Anelise Christ Ribeiro, Rui Carlos Zambiazi, Leonor Almeida de Souza Soares


The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of protein globulin-based films and with addition of phenolic compounds extracted from Spirulina sp. LEB-18 in the conservation of tomatoes "Sweet Grape". For this, the tomatoes were immersed for one min in edible coatings, the first based on phenolic extracts derived from Spirulina sp. LEB-18 and ovalbumin (extracted from eggwhite), and the second based just on ovalbumin, beyond the control sample with only water immersion. Tests of pH, of titratable acidity, of color, of soluble solids, of mass loss and visual analysis were taken every 96 h during the 20 day period. The results show that the coating made with phenolic compounds increased the shelf life of tomatoes type "sweet grape".
