Summary: The management of logistic and stock matters encourages the pastry industry to develop quality products with a long shelf-life. This study is based on the desire of Unifine Food and Bake Ingredients
to increase the shelf-life of its fruit fillings. Different fruit fillings (apples, cherries, strawberries) have first been selected. The aging of the products was then characterized through physico-chemical and sensory
analyses. Browning and the loss of hardness of the fruits have been identified as the major alterations of the studied products. After searching for the causes of these alterations, it turned out that the heat
treatment applied to the studied fruit fillings is sufficient to destroy the enzymes responsible for browning. However, this heat treatment also leads to a decrease in ascorbic acid content, which can promote
browning. Finally, several ways of improvements were tested. It seems that an increase in ascorbic acid content and / or an addition of calcium ascorbate may contribute to a slight slowdown of the involved
alterations.

The texture of apples also degrades
through some enzymatic reactions.
Therefore, it would be interesting to
examine more deeply the possibility of
using the thermo-sonication.
Finally, it could be interesting to
determine the shelf-life of actual
product, although this was not the
subject of the initial request Unifine.
This has unfortunately not been
undertaken. To do this, a larger
number of samples would have been
necessary to have a more regular serie
of products. A sensory analysis using a
panel of consumers would have
assessed the shelf-life.

For a better understanding of the
mechanisms of the browning of apple
fillings, it would be appropriate to
analyze the presence of o-quinones.
These molecules are truly the
cornerstone of enzymatic browning.

Result (2) : Sensory analyses

Many causes can conduct to the deterioration of the
fruit fillings. From the arrival of the fruits to the
manufacturing processes and the storage conditions.
Practically, different mecanisms could appear :
enzymatic browning;
non enzymatic browning (coupling reactions,
ascorbic acid
oxidation, Maillard reaction, );
texture changes (viscosity, consistency, hardness,
);
taste and odor changes.

Possible

No obvious correlation in hardness has been found
on these products.

with calcium ascorbate addition

A too short incubator duration (18 days at 37C) dont
allow us to distinct a significant maintaining of the
apple hardness.
