The storage stability of passionfruit concentrate

Isaacs, A.R., Bradley, B.F. and Nottingham, S.M. (2005) The storage stability of passionfruit concentrate. Food Technology in Australia, 40 (8). pp. 318-323.



Passionfruit (Passiflora edulis) concentrates (542 g/kg soluble solids) prepared in a wiped-film evaporator were stored for up to 6 months at - 18°, 4° and 20°C. Yeast and mould counts were taken and colour changes noted during storage. When suitable diluted concentrate colour and flavour were acceptable for 1 month at 20°C, 3 months at 4°C and 6 months at -18°C. Commercial short-term storage of concentrate at temperatures above -18°C appears to be feasible.
