Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) refers to the use of plastic or polymeric films that enclose fresh produce resulting in respiration- and transpiration-based changes in the atmosphere surrounding the commodity (Figure 11).The main goal of MAP is to create a gaseous equilibrium between the produce and the sealed atmosphere resulting in lower O 2 and higher CO 2 levels which prolong fruit and. Description Modified Atmosphere Packaging for Fresh-cut Fruits and Vegetables provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of modern MAP technologies for fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. Coverage begins with the general MAP concept and application by introducing the concept of MAP, how MAP works for fresh-cut produce and the benefits and shortfalls of MAP in its application.

In passive modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), the high concentration of CO 2 and low O 2 levels in the package is achieved over time as a result of respiration of the product and gas transmission rates of the packaging film. This method is commonly used for fresh respiring fruits and vegetables. Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) technology has been commercially viable since the s. Currently, MAP is extensively used worldwide to preserve the quality and extend the shelf-life of whole fresh fruits and vegetables, but is also increasingly used to extend the shelf-life of minimally processed fresh fruit and vegetables. Modified Atmosphere Packaging for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Unlike most food products, fresh fruits and vegetables continue to ‘breathe’ or respire after they have been harvested. This process consumes oxygen and produces carbon dioxide and water vapour.   Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) is used to preserve the quality and shelf life of fruits and vegetables. The present study was undertaken with the objective of applying MAP in combination with 2 % NatureSeal and evaluating the following quality attributes during d storage at 4 °C: headspace CO 2 and O 2, color, total soluble solids (TSS), pH, titratable acidity (TA), bacteria and .
