Modified atmosphere packaging (previous termMAPnext term) relies on the interplay between product-respiration and package-film-permeability with the aim of maintaining initial quality and extending shelf-life of fresh produce. This work evaluates the effect of previous termMAPnext term engineering design parameters (amount of product, number of perforations and weight of CO2 scavenger) on quality of sliced mushrooms. Sliced button mushrooms were packed in a tray, covered with cellophane film, and stored at 10 °C for 3 days. Headspace gas composition and chemical and physical quality parameters ...
