The influence of short-term storage in air atmosphere and modified atmosphere (MA) conditions obtained by different film perforations and storage conditions on carrot root quality was studied. The carrots were stored at temperature conditions simulating the commercial distribution chain.

One kilogram of carrots were packaged at a commercial packing house in pouches with (1) 13 laser perforations, (2) 11 warm needle perforations and 3) approximately 560 warm needle perforations per 10 x 10 cm (“bread pouch”).......
