- ... UV-C treatments have been reported to prevent firmness loss and decay in part by delaying the degradation of fruit structural barriers. The influence of the irradiation regime on wall disassembly has not been determined. We evaluated the influence of single pre-storage and repeated-low dose UV-C treatments on strawberry mechanical properties and cell wall degradation. Ripe strawberry was subjected ...
