Identification of compounds characterizing the aroma of oblate-peach fruit during storage by GC-MS

Three analytical methods, including headspace solid-phase microextraction (HS-SPME), liquid–liquid extraction (LLE) and steam distillation extraction (SDE), were utilized to investigate the aroma profile characteristics of Xinjiang oblate-peach fruit during storage, and the characterizing compounds were detected by gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Silica fiber...

Storability of breadfruit and its hazard analysis in Nigeria

Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) was dried using a multipurpose dryer (MPD) developed by researchers at Nigerian Stored Products Research Institute (NSPRI). Proximate composition of dehydrated flour and those stored for eight and twelve months was carried out. Moisture content was determined by air-oven method, while protein value was determined by Kjeldahl method. There were reductions in the moisture contents of...
