An Engineering Approach to Design Perforated and Non Perforated Modified Atmospheric Packaging unit for Capsicum

Pandey SK and Goswami T. K

 An engineering approach was used to design a packet containing capsicum under perforated and non perforated packaging conditions. A model combining the Michaelis-Menten kinetics to describe the respiration rate of the product with mass transfer equation to describe the gas transfer across the package provided a good fit to the experimental data. Developed model can be successfully utilized under similar conditions.
