Summary

Hot water dipping (HWD) has been proven successful to reduce storage rot in apples. However, excessive heat during dipping easily induces heat stress and physiological disorders which first show up after several weeks in cold storage. A method for early detection of physiological disorders is desirable to further develop the technology for HWD of apples. Apples emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during ripening which may be used as indicators for heat stress in HWD apples.
The aim was to develop an analytical method for VOC profiling of apples dipped in hot water for future use in early detection of physiological disorders in apples.
