Cold injuries are associated with specific transit times and temperatures, in which cells are damaged by prolonged exposure to these conditions.
One of the most common problems that develop due to these adverse conditions, is internal browning, where the enzyme PPO (polyphenol oxidase) oxidizes the cells damaged by the cold, generating visible damage to the pulp.
The Liventus Controlled Atmosphere efficiently inhibits the respiratory rate of the fruit, and therefore its metabolism. By controlling the metabolism, the enzymatic activity is also reduced, therefore, the enzymes responsible for generating this type of deterioration are inhibited, preventing the development of problems associated with cold damage.
