Methods on Physico-Chemical Analysis of Fruits

B.C. Mazumdar (Author) K. Majumder (Author)

Analysis of human consumable fruits become necessary to the students and researchers of fruit science, horticulture, food technology, plant biochemistry, botany, applied botany, forestry, ayurved, pharmaceutics and some other disciplines. Necessity of such analysis is also felt in fruit preservation factories or training centres and to the agricultural marketing personnels in making grading of fruits. It needs pointing out in this context that to assess the quality and nutritive status or compositional features of a fruit, not only the chemical constituents but many physical components of it also become necessary to be determined. There are in fact, a number of books available which have presented the analytical procedure of plant materials and some of these have considered fruit analysis also as a part. These titles have though presented much details and put up several procedure for a component, methodology to assess physical components of fruits has hardly received adequate attention. Therefore, a practical manual on fruit analysis that would exclusively deal on procedural detail of both physical and chemical components of fruits cannot be set at defiance, especially as a number of characteristic features, specific to any species or variety of a fruit sometimes need to be critically considered in a fruit analytical procedure. Keeping the above facts in view, the present title has been attempted. Many of the physical methods of analysis have in fact, been devised by the principal author in his teaching and research career over three decades. The title has before entering into chemical analytical part discussed some fundamental aspects of such analysis and the procedure appeared to be much convenient in estimating a component chemically has been presented.

B.C. Mazumdar

Prof. Bibhas Chandra Mazumdar has been in the profession of teaching and supervising researches on fruit culture, growth and developmental physiology of crop plants and biochemistry of fruit crops in some Indian Universities since the year 1971 after his doctoral degree on biochemistry of growth, flowering and fruiting of mango cultivars. Major areas of his researches in teaching career include growth and developmental aspects of fruit crops, pectic metabolism, plant physiology, papaya latex and on less-exploited minor fruit crops grown in India. In the area on physiology and biochemistry of fruit growth, a number of his research contributions are considered to be of fundamental importance. He has so far to his credit 5 text books on fruit crops and horticulture and 129 research papers published in the journals of India, U.S.A. and U.K. as well as 17 scientific articles brought out in the magazines of India and the U.K. in the same areas.
