Abstract

Strawberries and blackberries were stored under High CO2 (0-30%) and and/or in low O-2 (1-3%) concentrations. Fruits were analysed for their AA, DHA and total vitamin C content. Vitamin C was analysed with fluorimetric method, according to AOAC (1975) which is accepted to be a very sensitive method modified by Agar (1991).
