The effect of storage under ambient conditions of kinnows coated with casei
n film and packed in low and high density polyethylene bags on some quality
parameters was studied. The quality parameters such as physiological weigh
t loss, firmness, peel thickness, juice and the decay were measured. It was
found that the casein film delayed the loss of firmness, with minimum loss
in physiological weight and juice level during storage. It was possible to
extend the shelf-life of kinnows by 20 days without any significant change
in quality with the use of this technique.
