Effects of a Vacuum Chamber on Bananas
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Region:North Channel
City:Elliot Lake, ON
Abstract:'Going Bananas' investigates an alternative method to decrease the ripening process of bananas to ensure a longer shelf life. The bananas were put into partial vacuum and non-vacuum chambers, and were monitored during ripening. The bananas in the partial vacuum chambers had significantly fewer sugar spots compared to those in the non-vacuum.
