Inactivation of Escherichia coli population on fruit surfaces using ultraviolet-C light: Influence of fruit surface characteristicsDownload
Ultraviolet-C (UV-C 254 nm) light is a possible alternative for chemical disinfection of fresh fruits. However, studies on the influence of surface characteristics on the kinetics of UV-C inactivation of microorganisms on fruits are limited. In this study, UV-C inactivation of generic Escherichia...
UV-C light inactivation of penicillium expansum on pear surfaces: Influence on physicochemical and sensory quality during storageDownload
UV-C inactivation kinetic data of Penicillium expansum on intact and wounded pear disks were determined. P. expansum conidia (0.5 mL, 1.6 × 107 CFU/mL) were spot inoculated onto intact and wounded pear tissue with skin (excised disks), treated with UV-C doses ranging 0.101–3.06 kJ/m2 at 23 °C and...
