    India invented edible fruit coating, can extend the shelf life

    Echemi 2020-06-01

    Recently, Indian researchers have developed a new coating from oats and wheat for various fruits that can extend the shelf life and overcome the country ’s cold chain challenge in a cheap and effective way.

    The technology was developed by the National Institute of Agricultural Food Biotechnology (NABI) in India and consists of a composite material extracted from wheat straw and oat bran. The ingredient extracted from wheat straw is cellulose arabinoxylan, and the extracted from oat bran is β-glucan stearate (SABGs). These ingredients are made into a water-based emulsion-based coating and applied to fresh fruits such as apples and pears. Applying the formulation to fruits at various concentrations (1% to 4%), it was found that in apples, the shelf life was significantly increased.
