great number of potato varieties are available and their relevant traits are also very numerous. Color and texture of the skin, color of the flesh, number of eyes, shape of the tuber, cooking characteristics, type of sprouts, aerial stems, productivity, precocity in sprouting, tuber growth and cropping season, resistance to disease, etc. But the most commonly used agronomic trait in order to establish potato varieties is the duration of the cropping cycle: extra-early, early, average length and late varieties.

Temperature and storage time for potatoes

Fuente: P. Rouselle, Y. Robert, J.C. Crosnier. 1999

Description of peeled potato processing plant Regrading process technology, following stages are to be considered: - Supply and unloading of raw materials: It can be done in bulk or unloading using a hopper. It can also happen in crates, through special mechanisms designed for direct unloading. It is more convenient to unload directly at the processing plant, because it makes the storage procedure easier in case they are not sent directly to the processing lane. At the same time, the industrial facilities needed are more simple. - Storage of the raw material: the potatoes are stored in the cold chamber loaded in the same crates in which they were taken to the facility. They can also be directly processed. Taking into account the behavior of the potatoes under storage and possible losses during that time, it is decided to keep them in crates during its storage period. - Peeling: Potatoes can be peeled using different procedures. Most commonly used are procedures base on steaming, bleaching or abrasion. Abrasive peeling is done through contact of the tubers with rolls of silicon carbide, an abrasive material made of carbon and silicon.

Info ROOT & VEGETABLES 2015

Advantages of these procedure is its low energy cost (it is made at room temperature), low investment required and good external appearance of the produce peeled in that way. The skin is gathered in two buckets and the water from the peeler is collected, filtered and 50 % of it recycled. In the next step, the peeled potatoes are inspected on a conveyor belt, where a worker can remove damaged tubers or tuber parts. Those damaged units, and also not processed ones, are sold to the food industry as raw materials for mashed potatoes, soups and other processed products. Resiudual water goes to the sewage system, after being freed from grease and mud. - Fresh cut. Wet or dry industrial procedures can be applied at this manufacturing stage, depending on the raw material to be used. A soft wash, through water immersion, takes place at the beginning of the process, in order to get rid of peel and starch reminders from the surface of the potato slices. These procedure does not damage the raw material and does not involve the use of chemicals.The peeled potatoes go to a hopper and from the hopper to a variable speed vertical conveyor, that takes the input to a cutting machine. The cutter has stainless steel rotating blades that cut to pieces the potatoes moving below them. The blades give a clean cut, giving the potato slices a thickness of about 1.2 and 3.5 mm. After cutting, starch still present in the potato slices must be removed. The slices are submerged in water again, a soft washing procedure. In order to recycle that water, it must be freed of starch. The water is gathered and filtered, and 50 % of it reused in the process. The starch is also collected. - Drying: the potato slices are spread on a conveyor belt and the remaining water is taken away using a drying fan. - Packaging: the finished product is packaged in flexible bags using a packaging weigher, either automatic or manual. Preferably under vacuum. Packaging material should be the right one for the product and also be accepted by the market. - Storage and dispatch: For manufacturing and processing, an advanced technology should be used, in order to obtain a high quality product, competitive on both national and international markets. - Application of DOMOX BASE DMC. Due to its contents on antioxidants and preservatives, and also to its antimicrobial properties, it is possible to lengthen the conservation time of peeled potatoes and other vegetables. Up to 30 days, depending on storage conditions. (Use 1.3 kg DOMOX BASE DMC in 100 liters water) With one immersion it is possible to process five times its weight oh potatoes or other vegetables.
