Quality of Frozen Storage of Durian (Durio zibethinus Murray) Pulp

Durian (Durio zibethinus Murr.) is a native and highly priced fruit in Southeast Asia due to its seasonality, unique smell, taste and texture. Because of its seasonality, freezing is one of the means to preserve the excess supply and provide durian during off-seasons. Moreover, it contributes to the reduction of the bulk nature of the fruit and concealing its unique but strong and aroma during shipping and distribution. Freezing is well known for keeping the quality of foods at a longer period, however, there are still quality concerns associated with it depending on the type and characteristics of the commodity. In frozen storage of fruits, studies have been reported for the quality changes related to the chemical and physicochemical properties, texture, color, and volatile profiles. In durian, limited information is provided for the quality changes in the frozen and thawed durian hence, this study is carried out as my Ph. D study.
