Influence of Postharvest UV-C Illumination on Biochemical Properties of Green Beans

See — In this study, harvested green beans (Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Bourgondia) were subjected to different doses of UV-C illuminations (0.1, 0.3, 0.5 kJ m − 2; low, medium, and high dose, respectively) and stored under modified atmosphere packages (MAP) at 8°C for 25 days. The extension in storage time resulted increase in weight loss, fluctuations in TSS content, and respiration rate. Medium and high doses resulted higher total phenolic contents comparing to control and low dose treatments. No UV-C damage or deterioration was detected during the entire cold storage period, however medium and high doses caused damages…
