  • Enable the reuse of rinse water.
  • The use of WAC10/WAC12 can enhance the protection of fruits and vegetables in the packing process.
  • WAC10 oxygenates rinse water that assist in killing pathogens.

    A novel antimicrobial ZnO nanoparticles-added polysaccharide edible coating for the preservation of postharvest fruits, vegetables, eggs etc. under ambient conditions. The postharvest loss of fresh fruits and vegetables are estimated to be around 20–30%. Given the perishable nature of fruits and vegetables, the use of cold storage is necessary to delay changes related to ripening, such as ethylene making, softening, pigment changes, respiration rate, acidity changes and a decrease in weight. However, cold storage is not enough to preserve fruits and vegetables quality at optimum levels during transportation, often leading to the incidence of severe chilling injury symptoms. Therefore the appropriate postharvest technologies combined with cold storage are needed.

    Edible coatings or films that is effective and sustainable in preventing the waste of millions of tons of fruits and vegetables resulting from decay and deterioration. Edible coatings have gained significant attention due to the advantageous properties they offer and their ability to extend fruit and vegetable shelf-life. These coatings are a novel type of primary packaging made from biological compounds like polysaccharides, proteins, lipids, and other polymers.
