Scholarcy highlights

  • Mushrooms are highly perishable products, typically possessing a shelf-life of up to 8 days at 4 °C
  • Headspace gas composition was measured daily non-invasively using optically based O2 and CO2 sensors inserted in each pack and correlated to microbiological and physicochemical characteristics
  • This study confirmed that optically based sensor systems can be used to rapidly monitor non-destructively headspace gases of packed mushrooms continuously
