Abstract

Strategies are needed to reduce the substantial fruit losses of Actinidia arguta (speciality fruits) caused by the high perishability of the edible skin. Fruit leathers are considered a valuable opportunity to meet the requirements of today’s consumers searching for healthy and time-saving products. This work aimed to (a) develop a novel baby kiwifruit leather product (four formulations) and (b) evaluate the best formulation under different shelf life conditions. Storage at 25°C and polyethylene samples presented the best colour and received acceptable scores for sensory evaluation at the end of the shelf life.
